PINAR DEL RIO
At 90 kilometres from Pinard el Rio, Soroa is a small haven of peace located in the middle of a luxuriant vegetation. Its uneven relief and its magnificent waterfalls invite you to take walks of a rare freshness in Cuba. The park has been declared a biosphere heritage site by UNESCO.
The orchid garden (orquideario): Designed by Tomas Felipe Camacho and always maintained, this garden would concentrate between 500 and a thousand species of orchids! Visits are from 09h to 16h30. The species bloom from November onwards, so the next three months are the most interesting.
The waterfall: Below Soroa, this enchanted place (20 meters waterfall) offers magnificent rainbows. Departure from the restaurant El salto, 30 minutes walk, paying access.
The mirador: Stroll on the wild ridges bordering Soroa. In summer, the hills take on a crimson colour. At the start of the journey, you can turn left towards the sulphurous water swimming pool, renowned for its therapeutic virtues.
Las Terrazas has been classified as a World Biosphere Reserve by UNESCO since 1985.
