While walking around, many Cuban horse riders will try to sell you a tour. I found it to be the cheapest to just negotiate the price with a rider on the streets. They all offer similar programs as the route they follow is quite standard. I paid 15 euro (4h, up and down, tobacco farm, photo spot etc) for a... More

The landscapes are lovely. It is a great contrast to the urbanity of Havana. The farms have a lot of local color, with friendly farmers and cowboys who will tell you all about the agriculture and livestock activities. Beautiful place to take a horse ride. You can also sample cigars at the source. This area seems to have been forgotten... More

Beautiful and unspoilt, this UNESCO world heritage area is a definite must see location. If you have a few days some time spent on a walking/cycling/riding tour is worthwhile as you will get to enjoy the natural environment close to and be able to see flowers, butterflies, birds, as well as getting into the farmed areas where you can see...

Viñales is a major tourist destination offering mainly hiking and rock climbing. Many tourists visit the 'Mural de la Prehistoria', but the valley is more beautiful than only that artificial painting. Tobacco and other crops are cultivated on the bottom of the valley, mostly by traditional agriculture techniques. Many caves dot the surrounding hillfaces (ex. Cueva del Indio is interesting)....

Via a tour organized by a company we had a great 5 hour horse back riding trip for €20. During this tour we visited a tabaco farm, a coffee farm and a cave. And we got to see the amazing nature. Also bikriding is a fun way of exploring the area.

This is the real Cuba!!! Organic Tobacco field, caves laid back town, and friendly people. The town of Vinales, is very touristy but offers travelers the real Cuba. This town doesn't play pretend for the tourist. What you see is what you get! Highly recommend coming here on the weekend and if you do, make sure you go to the... More

See it for the first time in the early morning mist. The palms and mogotes emerge slowly from the grey veil and the colors become more and more saturated until the piercing sun shoots spotlights onto emerald fields of tobacco. One of the most beautiful places I've seen. A must for photographers and artists. Very romantic. Great for nature lovers.... More

Vinales is a small town in the West of Cuba, which is a few hours from Havana. Great place to get away from the hustle and bustle of the capital and chill out for a few days. There is one main street which comprises many restaurants, some travel agencies and houses the main square where there is a church. Round... More

yes, it can be cheesy to ride the horse to the cigar farm, coffee plantation and the cave, especially when you need to pay 2 CUC extra for the guide in the cave but the valley, the swimming in the underground water, and watching the sunset while drinking coco loco with the coffee plantation view in front of you, is...
