Ojito Wilderness, south of Cuba

Cuba has been a sleepy little town for many years but has recently started to spurt with growth: there is a relatively large amount of new construction including several hotels, restaurants and bars. Perhaps it's the location beside the busy US Highway 550... Santa Fe National Forest is to the east, open mesalands and desert to the west and south. The 2005 National Holiday Tree was harvested just east of town.

The Jemez Mountain Trail passes through Cuba. The population of Cuba is up almost 25% since 2000.
