About Las Terrazas
Las Terrazas is a small community and nature reserve in Pinar del Río province. Located in the Sierra del Rosario mountain range (designated a Biosphere Reserve by UNESCO in 1984), it has one hotel, some restaurants and a large area of secondary forest. The secondary forest was planted on the deforested hills by building terraces to avoid erosion; hence the name (in Spanish, Terrazas means terraces). The main attraction is the Rio San Juan, it is said the waters make one more youthful. No domestic flights. Overland transfer from Havana around 1 ½ hours.
