Group Tour to the UNESCO Preserved Vinales Valley Tour
Exploring Cuba’s stunning landscape at Viñales Valley, where you will get a taste of rural life in Cuba and absorb the totally unique scenery and enjoy a number of local sights.
Leaving Havana early in the morning, you will head west along the very quiet ‘autopista’ and gradually the hills emerge as you enter the western province of Pinar Del Rio famed throughout the world as the location of the very best tobacco plantations.
Visit the provincial capital of Pinar Del Rio City and see how cigars are made at a small local cigar factory** before continuing to Vinales. On arrival, you will stop at the viewpoint affording great photographic opportunities and then take a panoramic drive through the spectacular scenery of the Viñales Valley, and see the soaring limestone mountains known as ‘Mogotes’.
Enjoy a typical Cuban lunch in a countryside restaurant and there will be the opportunity for a subterranean boat ride through the limestone caves in the valley. Viñales Valley has one of the most unique landscapes in the world and is only a few hours’ drive from Havana; don’t miss the opportunity for a great day in rural Cuba.
