HAVANA TIMES — Ferns, coming from tropical countries, are also very common in Cuba, including the mountainous regions of Cuba’s East, such as in the case of the province of Guantanamo. Here, we still have untouched areas where the natural environment has been zealously conserved and where we can find hundreds of different species of ferns.

There are all kinds of families and classes of ferns with their individual characteristics that define them one from the other. There are also environmental programs directed at conserving and protecting these specimens which need specific attention.

With similar care, they are often found decorating state institutions and in patios and inside family homes in Guantanamo, looked after as if they were in their natural habitat.

    Nice shots.

    The Bosque de La Habana (Havana Forest) always blow me away. I can’t believe the insanity of the city is just a few minutes away.

    Now, if they’d just clean up the Almendares River running through it…. a total embarrassment….
