Viñales day trip. 10 hours. 100cuc per person
Nestled in the Sierra de los Órganos mountain range, Viñales Valley is surrounded by limestone mogotes rising up to 300 meters (1,000 feet) high. This place is a cultural treasure, having remained largely unchanged over the past 100 years. Traditional agriculture methods are still used to harvest crops, especially tobacco, and small farms and villages house a diverse population.
After enjoying all the Viñales Valley has to offer, you will be taken to a tobacco farm tour and lesson in the traditional rolling of leaves to make Cuban cigars. You can also visit a local market and try Cuban rum. You may enjoy, if it is of your taste, horse riding trail around some of these farms and see how they live and work hard to make their living. A three-course lunch with beverages is provided so the visitors enjoy a typical Cuban meal, pork, chicken, white rice or rice and beans and the always welcomed 100% natural vegetables salad, all organic and home made. Followed by a visit to the Cueva del Indio, a small but beautiful cave with an underground river. A boat ride through the cave and a visit to the Prehistory Mural concludes the tour.
