Still well off the radar, this ecological reserve hides a little-explored stash of mountains, waterfalls, forest and steep limestone cliffs. In the Guamuhaya mountain range, the reserve's highest peak is 842m. Foothills are replete with rivers, abundant plant life, including epiphyte cacti, and the ruins of a handful of pioneering 19th-century farmhouses.
The park headquarters is at Jarico, 3.5km up a beaten track leading off the Sancti Spíritus–Trinidad road. It incorporates a ranchón-style restaurant, visitors center and chalet with eight double rooms.
Within shouting distance is the Cascada Bella waterfall and a natural swimming pool. From Jarico the 6km La Sabina trail leads to an eponymous biostation and La Sabina Chalet. Guided day hikes (CUC$3) are charged separately from entry to the reserve.
