The Guanahacabibes Peninsula, in Cuba’s westernmost province, Pinar del Río, is an excellent place to combine biodiversity and tourism.

Among the most recent discoveries in the area are 27 small and medium-size mollusks, including snails, shells and octopuses.

Declared a Biosphere Reserved by the United Nations Educational, Scientific and Cultural Organization (UNESCO), the region holds 150 places of scientific interest and has a rich and diverse fauna of vertebrates and invertebrates.

The Guanahacabibes Peninsula is also the habitat of 126 species of birds (37 percent of the total number of birds living in the country), four species of reptiles and four out of six orders of mammals existing in Cuba.

According to experts, the most interesting areas for scientific research are María La Gorda, Las Tumbas, Cabo de San Antonio, Punta Palmajes and Ensenada de Bolondrón.
