The scenery here is absolutely stunning. It feels like you stepped one hundred years into the past, farmers still use oxes to plough their fields! If you go here you have to do a horseback riding tour for the day. Its only like $20 and can be booked through wherever you're staying. You ride through farmland, explore caves, go to... More

A pleasant days outing from Havana giving an appreciation of the countryside at this part of the island. You get the opportunity to visit a rum distillery (underwhelming) and a cigar farm which I found more interesting though a non-smoker. The valley offers good close-up views of cliffs including one which has a giant mural (a bit ordinary!). Nonetheless a... More

I arrived pretty spontaneous in Viñales which means I did not really inform myself before the arrival. The horseback-riding tour I think might be the best option to do the Valle which I did. I booked my tour over my casa in Viñales therefore I am still not quiet sure if it was an official tour BUT I am really... More

Just about one of the most beautiful views we have ever seen. We stayed here just 1 night as part of a tour and even though our hotel was very basic we all wanted to stay a couple of days longer. The view was so breathtaking and the area so peaceful that none of us wanted to leave. You can,t... More

It was here that the Guanajatabey Indians built their homes in caves which they hollowed out of the limestone mogotes. After the short walk that takes you down through the cave (narrow in places) you will eventually come to the underground river.Once here a boat will take you through the cave for about 400 m.The journey ends once you exit...

3 to 4 days to spend in Vinales is a must to enjoy and relax. Furthermore, it is the place where I had my best dinners in all of Cuba... I recommend the "Olivio" restaurant.

Interesting to see the tobacco production, farm land, limestone features in the landscape, underground river, etc. Overall day out was well worth the ~2 hour coach journey, but the rum distillery part of the trip was poor and a waste of time.

Beautiful land formations- lovely country-side. It was a nice 2 day excursion to see another part of Cuba outside of the city. Hotel options were minimal. Had a lovely dinner and lunch in the area.

A guide is the way to go for sure. Our guide, Sergio, amazing. He gave us tons of information on the area, we saw a Tabacco farm, how artisanal cigars are made, hiked up the hills and hat fresh natural mango juice at the top. It was a great day!
