Las Terrazas – Artemisa – Cuba.

When planning our visit to Cuba, it can’t be more exciting. All those classic American Cars, Cigars, #BestMojitos in the world, fantastic people and fabulous beaches, what’ else do we need? A bit of time to simply Unwind you might think, right. That’s exactly what crosses my mind when deciding to visit Las Terrazas.

About an hour drive from Havana towards Vinales (Western Cuba) we find the community of Las Terrazas, where Hotel Moka (4*, B&B) is found. There is a great story behind this settlement. The community of Las Terrazas was developed as a way to improve the life’s of the local farmers and to reforest the eroded mountains of what now is Las Terrazas. Farmers started planting new trees in terraces made on the mountains so that the trees had the best chance to grow and get what we can see as a result now.
