Soroa, a tropical getaway

This beautiful waterfall, called El Salto, is more than 60 feet high

Soroa is a quiet ecological paradise just 54 miles west of Havana. It features:

* One of the world's largest orchid gardens
* A peculiar old castle built in 1867
* A gorgeous waterfall - and visitors are welcome to swim in the water below it

Soroa is also home to Cuba's national bird, el Tocororo.
