Arrival in Las Terrazas
Las Terrazas is flanked by lush forested hills that roll into the horizon. When you arrive, you’ll check into your unusual eco-resort with an airy atrium built around a giant lime tree. The branches disappear through the skylight and several of the rooms have trees growing through the balconies and ceilings. With a swimming pool, restaurant and open-air bar, it’s somewhere you won’t forget in a hurry.
Guided walk & departure
On day 2 you’ll set out to explore with a local guide. You’ll visit Rancho Curujey, where you’ll learn about the history and purpose of the eco-project, which now sustains a whole community. Next, you’ll explore the stunning scenery of Las Terrazas, taking in the ruins, drying fields and grinders of the former coffee plantations.
En route, you’ll drop in at La Casa del Café de Maria to share a punchy cup of local coffee with the farmers. Top it off with a refreshing dip in the natural pools of Baños de San Juan. The rest of your time is your own to relax by the lake next to the resort, browse the artist studios for a sustainable souvenir or pop into the pottery workshops. For something really authentic, swing by a paladar – a small, family-run restaurant – and grab a traditional Cuban meal.
The next day you’ll pack up your things ready for your next adventure.

A Peek at Our Casa Accommodation
Switch to our Casa accommodation
Our casa in nearby Soroa has private rooms and bathroom with a garden where you can sit and relax. The rooms are well maintained and the service is friendly. If travelling by hire car, you would drive to Las Terrazas for your included excursion or if travelling by transfers you’ll be collected and dropped off by taxi. Our eco-hotel sometimes has limited availability so when fully booked we think this is the best alternative option.
