Hiking in Las Terrazas
Enjoy the fresh air and rural landscape on walks in a biosphere reserve within easy reach of the capital.
Numerous short walks in the beautiful, bucolic region of Las Terrazas offer the chance to enjoy the Cuban countryside without straying far from Havana.
One of our favourites is to the ruins of the Santa Serafina coffee plantation, reached via a leisurely hike along a river valley where clear waters cascade from forested banks dripping with flora and fauna.
For a slightly tougher challenge, there are some steep inclines to be tackled on the climb up to the top of El Taburete hill, but you'll be rewarded with excellent views all the way to the coast and the chance to take a relaxing dip in the Río San Juan baths on the way back down. An easier option is the short trek overlooking the San Juan valley, easily combined with a visit to a working coffee farm.
