Alejandro de Humboldt National Park

Named for German scientist Alexander von Humboldt, Alejandro de Humboldt National Park is located in the Cuban provinces of Holguín and Guantánamo and is a UNESCO World Heritage Site. It boasts an impressive size, altitude range, diverse lithology, landform variety, and a wealth of endemic flora and fauna, with the rivers that flow off its peaks being some of the largest in the insular Caribbean. The park covers an area of 711.38 km2, containing 685.72 km2 of land and 22.63 km2 of marine area, with the highest point reaching 1,168 m at El Toldo Peak. It is the most humid place in Cuba and, as a result, is home to an incredible range of biodiversity.
