Topes de Collantes is a nature reserve park almost 800 meters above sea level, featuring rich flora and fauna privileged by the peculiar climatological conditions of that magical place in the central Cuban province of Sancti Spíritus, most specifically near the former Villa de la Santísima Trinidad.
Topes de Collantes is one of Cuba’s most beautiful natural settings, where patients from all over the country and different parts of the world can receive treatment at a hotel specializing in rehabilitation services and therapies: The Kurhotel.
This Cuban tourist resort, initially built in the 1930s as a spa near the former tuberculosis hospital, attracts national and foreign nature lovers who enjoy bird watching, as the place is home to more than one hundred bird species, 45 percent of which are endemic to Cuba.
Visitors may also be delighted by the nearly 800 pieces made by famous Cuban painters that are on display in the rooms and other different areas of the hotel.
The Tope de Collantes park is also home to a large variety of flowers including Cuba’s national flower the mariposa (butterfly), some 15 pine tree species, 12 species of eucalyptus and nearly one hundred types of ornamental plants such as orchids and tree ferns.
Some 20 kilometers from Trinidad –the city founded by Diego Velázquez in 1514- and 350 kilometers from Havana, Topes de Collantes comprises an area of 110 square kilometers featuring famous paths, caves, rivers and waterfalls.Share on FB Share on TT
