Desembarco del Granma National Park

Desembarco del Granma National Park, in south-western Cuba, is located within the Niquero and Pilón municipalities of Granma Province. Named after the yacht in which Fidel Castro, Che Guevara, Raúl Castro, and 79 of their compatriots sailed from Mexico to Cuba in 1956, the park is known for its rugged karst topography and coastal cliffs. Spanning 32,576 hectares, with 26,180 hectares being terrestrial and 6,396 hectares being marine, the park was designated a World Heritage Site by UNESCO in 1999, due to its stunning uplifted marine terraces and unspoiled sea cliffs.
