Cuba: Las Terrazas

Visit Us

Once a deforested landscape of scrubby grassland in western Cuba, just 74km from Havana, Las Terrazas was chosen by Castro as the site for an experiment in re-establishing the original lush tropical vegetation. The project was a success and UNESCO designated the community and its land a biosphere reserve in 1985. Now it is testament to the robust vibrancy of nature, with a rich variety of flora and fauna, silvery lakes, rushing streams and winding walking trails. It’s a popular tourist attraction, and visitors flock here to relax in the cool climate or take part in outdoor activities such as horse riding swimming, biking and canyoning.
