If what you want to know is the typical life of the Cuban farmer, their parties, the work in the countryside, their cuisine then we recommend visiting the agro-tourism project called La Picadora in the town of Mayajigua, where you'll know a typical farmers community between mountains and the tasks they carry out in their daily lives: coffee harvest, collection of beans, work in the land. We include talks with the farmers on different topics such as education and health. Also, very close of the place is the National Park and Caguanes biosphere reserve with one of the most complete speleological complexes in Cuba.
