Parque Rio Canimar (Canimar River Park)
When coming from Jibacoa, the Rio Canimar is located a few kilometers after the city of Matanzas. This is nature park crossed by a beautiful river that flows between two hills and where you can enjoy many activities: Boat tours, swimming in the river, swimming or snorkeling in the Cueva de Saturno (Saturn Cave), horseback riding, rowboat rides, fishing, or simply relax and observe the tick jungle-like vegetation.
In the Rio Canimar Nature Park you’ll also find “La Arboleda” which is a ranch where you can enjoy a typical Cuban meal and other nature activities; this place is often visited by tour groups. At the boat dock (near the Via Blanca bridge) there’s a bar and restaurant and sometimes an outdoor show (Indigenous dances) is performed there.
