Stunning countryside, an absolute must visit destination for any trip to Cuba. Great views and scenery with plenty to do. Horseback tours, cigar making tours etc all in a beautiful setting. Nice and slow paced country lifestyle in what I guess is a more authentic Cuban atmosphere.

The valley is beautiful, it is actually very had to describe... I recommend you go for a tour by horse back but make sure you are not more than 3 (i.e. 4 with guide). Like that you can see more and take your time / time yourself. Also make sure you go for a long trip (6 hours) as they... More

Best part of Cuba, hands down. You'd be very silly indeed to visit this beautiful island and not stop in Vinaeles.

The interior of the Kaaba is just as interesting as the rest of the country. The hills are beautiful and green, I'm sorry I did not see the sunrise.

We did an overnighter to Vinales. It was worth a visit. Our itinerary was simple enough. Day 1: Got up in Havana, had breakfast and drove to Vinales. It isn't far. I think it was about two and half hours by rental car. Keep your eyes peeled on the highway for potholes and you'll be golden. And, don't stop for... More

Well viñales is hot but please don't let that deter you from going there and seeing the painted mural, and the weird formed mountains that look like don't know how to explain it. Please take a very good camera to take pictures there is also a hotel there but availability is hard to come by.

Very nice place to be with for nature experience. Tobacco farmers, caves, restaurants, etc. Typically a half-day to day trip.

I was a bit skeptic about making the trip from Havana to Vinales, but it was completely worth it. A very beautiful valley and worth the 3-4 hours it takes to get there from Havana.

This is a beautiful tropical destination with a very different feel from Havana. The people feel more hospitable and curious about tourists. Staying in a casa gives an authentic if a bit roughish experience of Cuban life. Definitely worth a visit with beautiful scenery and farms to see.
