Hotel Villa Soroa, Eastern Cuba


An Overview by Authentic Cuba Travel

Hotel Villa Soroa is located in the mountain range of Sierra del Rosario, a World Biosphere Reserve in Pinar del Rio Province.

This is an ideal exploration point for nature lovers given the close proximity to the attractive 21-meter Soroa's Waterfall and Cuba's largest (and very beautiful) Soroa's Orchid Garden.

Soroa is often called "the rainbow of Cuba" because at certain hours, it is possible to observe a small Rainbow at the waterfall as the sunlight defuses through the mist. The hotel consists of 80 air-conditioned two-room cottages. Facilities include 3 restaurants, 5 bars, swimming pool, day and night-entertainment programs.

The surrounding countryside is lush, hilly and very pleasant to wander around. For those into birdwatching, there are several viewing stations dotted around, for photographers, the area can affords a good opportunity for fauna and flora shots.

This is an unpretentious and pleasant place which is not going to disappoint as long as your expectations are set at a moderate level. Legal Cuba Travel for American Professionals
