    Treks in the Biosphere Reserve

    There are heaps of walks to be taken in the Reserve, many of them starting at Las Terrazas. It'll cost you US$3 to drive in (unless you are staying at Hotel Moka). There are many ruins in the hills - namely coffee plantations - which you can walk to, but make life easier and park/drive. The hills behind Moka rise to 560metres, those opposite are lower lying - 380 metres. You get great views over the town looking across to Loma del Salon (highest point).

    Built in 1971 as a forestry and soil conservation station, the small town is the main centre for the Biosphere Reserve and accommodation if you want to stay in the Biosphere. It's a well laid out little town centred round a lake. In addition to the superb Hotel Moka (see separate tip), you'll find a couple of restaurants, rowing on the lake, horse treks thorugh the biosphere and numerous walks /drives into the Reserve beginning at the town.

    A botanic study centre for the raising of orchids (and other flora) is based in Soroa and is open to the public. Some 700 orchids are reared here, 250+ native to Cuba. Its a very pleasant way to spend a couple of hours wondering through the grounds.

    Directly across the road from the Orquidarium is an old water mill and a lovely tree-covered walk along a stream to a series of small waterfalls.
