El Nicho Waterfall

Located in the Sierra del Escambray mountains not far from Cienfuegos, El Nicho waterfall is said to be Cuba's most beautiful. Including it on a custom tour itinerary is possible and adds an additional 2 hours of drive time on some tortuous mountain roads between Cienfuegos and Trinidad.

El Nicho is actually a series of waterfalls and the beauty has as much to do with the colour of the water in the river pools and the surrounding forest as much as the height and scale of the falls themselves.
