Just over an hour from the hustle and bustle and dust of Havana, the ecovillage and nature preserve of Las Terrazas attracts hundreds of day-trippers, hoping to catch a glimpse of the natural beauty Cuba has to offer. And visitors aren't disappointed. Canopy tours, natural baths, and the serenity of the designated UNESCO biosphere are exactly what most people need after a few days in Havana.
For coffee lovers, the trip to Las Terrazas is also a must. Some of the oldest coffee plantations in Cuba are located in Las Terrazas and many offer tours and tastings.
