Cueva del Indio, Vinales

2.3
#3 of 7 in Nature in Pinar del Rio Province
View the many Taino petroglyphs at Cueva del Indio, a cave on the water along the jagged coastline. Step back to an era that likely took place before Columbus' discovery of the Americas, in an area where Taino Indians are thought to have conducted tribal meetings. During these ceremonies, experts postulate, the Taino would make the mysterious inscriptions and drawings on the cave walls. This cave has the largest number of petroglyphs along the coast. Wear appropriate shoes as the terrain on the trail leading to the site can be challenging. To visit Cueva del Indio on your trip to Vinales, use our Vinales online day trip planner .

  • The cave on foot or in boat is not great. Sure takes no 45 minutes as shown at checkout. For the cave by boat to sea is beautiful. At the end still souvenirs stalls.

  • 5 cuc per person to enter. If they do the bus tour is a stop! Linda cave with cave including boat ride

  • Waiting for 1 h 30 in a queue in the cave where it was cold and wet, without any explanation, before finally getting into a boat. The tower is shipped without a real explanation. Have not seen the marks left on the wall by the Indians... Once landed, no one had left tip to the driver. The child accompanying him did we finger... Charming! All this waiting for it?
