And just when you thought it couldn’t get any better, we’ll take you to the hidden gem of Soroa. Prepare to be enchanted by the rainbow rays reflecting off the stunning waters of this beautiful region. Explore the Biosphere Reserve, home to towering trees, vibrant orchids, and a plethora of fascinating flora and fauna.
Soroa is the home of the incredible Orchid Garden. Created in 1943 by a visionary Spaniard, this expansive garden transports you to a world of enchantment. Wander through lush paths framed by towering trees, ferns, and charming greenhouses, where an array of delicate and intricately colored orchids captivate your senses. With over 6,000 ornamental plants and 700 species, including 250 native to Cuba, this is a botanical paradise unlike any other. To fully immerse yourself in this floral wonderland, embark on a guided tour of the Orquideario, a truly unforgettable experience.
But that’s not all – venture further into Soroa and you’ll encounter the majestic Salto de Soroa, a spellbinding waterfall measuring an impressive 22.95 metres. Ascend the hiking trail enveloped by magnificent trees for awe-inspiring views or take a refreshing dip in the crystalline waters of the natural swimming pools. As you explore, don’t miss the chance to visit the Mirador de Venus, a lookout point offering breathtaking vistas of the surrounding valley.
Soroa also harbors a wealth of Cuba’s unique birdlife. Delight in the serenade of over 50 different bird species within the tropical forests, igniting a passion for the avian wonders of this untouched sanctuary. Prepare your binoculars and prepare to be amazed.
A haven of natural splendor, Soroa has only recently opened its doors to tourism. Compared to its bustling counterpart, Las Terrazas, Soroa remains a tranquil escape, offering an unparalleled opportunity to reconnect with nature.
