“Beautiful landscape”
4 of 5 bubbles Reviewed August 6, 2013

From Havana you'll need to spend approximately 2 hours on a bus to get to Viñales. My recommendation is that if you're more than one person - negotiate a price with a taxi and go by car. Having a driver who can take you from place to place is a luxury. The driver will also likely be able to help you find a good place to eat or maybe a casa particular where you can spend the night. It's a good idea to spend at least one night out there to get enough time to really enjoy the area. We visited some caves where you can take a boat ride inside. We also visited a tobacco plantation and a place with a great view of the area - great place for photos.

“Beauty I cannot and I will not forget”
5 of 5 bubbles Reviewed August 4, 2013

When you are in Cuba that is a paradise that you mustn't miss. Trully a heaven on earth. U should go on a daily horse riding trip and visit tabacco plantages as well as cave with a natural piscine. It is the best way to see wild and rural Cuba!:)

“So green!”
5 of 5 bubbles Reviewed July 24, 2013

The valley of Vinales is absolutely beautiful and the people are very nice! Our bus flipped on our way there and we had to visit the hospital as a precaution. The hospital was very depleted, it was scary.

“One of the most beautiful places i've ever visited”

Take a tour through the valley on horseback and visit the tobacco plantations and the caves. Ask through your casa and get them to organise a guide for you. Amazing scenery!!

“An expectacular view”
5 of 5 bubbles Reviewed July 20, 2013

It is an spectacular natural setting. You can climb the mogotes, horseback ride in between them or just sit back , relax and have your breath taken away obseving the views of ViNales. Also you can see how the Cuban cigars are rolled....
