We accidentally ended up on a long, steep hike one day! We were meant to go on a gentle walk through the countryside to swim in some pools inside a cave near Baracoa, Cuba. Unfortunately for us the military had decided to do some training in the region so we chose an alternate route.
It was amazing, but I thought I was going to drop dead from exhaustion! Hiking is really not my thing! We walked all the way to the top of the hill and down the other side, it took us about 4 hours. We visited some local farms at the top of the hill and ate tropical fruit straight from the trees. We ended up on this beautiful yet treacherous beach at the end, so no swimming but a stunning outlook.
