  • We bought one of cubatour trips to Viñales and was of the more pleasant. The shuttle went towards pinar del rio. In the city of pinar del rio, we visited the minifabrica where they do the guayavita of the pine forest, very rich Cuban rum. We bought a bottle. It is the only place where you can buy. HACI q If you like buy it there. then visit the viewpoint of the Valley after lunch and then later a walk inside the cave of the pirate boat. Ah we visited a house where dried tobacco leaves. You get to try a tobacco thread for them. It was a very nice visit. Very good to disconnect from havana and maybe they bring you back the same day.
