Comandancia de la Plata

Fodor's Review

The Comandancia de la Plata, the revolutionary headquarters, is just 3 km (2 mi) west of the entrance to Parque Nacional Turquino. A relaxing, one-hour walk on a clearly marked trail along a ridge brings you to a remote forest clearing. Here you'll find Castro's command post, hospital, and residence—built with an escape route into an adjacent creek. This is the perfect trek if you have limited time: you can get a taste of the region in the morning and return to the lowlands by early afternoon.
