Guanahacabibes National Park
Guanahacabibes peninsula is at the western end of Pinar del Rio. In this national park, considered a Reserve of the Biosphere, there is a surprising variety of landscapes and ecosystems: evergreen forests, mangrove, beach coasts with swampy vegetation, high reef coasts and sandy coasts with a vegetation of sea grapes, palm trees and mastic. The pine forests are indigenous and vast, and the grassy plains hold the richest fauna in these ecosystems. The fauna is rich on aquatic birds, mollusks and reptiles. Here is Maria la Gorda Scuba Diving Center, famous for its transparent marine landscapes, where it is possible to find multiple species of corals, the biggest colony of black coral in the Cuban seas.
