Palenque de los Cimarrones, Vinales

2.0
#7 of 9 in Parks in Pinar del Rio Province
Cave Theme Park
A peculiar mix of history, natural beauty, reenactment and a restaurant, Palenque de los Cimarrones is a popular tourist stop off, set within a majestic cave. A refuge for runaway slaves through the centuries, the "Cueva de San Miguel" is nestled in the center of a mogote and now serves as a plantation slavery display. Take a 270 m (885.8 ft) walk through the murky caves to lines of several rustic cottages, decorated with the symbolic colors of Afro-Cuban Yoruba deities. A re-enacted cimmaronne folk dance will greet you at the entrance to the restaurant, where Cuban food and rum and guava cocktails are on offer. At the weekends, the place transforms into a popular nightclub. Put Palenque de los Cimarrones and other Vinales attractions into our Vinales vacation trip planner, and watch your holiday take shape.

  • We did not enter during the evening event but did walk in during the day and this place looks like a must do while in Vinales. A club within a cave can not be more awesome.  more »
  • No way to avoid the Cerberus guarding access to the path to not pay 3CUC per person to visit the cave (sic), while at the back no problem to take the path said. Home way disney with a group that is typical Native American... School that caters the groups express service but the menu is good and cheap, the staff is friendly. Too bad because the framework is splendid

  • It is very curious as you enter the rock and after passing through the tunnels appear at palenque, I really liked.

  • The most remarkable is the whimsical shapes of the rock on which the bar-restaurant is blanket. A walk along the road that part of the palenque to the right leads to a beautiful valley full of tobacco-growing
