Package Itinerary

Viñales is a valley located in the western province of Pinar Del Rio. The beauty of its landscape can leave any tourist speechless. The different tones of green make the sight of the valley, one that you will never forget. Viñales can be visited on a day trip or an overnight tour. Here is the program for the day trip.

Stop for sightseeing and take pictures at the Mirador, one of the most beautiful Valleys in Cuba where you can observe the formation of hummocks, and drink a delicious piña colada.

VINALES VALLEY OF CUBA:

An official national park and by far the most visited location in Pinar del Río, the jewel in the province’s crown is the valley of Viñales, with its fantastically located accommodation, striking landscapes, and an atmosphere of complete serenity. Though only 25km north of Pinar del Río city, the valley feels very remote, with a lost-world quality that’s mainly due to the unique mogotes, the boulder-like hills that look as if they’ve dropped from the sky onto the valley floor.

There is usually very little traffic on the road, and throughout the journey, there are multiple views that are worthy of making beautiful photographs. If you are traveling in a private or a shared taxi, you are welcome to ask the driver to make a few brief stops along the way should you feel it necessary.

Just as the journey through Viñales Valley shows a different side to Cuba, the pace of life once you arrive in Viñales is also effectively the polar opposite of Havana. No more hustle and bustle, instead everything seems to be on a relaxed slow motion speed. Indeed, the pace of life and the accompanying culture of the Pinar del Río region is so distinct that it is often satirized and make the butt of jokes in other parts of Cuba.

It was designated not only due to the uniqueness of the landscape but also due to the farming methods. To this day traditional agricultural techniques are still in use, with horses, plows, and human hands still doing much of the work. On the one hand, this provides a "back-in-time" glimpse into old-fashioned farming methods. On the other hand, these methods have also been praised by some for being more eco-friendly than other modern farming practices.
