The combination of mountains with forests, valleys, mesas, clear rushing rivers; along side coral reefs, pocket bays, and keys; as well as springs, lakes, and waterfalls, in the cool, rainy climate typical of the territory, make this National Park one of Cuba's most impressive natural landscapes shared by the provinces of Holguin and Guantanamo.

Eight years ago, the Cuban city of Banes waked up almost completely destroyed by hurricane Ike. It seemed that it has been bombarded. More than the 80 percent of its housing stock was hit to different degrees. The strong winds of this devastating event went over 300 kilometers per tour. Many things have changed since ten on, but the sad time lived on the night of 7th to the 8th of September, 2008 is still remembered.
