Palenque de los Cimarrones, Vinales

3.2
#5 of 6 in Parks in Vinales
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. Add Palenque de los Cimarrones and other attractions to your Vinales trip itinerary using our Vinales driving holiday app .

  • Nestled in lush green, enchanting landscapes and a natural sleep. We were with our 12 pers. Group in the restaurant before the cave. A nice atmosphere, Strohbedecktes open restaurant, with live music and good food.
