Excursion from Havana to Soroa
On this day trip, you will leave the hustle and bustle of Havana and head westwards. On the way, you will pass lush green landscapes, together with brightly coloured houses as you head to the small village of Soroa.
Often referred to as the “Gate to the Garden of Eden”, the village is a popular starting point for exploring the sheer Sierra del Rosario Mountain Range. Tomás Felipe Camacho, a wealthy landowner from the Canary Islands, first founded the world-renowned orchid garden here in 1943. Over 700 species of orchid can be found here, including rare species such as the Bird of Paradise Flower and the San Pedro Flower.
In Soroa there are also approximately 20,000 species of plant, as well as thousands of palm tree species and other trees, making Soroa one of the most unique UNESCO World Biosphere Reserves.
After lunch, which is included in our price, you will visit the “Salto del Arco Iris” Waterfall. The Rio Manantiades meanders through thick rainforests before rushing down this 22m high waterfall. At the foot of the waterfall, there is a bathing pool which invites you to go for a short refreshing dip. This part of the island is often aptly referred to as the “rainbow of Cuba”, thanks to its unique flora and fauna.
After a fun-filled and inspiring day in the Soroa region, you will head back to Havana.
