Exciting places can be found just outside Havana, though perhaps in a different perspective and where life takes place in a lower gear. Majestic nature, art studios and projects, early ecotourism and a singular Cuban community set the framework of this day.

Leaving Havana - on the way to Las Terrazas - you'll will park first in front of ¨Fusterlandia¨ - a stunning open air art project. Cuban artist José Antonio Rodríguez Fuster not only tiled his own house and studio in a mosaic style, but also the whole neighborhood. Only one name pops up: Gaudi.

Las Terrazas is an ecotourism center only 73km west of Havana. It dates backs to 1968 when the Cuban government launched a massive reforestation project on the terraced hills ringing the area. The project, included the creation of a village where approximately 1200 people maintain a largely self-contained community, became an internationally-recognized success. The buildings in the village were designed to blend in with their natural surroundings - the fabulous Hotel Moka is a prime example. (Las Terrazas, and the surrounding Sierra del Rosario national park were named a UNESCO biosphere reserve).

You can see it all on a guided walk through the town, complemented by visits to the open studios of local artists, and the home of singer Polo Montañez. The meteoric popularity of this folk singer meant his lyrics were heard everywhere, with Cubans enthusiastically singing along. After his tragic death in 2002, his house became a kind of museum.

The program also includes a lunch, a walk to the ruins of a 19th century coffee plantation, as well as swimming in the river San Juan.
