There are terrific hiking and trekking possibilities on the Cuban island and the three-day trek over the Sierra Maestra from Alto del Naranjo to Las Cuevas, crossing Pico Turquino, Cuba's highest mountain, is a highlight for many energetic travelers. Marked walking trails, maps and professional guides are almost nonexistent but local residents will usually guide you for just a few dollars.
-Horseback riding is also popular among visitors, and special tourist ranches have been established at Baconao and Trinidad.
-The northeasterly tradewinds bring good swells between December and April, but surfers will have to bring their own boards as none are locally available for rent.
-Cuba is endowed with wonderful areas for scuba diving and the 30-odd dive centers across the country offer organized dives, courses and equipment for hire.
-Deep-sea fishing is also popular in Cuba's waters.
