On our first visit to Cuba, we wanted to experience something other than just Havana. Vinales is very scenic and a nice break from the urban scene. The main attractions here are the mogotes (limestone hills) and tobacco growing. While we did a walking tour with a guide, you can also tour on horseback. The town of Vinales has a... More

This is a wonderful place to see the Cuban countryside. The views are spectacular and worth the trip out there.

A very unique landscape that is reminiscent of Vietnam or Kauai (if you've ever been) with a Cuban touch. I did not expect to see these types of geographical formations on an island in the Caribbean. You have to stop at a tobacco farm while you here and buy some cigars. My friends nabbed up most of mine. The ride... More

The mountains of Vinales are so amazing. I am from Pennsylvania originally, but we have no mountains that look like these. They are very steep with no gentle rise and the roads are extremely windy, this makes for awesome views and photo opportunities.

Vinales is a older city with hard working people that still harvest the land like in the 1800 - I think - I might have seen an older tractor. The people are nice, helpful and if you go on the tours, it's easier for them to explain the culture. The Tobacco Farms are great but each has it's own prices.

Great adventure, with a lovely friendly stuff. It dose not take more then half an hour since there are 4 passes and you speed through it, but it is pure fun, safe and the view is amazing.

It may be just me but I prefer adventure and action. Viñales was a standstill kind of town. Lots of tobacco plantations, fairly small town, generally quiet. I went here expecting to actually roll a cigar like promised but that didn't actually happen. It's a very quick visit but definitely not worth driving 3 hours from Havana for.

Havana is the soul, but Viñales is the heart of Cuba. Friendly locals, breathtaking views and amazing agricultural culture, it's an unforgettable experience and not to be missed!

This may have been the highlight. We went on a 5 hr. Horse ride with several stops along the way. We toured tobacco and coffee plantations. Learned how to roll a cigar. Bought fresh coffee beans from the fields and tasted fresh honey for local hives.
