Just an hour’s drive west of Havana lies Soroa Cuba, a stunning natural area of rolling hills and beautiful tropical scenery known as ‘Cuba’s rainbow’ for its spectacular array of colours. A designated UNESCO Biosphere Reserve, Soroa is home to Cuba’s most extensive botanical garden; this peaceful natural location is surrounded by coffee plantations and home to tall trees and orchids. The name Soroa has its origin in the surname of the two Spanish brothers: Lorenzo and Antonio Soroa Muñagorri, who came to this place in 1856 and, captivated by its beauty, decided to settle here and acquire the La Merced coffee plantation and a few years later several neighbouring coffee plantations, whose ruins you can gaze at during your stay.
Visit Soroa, tropical Eden, and lose yourself touring one of the most valuable natural reserves on the island of Cuba.
Soroa, a privileged natural environment, is one of those places that are only found in Cuba where the sun and tropical rains combine and explode in trees, rivers and waterfalls that stretch as far as the eye can see. Named “the rainbow of Cuba”, this small oasis is within your reach since it is located at a convenient distance from Havana, on the limits of the Sierra del Rosario. Make the most of your stay in Cuba. Do not miss this opportunity to admire this natural setting of great beauty, which Unesco declared a Biosphere Reserve due to its variety of species.
The ruins of the old coffee plantations populate the surroundings of this natural paradise and give it a romantic atmosphere that you can observe by taking a day trip, easily achievable both on foot and by bicycle. Enjoy exploring the wildest of Cuba through its mountains and rivers while you become one with nature in one of the most beautiful areas in the west of the island.
