Categories: Caves, Water & Amusement Parks, Historic Sites, Nature & Parks, Museums, Tourist Spots
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.

There's a great scene and shows on Saturday night, the place to be for visitors who want to enjoy the nightlife! Nicer than the cave club of Trinidad, which is completely underground. Count 1 or taxi from Viñales 2CUC, go on Saturday around 10 for the show!show original
