Welcome to El Nicho

El Nicho is the name of a refreshing waterfall on the Río Hanabanilla reached by a short trail that passes two natural pools (where you can swim). Just beyond the falls is a mirador offering views over lush mountains and the distant Embalse Hanabanilla

The beautiful road to El Nicho via Cumanayagua is legendary for its twists and turns. 'Tienes mas curvas de la carretera por Cumanayagua' (you have more curves than the road to Cumanayagua) is reportedly a compliment to chicas (girls) hereabouts. The falls make a popular and worthwhile day trip from Cienfuegos, but don't expect to have the place to yourself.
