General

A day tour from Havana will take you to the west side of the island, on a pleaseant two hours drive into Pinar del Río region. Vinales is a small twon in a valley surrounded by a low montain range. The whole area is dedicated to agriculture and the main crop is tobacco, whch harvest is between March and May.

The Sierra de los Organos mountain range has a remarkable scenery with unique mogotes (knolls), a web of caverns crossing underneath limestone mountains, and entire fields planted with the best tobacco in the world.  In 1999, the Viñales Valley was designated a UNESCO World Heritage site. A voyage through this beautifully verdant land which has preserved traditional (country) life, shows you why.

A 120-meter tall replica of prehistoric paintings on a “mogote” and a boat trip on a river through a cave are fun and educational: they explain the evolution of life in the Sierra de los Órganos (mountain range) where the valley is located.  There is an awe-inspiring panoramic view from the viewpoint at Hotel Los Jazmines. Vinales is the perfect location for taking amazing photographs, horseback riding or walking through the natural beauty of the region. This excursion has it all.

A visit to the “Guayabita del Pinar” brandy factory in Pinar del Río is also scheduled in the program. Lunch is served in a local restaurant.
