Mirador de Topes de Collantes (Trinidad Province) Cuba

                   Topes de Collantes is a nature reserve park in the Escambray Mountains range in central Cuba. The Mirador (viewing platform) that these photos were taken from are within the Sancti Spiritus Province. The park lies within two other provinces as well, Cienfuegos province and Santa Clara province. We were on our way to the El Nicho waterfall which was North from Trinidad for about 2 hours to Cienfuegos province. This spot is about 30 minutes from Trinidad. I would recommend that if you travel beyond this point don't do it without an adequate vehicle...we were in a 4x4. Peaks can rise up to 1000 meters beyond this point and driving can be a little tricky or impossible if you're not in the right type of car. This was the first of two stops along the way. There was a little snack shop in a separate building below, to the right, a fairly long set of steep stairs that make their way to the platform. Great views, definitely worth the 10 minute stop. No Charge
