There are several organized hikes, some including visits to the nearby historical Palmar Bonito site (This is where in 1895 they took up arms against Spanish colonialism and for the independence of the country. Even though the uprising failed, it remained an important milestone in the history of Cuba.), the former Australia sugar mill complex (once a productive sugar mill, but now closed down and converted into a museum), or flooded caves where you can enjoy a swim in natural wells.
