Our last stop before heading back to Havana was Las Terrazas. This beautiful town was established as a social project in 1960s by the revolutionary government to help with the afforestation of an area extensively damaged ecologically by deforestation for decades. The result of the project are terraces lush forest and a community 1000 people. In addition to the beautiful rainforest a series of rivers, pools and waterfalls make this area popular with tourists.

Enjoying the natural fish pedicure at one of the ponds at Las Terrazas! Such a weird sensation but worth waiting for. 

Mmmmmm fresh coconut - so fresh that the barman climbed the tree to get it! 

Some of the houses that make up the small community. 


Las Terrazas is now recognised as a UNESCO Biosphere Reserve. 

 To top it all off we got to stay at the Hotel la Moka, a lovely hotel in stunning location and some great views from the bath tubs! 

Really tasty Cuban coffee served at Cafe de Maria - especially the frappe. 

Spotting Cuba's national bird - the Cuban Trogon with the same red, white and blue if the flag.
