Description Nature Trails: La Serafina Trail, Pinar del Rio. Cuba
This route has a 6.000 meters length. Partly it goes along the Western slope of the Valle del Río San Juan, and partly along the margins of this river. After having walked the first kilometer, one arrives to an excellent vantage point allowing the visitor to appreciate the picturesque Las Terrazas community, harmonically inserted in the surrounding Nature.
All along the route, the visitor may appreciate the wide biodiversity of the vegetation, flora and fauna, particularly the evergreen forests, the wide plains vegetation, and the pine forests, and learn about the different uses the local population makes of each of these vegetal species.
After descending more then 3.000 meters one arrives to the ruins of the Santa Serafina coffee plantation, located at the margins of the San Juan River. This historic place, founded in the early XIX century, was the result of the French presence in Sierra del Rosario and the consequent development of the coffee plantations, after the Haitian revolution in 1791.
Once the visit has concluded, the route continues descending 2.000 meters through the river valley, to reach the Rancho del Curujey.

La Serafina Trail is located in Pinar del Rio
Because of the richness, variety and excellent preservation of its flora and fauna, Pinar del Río is called "the garden of Cuba." UNESCO has declared the Guanahacabibes Peninsula and the Rosario Mountain Range biosphere reserves, and the Viñales Valley a world cultural heritage. The land in which the world's best tobacco is grown also offers you wonderful opportunities for scuba diving, hunting, fishing or simply relaxing and tanning at the beach.,
Since the 19th century, Havana residents have been drawn by the natural beauty of Vueltabajo, and they have flocked to Los Portales Cave, to San Diego de los Baños, to receive the benefits of its mineral-medicinal and thermal waters; and to the Viñales Valley, to gaze at its natural beauty.,
Pinar del Río is just 174 km (108 miles) from Havana. A good highway links the two cities. The architecture in its historic center is eclectic, and its low houses in gentle colors, whose porches seem to form an endless gallery, have great charm. On the outskirts of the city, modern buildings break its horizontal lines. ,
When visiting Pinar del Río's provincial capital, be sure to tour the Guayabita del Pinar Distillery, where the drink of the same name is still made by hand, following an age-old recipe; the Guash Palace, the Milanés Theater and the Rumayor Cabaret.,
Quiet, comfortable hotels have been built in some of the most beautiful spots in Pinar del Río, to facilitate your enjoyment of Nature. Cayo Levisa has a delightful, sunny beach, and the province also offer excellent opportunities for scuba diving, hunting and fishing.
