Baconao Park is a World Heritage Biosphere Reserve, boasting teeming wildlife refuges, coffee plantations and history exhibits. The park features varied attractions, from life size dinosaur models lurking in the lush vegetation to a museum dedicated to the 26th of July Movement, regarded as the beginning of the Cuban Revolution and occuring right there in the region. Climbing the 459 steps to the summit of La Gran Piedra some 4,049ft (1,234m) above sea level may even afford travellers the chance to see the twinkling lights of Jamaica on a clear night sky. The Jardin Ave de Paraiso is a magnificent 45 hectare (111-acre) garden dating from 1860. The park also contains an aquarium and a car museum.
