The island’s second-largest city, Santiago de Cuba, is rhythmic, buoyant and hot. When you’re ready to escape the heat and slow down a step, head to the Gran Piedra (the Big Rock), located in a microclimate 1200 meters above sea level, but only 20 kilometers from Santiago de Cuba.

The temperature drops noticeably as you drive the 12 kilometers along a switchback road to the top of the rock. If you’re coming from Santiago’s tropical torpor, it will be a welcome change! This microclimate benefits the lush and varied flora that characterizes this area.

The Gran Piedra is precisely that – a massive volcanic rock measuring 51 x 25 x 30mtrs (L x H x W); take the 452 steps to its summit and you’ll be rewarded with beautiful, long vistas over the mountains and down to the coast.

Typically visited on a daytrip, nature lovers and eco tourists will appreciate the peaceful environment provided on an overnight here. Accommodation is in a 2-star hotel, with a corresponding two-star price; the setting however, is sublime. The simple, rustic cabins are brick, with tiled roofs, and extremely spacious – including the balconies with panoramic views, they even feature an open fireplace. The complex boast a restaurant.

The Cafetal La Isabelica, 2 kilometers away, is one of the area’s first coffee plantations, for which it earned a UNESCO World Heritage Site designation. The plantation’s colonial mansion is still intact and worth the visit. Guided hikes on 4 different trails are organized by the hotel.
