What was supposed to be a guided four-hour 'hike' to the top of the mountain was more of a two-hour stroll in the foothills and valleys, with our guide on his mobile phone most of the time, in part setting up the next tourist trap opportunity. The countryside is stunning, the mogotes well worth seeing, the wild (and domestic) life... More

Why come to Vinales unless you wish to see the Parque Nacional Vinales ! Its really a working tobacco farm with limestone hills (with caves) to make it a postcard experience. Most would choose a horseback or hiking option to manoeuvre around the valley floor. Ask your casa owner or the tourist office for visiting the area. There are sunrise... More

I spent a 11 hour trip from Havana to Vinales. It included visiting Cigar making, Rum bottling, amazing scenery a huge wall showing pretty historic images done recently and a trip in a amazing cave finished off by having a boat trip through a flooded part. We worth the $59 dollars including lunch.

A beautiful valley. Just take the sunrise tour! You will be brought by horse to this the valley. There you walk in the dark and wait for the sun to rise. Very peaceful, very beautiful!

We stayed in this area of Cuba for two nights. On our first full day we took a 5 hour walking tour on the tobacco fields guided by "Douglas" who did an excellent job. Lots of great picture opportunities and the stop at a farm for local coffee, visit with the owners and workers as well as cigar rolling demo... More

Its great place to escape from the hustle & bustle of Havana. Lots of thing to do here. Horseriding, cycling, climbing, hiking and of course you need to visit the famous tabaco fields

I cycled through the valley, stopping at the usual attractions. I was taken away by the beautiful limestone Mogotes. If your in Cuba, and want a day trip or side trip, make sure to tour this place.

This is the wild part of Cuba. From Vinales, this ride goes around the mountain to a different valley. You will see the tobacco plantations, meet the farmers and discover an incredible variety of vegetation. The palm trees grow directly on the mountain cliffs. Fabulous photo ops of the red earth contrasting with the vegetation. You can even stop in... More

When in Vinales, don't miss a ride through the back country and fields on horseback (even if afraid of horses, as I am). At $5CUC an hour, its hard to beat the price, and it was great to get off the beaten path. Highly recommend this as well as the drinks at the vegetarian restaurant in Vinales - AMAZING, and... More

We went out to Vinales and spent a night there as part of our (very small) tour, and it was a very different experience from Havana. Even the drive out there and back was educational, you get a very different picture of agricultural Cuba out in the countryside. While in the Vinales area, we visited the "evolution mural", went through... More
