Archaeological Trail El Guafe in Granma

Archaeological Trail El Guafe

About 8 km southwest of “Las Coloradas beach” you’ll find the Archaeological Trail of El Guafe which is about 3 km in length. The Desembarco del Granma National Park’s only advertised archaeological site. An underground river here has created 20 large caverns, one of which contains the famous “Idolo del agua” (water’s idol) carved from stalagmites by pre-Colombian Indians.

You should allow about two hours for the stroll in order to take in the butterflies, 180 different species of birds (including the tiny “colibrí”) and multiple orchids. There’s also a 500 year old cactus en the route.
