Forests of Eastern Cuba

Cuba Beyond the Beaches is pleased to bring you the Forests of Eastern Cuba tour. A unique perspective on this intriguing part of Cuba, is through its tremendous variety of forested areas.

This tour takes you from the misty heights of an old volcano, to a tropical rain forest, a scrubland of hardy pines, and one of the most unique environments for any plants – the heavy metal serpentine forests.

This tour is led by one of Cuba’s leading botanist. Known and respected around the world, he has been collecting, drawing, growing, and teaching about plants for most of his life.

Manuel Caluff is best known for his work with tropical ferns and orchids – but any journey with him is a ticket into an unimaginably intriguing world.
