We took a minibus tour from our hotel. We visited a tobacco farm and drank delicious coffee they had grown and ground there, we sampled sugar cane juice again grown on site and, of course, bought some cigars from the farmer. We visited underground caves and took a boat trip through them - amazing. We visited the "prehistoric" wall -... More

Get a guide, rent some horses or bicycles and roam this naturally beautiful area. Look for (do not disturb) the Santoria shrines hidden in every ceba tree. Check out the fincas, learn about tobacco and cigars, listen to live music everywhere, hang out and talk to the locals and other travelers. Going to Cuba and not going here would be... More

We walked through this amazing valley with it's painted rock face, through the tobacco fields and watched the farmer's wife making cigars. It is a lovely area and well worth a visit. Vinales is a pretty little village with over 500 casa particulars. Go there.

We cycled through this his beautiful valley with mogotes or steep sided residual hills all over. It is beautiful. Most of the farms are producing tobacco that is air dried for the cigar industry. The scenery is beautiful and green. The valley is a karstic depression in Cuba and a UNESCO World heritage site. This valley is a must if... More

It's a geographic wonder. Hiking through the tobacco fields between mogotes reminded me of the Grand Canyon. Many friendly people, from the campesinos, to the villagers, all happy to direct and to help.

You can spend one week there without getting bored, because the nature is so beautiful and the people so relaxed that you forget to have a mobile, to have a mail address... were you come from. You can do hiking, horse riding, through the tobacco field, dirnk a mojito on a finca, meditating, walk go... More

Viñales is in my opinion the most green and picturesque region of Cuba. It is easy to go to this region by highway Havana-Pinar del Rio, road is in good condition and well-signed. The region is known for tobacco-production and there are lots of tobacco-farms can be seen along the road. The most remarkable sights of a region worth a... More

The view from Hotel Jasmines is well worth the cab ride up the hill. The colours and shapes of the valley are breathtaking.

Mayrita is a great chick, extremely hospitable, speaks great English if you can't speak any Spanish. She's happy to help out with whatever to make your stay better. She looked after me and my partner very well. We just wished we could've stayed longer in Vinales and with her, her cat Mizu, her yummy food (my partner highly recommends Mayrita's... More
