Fodor's Review

At the end of the road from Pinar del Río, the village of La Bajada lies at a junction: the road to the left heads to Playa María la Gorda (14 km [9 miles] south), the one to the right takes you into the park, a UNESCO Biosphere Reserve. The drive out to Cuba's western tip at Cabo de San Antonio, 54 km (33 miles) over a rough dirt track, is a long haul to undertake, unless you're eager to explore the wilderness. If you go, bring food and drink; a cooler and a few sandwiches are advised. Your best transportation bet is to take a bus from Pinar del Río (about CUC$39) or book a tour with Gaviota, one of the state-owned tour companies, which also operates the hotel in María La Gorda.
