Eastern Cuba Sights

Pico Turquino

  • Geological Site

Fodor's Review

The summit of Pico Turquino, Cuba's highest peak at 1,974 meters (6,476 feet), is 13 km (8 mi) from the Comandancia de la Plata. A journey here involves a night of camping, typically at a tent camp at the mountain's base. Cooks are sometimes available, but you have to bring your own food. Showers and fog alternate with sun and daytime heat, and humidity alternates with chilly windy nights, so in addition to good hiking boots, you need clothing that you can layer and a lightweight rain jacket.
