    If you’re an outdoors person or just want to get away, this is the place. Because I enjoy the country side to reset my mind and relax, I enjoyed it here. I got to see the tobacco field which made me remember the stories my grandfather told me about picking tobacco. The food is great. I don’t think I’ve come across bad food when I’ve gone to Cuba to be honest. I felt very safe in all of Cuba, especially here. I wish I didn’t have to book through programs as an American because there are other places that are rich in history that we aren’t able to see

    I learned the most about Cuba during my trip to Vinñales. This is one of the major countrysides of Cuba. One of my favorite stops during my trip was Viñales. As I’ve gotten older I’ve realized I’m not a huge fan of big cities, the introverted side of me loves to be in the countryside, surrounded by nature, animals, & less people ?. Viñales is a small town, still reminiscent of the Taíno people. This is where you can find the traditional tobacco farms, & more easily support the local people. Like I had mentioned in my story, farmers can only keep & sell 10% of the cigars they make. The other 90% go to the government who then labels them and sells them for higher profit. Here you’re able to visit the tobacco farms, go horseback riding, and buy fresh coffee, honey, rum, and of course cigars.

    I really had a great time in Vinales. My friend and I booked an Airbnb experience to explore a plantation there. We left Havana early in the morning at 5am and got there at about 9/10am I believe. It was a very nice drive with scenic views. The road was a bit bumpy in few areas but that is about the only bad thing I encountered on my trip there. Everything else was great. The food was very delicious and they dish in big portions. We paid $50 for the Airbnb experience (which included horseback riding while touring the plantation, trying out their local and rare rum, they show you how they make their coffee and Cuban cigars, you get to sample the coffee and the cigar, and lunch is provided as well). My friend and I hired our main driver in Cuba and paid him over $120 (at discounted rate) for a round trip to Vinales, You can get to Vinales for much cheaper than that if you hop on the public bus that goes there daily, we simply did not want to deal with the hassle of hopping on the local bus or finding more people to go with us so we can split the bill between more people. I liked the feel of Vinales. It feels very country, slow paced and great positive energy. When next I go back to Cuba, I plan to spend at least a night or more in this town. There seems to be more to do there but I did not have enough time left in my trip.
    TWB: It’s Cuba, so you will feel at home.

    My fiancé and I took a day trip to Vinales. It was about a four hour drive from Havana. Vinales is very beautiful. We went horseback riding, toured a tobacco farm and toured a cave by boat. We bought our tour through Airbnb and our tour guide was great and very informative. I would definitely recommend visiting Vinales on your trip to Cuba.

    There are so many things to do in Viñales! When I went to Cuba this past May we took a day trip to Viñales from Havana. It was about a 3hr drive each way and totally worth it! We went on a tour of the Cueva del Indio (Indian Caves) for 5 CUC which includes a tour guide and a boat ride. Then we headed to a horse back tour through the coffee & tobacco fields where we learned about the different coffee beans and got to see how Cuban cigars are made first hand. (Also got to keep a fresh cigar at the end of the tour) Then ended our day at this beautiful restaurant (El Cuajani) a little outside the town center with a beautiful view of the mountains & green lands and amazing farm to table food! Overall it was a great day trip & I would recommend it!
