A must see for a trip to Cuba. Tobacco fields are quite a sight and the caves are fantastic for exploring.

Hiked around here for a day with a young lad from the town. Could do it on your own, but we wanted to get a sunrise in and without the guy to set up a horse and cart early in the dark hours, plus guide us up, we would have missed this. But definitely do this hike. Views of the... More

The Valle de Vinales is only a few hours from Havana by bus - and well worth the trip - which is in itself lovely. There are numerous casas in which to stay and don't worry if you do not have an advance booking. The bus is met by large numbers of casa owners who will make sure you have... More

The drive from Havana to Vinales is wonderful and takes you through small villages and beautiful landscapes. The mirador overlooking the valley is very beautiful. We stopped at a tocbacco plantation, which is also worth a stop. The village itself looks like a set of an old cowboy movie. It is almost too pretty to be real. But take a... More

I recommend making the journey by horse as it is an easy ride over easy path. The journey can take couple of hours but you can coordinate various stops with your guides. There is for example an stop you can make at an small cave, also another stop you can make at a place where he specialty are juices and... More

We booked a local guide to walk us through the valley for a couple of hours. His knowledge of the plants and trees and their use for medicinal purposes was brilliant. Well worth the investment.

We enjoyed the most amazing horse ride into the National Park. I was terrified - never having ridden before, but our guide - Giovanni - was superb. He assured me the horse was semi automatic ! and it was! The trek was so beautiful - chickens and piglets roaming the countryside. Beautiful scenery and so tranquil. We visited a small... More

I found the Valle de Vinales was a great destination to decompress after the chaos of Havana. We took the horseback tour through the valley etc. all of which was fun, but I found the most enjoyable part was simply sitting in the town square and watching life unfold.

Go on a walking or horseback tour through the valleys, and you'll get a chance to see some of the beautiful landscapes. You'll visit farmers along the way, maybe see a cave or two, and just take in some of picturesque surroundings that make Vinales so popular.

The Home Stay (Casa Boris y Mileidi) recomended 3 Hours Walk Tour by his son at CUC10. We walked through the Silent Valley with Cave, lake, lookout, plantation & Tobacco/Cigar House. The view is very nice and Boris is a good tour. Those agents at Vinales also offer Walking Tour at CUC15 for 3-4 hours which should be similar. People... More
