On the way to Vinales, we tooka quick stop at Las Terrazas. This small coffee-growing village was situated in the mountains, and was beautiful to explore. Here a farmer shows us a few of his drying coffee beans. From Wikipedia: Las Terrazas is a small community and nature reserve in the municipality of Candelaria, Artemisa Province, Cuba. It is located in the Sierra del Rosario mountains (part of Guaniguanico range), which was designated a Biosphere Reserve by UNESCO in 1984. The village has a population of about 1,000 and a number of hotels and restaurants catering for tourists. The nature reserve includes 5000ha of secondary forest[1] which was planted on the surrounding (deforested) hills by building terraces to avoid erosion; hence the name (in Spanish, terrazas means terraces).[2] The reserve is rich in flora and fauna, and includes lakes, rivers and waterfalls. Organised excursions on the many footpaths and trails can be booked at the local tourist office.[3]
