Artemisa is a real breeze of fresh air for the visitor leaving Havana. It features a fertile plain from the end of Havana to the beginning of the mountains of Sierra de Rosario. Tourists tend to disregard this are because its towns do not have much touristic interest, but are a true weekend for the Havana locals.

One of the great attractions of Artemisa is the town known as Las Terrazas, the ecological capital of Cuba, that enjoys a unique situation. Artemis is also known for offering a wide range of natural outdoor activities in the lush hillsides of Sierra del Rosario.

In this area, life follows a slower pace. This region enjoys a microclimate with more rain and temperatures three to four degrees lower than in Havana. The best time to visit the area is between February and May, when weather is more benevolent and rain is not too common.
