Las Terrazas is a small mountain community and UNESCO biosphere reserve that is advertised as a vacation destination for Cubans. Most people came by bus from Havana during the day and departed in the evening, leaving the town blissfully tranquil for the ~1000 residents and 6 international tourists who were fortunate enough to stay there overnight, including Josh and yours truly.
…and the communally owned pet monkey. His partner died a few years back. I would imagine he is lonely.
Everything about this place was a joy. Our casa was in a lush forest that provided tropical fruit. Las Terrazas was also home to the absolute best food that we ate in Cuba, at La Fonda de Maria. (Maria’s Balcony).
