Apart from viewing the mural and having a pina colada at the small bar, there didn’t appear to be much else to do as our guide took us there by car for a brief visit.

Don't waste your time going to the site itself, you can see the whole thing perfectly fine from hundreds of meters away. Get a nice photo and zoom for later. Just keep going into the country side instead on bikes, and enjoy the views.

This mural is to be interpreted as the evolution of animals and man. It is creative in both the drawings, preservation from elements, and engineering how they got up to 120 meters high to create this mural.

A cliff face painted in crude modern murals of evolution. Bizarre. Only 3 CUCs. No coffee or snacks. Toilets ok You can hire horses and bikes, ride an ancient ox

Nothing amazing, you have to pay 3 CUCs but you can also see it from far without paying. They told us that if you are closer you can see the painting trace.

This is worth visiting but you do have to pay if you want to go up close. You can get a good view without paying and take good photos.

This is well worth experiencing as, an artist and some local farmers in 1960 painted one of the largest murals in the world on the side of a mountain (Mogotes) It is almost breathtaking and a special experience of creativity.

I took a day trip to the Prehistoric Mural. It was a 2 hour drive to Vinales from Havana. The mural was absolutely breathtaking. It is painted on natural rock formations and depicts the Natives of the land. It exudes artistry,talent and a rich history...More

It is 3 CUC (3 Euros) but even for this price it does not worth it.
