Whilst the mural may have started as a genuine piece of creativity, it actually looks pretty revolting. It may help the valley restaurant to attract a daily procession of tour buses and plenty of punters for lunch. Honestly, I wouldn't bother!

We went here during the Vinales Valley Bus tour.
The valley is really wonderful, with the magical "mogotes" everywhere, but the mural is incredibly poor.

You've to pay 5 CUC for seeing this "strange" painted wall, and then wait for about one hour for the next bus to pick you up for another destination.
We didn't tried the local restaurant too, since the prices were incredibily high for this area.

Avoid it if you can, just have a look of it from outside if you've a car of jump off the bus, take a shot, and jump on again.

There's really no need to pay the entrance fee.

Wow, how did they ever do this in prehistoric times on a large rock? Amazingly beautiful! Must see, pictures do not reflect it adequately.

3 pesos to get into the park and 3 pesos for the best Pina Coladas I have ever had, both totally worth it. The mural is massive and you can really get a close look at the texture of the rock it is painted on. There are also horseback riding opportunities and climbing to the top of the cliff.

The actual murals are not too fascinating, but the valley where they aree located is stunning. Make sure to get out of the car and walk around. Jurassic Park on Cuba! :)
