The Alexander von Humboldt National Park is the biggest National Reserve of Cuba. It measures 70 hectares and is located on the Eastern coast of the island, 50 Km North of Baracoa. It is worth a visit, but not many people venture into this inhospitable region. The Baracoa to Moa road by which you reach the entrance of the park resembles a river bed more than a road. A guide is mandatory, as you would get lost in the immensity of the park, where there are no signposts or other indicators. Our guide – his name is Indio – already had experience with photographic expeditions. Last year he was with a team of the German TV filming a documentary on the park, and carrying the heavy tripod of the TV camera.
