Natural Treasures of Guantanamo, Cuba



Photo feature by Lorenzo Crespo Silveira

HAVANA TIMES — Cuba’s landscapes have inspired many professional and amateur artists and photographers at home and abroad to capture the many details of our natural surroundings – from the island’s marvelous sun rises and sun sets, through its rivers and palm trees (a symbol of Cuban identity) to its mountains and varied, tree-covered peaks.

Guantanamo, the province furthest from Havana, located at the eastern end of the island, is home to eye-catching natural landscapes that have been very well preserved.

I invite you to enjoy this selection of photographs that capture Guantanamo’s natural treasures.

  • The Base is an eyesore and a blot on the beautiful country. Please shut it down and remove it from Cuban soil A.S.A.P.
