The Cuba area is known for its wildlife and beautiful views. Cuba, and indeed all of New Mexico, is known for its spectacular sunsets. If one were to look at the nearby mountains during a particularly good evening they would think they were afire from the red glow of the setting sun. Cuba is also an ideal area for hunting, or wildlife spotting. Herds of elk, and deer roam the nearby foothills, and the Jicarilla reservation. The high number of large private ranches in the Cuba and Lindrith areas combined with high deer and elk population attracts hunters from all over the world.
