Hiking and Horseback Riding

More Sports and Activities

Cubans favor the Parque Escaleras de Jaruco, 25 km (15 mi) east of La Habana, for hiking or horseback-riding outings. Well-marked trails of varying degrees of difficulty and length wind through the park's rolling hills and along its limestone cliffs, which are full of caves and underground streams. It makes a good day trip from the city, particularly if you stop at one of the Playas del Este on the way back. From Havana, take the Autopista Nacional 15 km (9 mi) east to the turnoff for Tapaste and Jaruco. The park is 6 km (4 mi) west of Jaruco village.
