This time we stopped in the mountains in the south of Cuba. Here we have forests, lots of colorful birds, butterflies and, of course, rivers. Our hotel up in the mountains is located at a river with a waterfall, where the water falls down in a pond. The hotel consists of same small houses. Approximately 40 – 50 guests can get a bed here. The photo above shows our hotels dining room and I’m standing in the middle of the (now nearly dry) river.
Do you remember, I already told you February and March belong to the dry period. The dry period begins in October / November and lasts until April / May. Having this in mind, you can easily see, why this river hasn’t that much water in early March. I’d really like to see, the waterfall during the raining period.
Even we’re in a tropic area, where they don’t have fall (autumn), some trees loosing their foliage during the dry period to spare water. But, nevertheless, it’s still green everywhere and we didn’t experience any water rationing here.
For today, I only picked out some photos showing the river, the waterfall and the pond. More on the nature around, the birds and the butterflies in one of my next posts.
