This spot is located in Sierra del Rosario, just above Candelaria. Soroa is also known as Cuba’s Rainbow.

The frequent rains in this area contribute to the growth of trees and orchids, which make this the perfect place for Soroa Orchidarium. The unusual name of this area is indebted to the Spanish brothers Lorenzo and Antonio Soroa Muñagorri, who arrived here in 1856 wanting to become wealthy. They bought the La Merced coffee plantation and, shortly after, the nearby plantations.
