  • Go here for tranquillity and scenery. It is wonderful to hike the trails in the Valley between the farms and plantations. Easy to walk, but maybe better to ride when the paths were sometimes muddy. You don't want to stay in a hotel, so there are lots of Casa Particula in the village and around. Accessibility is good so there is no need to book in advance.

  • We love spending the day in Vinales. Despite the distance from Havana, it was worth every minute! Nature is beautiful, we visited tobacco plantations, the houses of settlers, the beautiful mural of Mexican artist Diego Rivera of over 120 m high-too beautiful! Best pina colada I've taken on the trip was in this park. Super recommend!
