The Viñales Valley is the ideal place to contemplate and admire the beauty of the Cuban landscape. It is located in a small rural town in the province of Pinar del Río, only 25 km from the provincial capital and 178 km from Havana. It constitutes an exclusive and singular landscape where heights of metamorphic rocks are combined with karst mountains, known locally as "mogotes" and valleys of singular beauty. It is also known for having the best tobacco plantations in the world and the largest cave system in Cuba.
It takes about two and a half hours from Havana to enjoy Cuba’s most beautiful landscape, Viñales Valley, 80% of which is dedicated to tobacco production, providing the best leaves for the finest Cuban Cigars. With your tour guide, you will visit a typical private farmer’s house, where tobacco leaves are grown, and see how cigars are rolled. You can also visit Mural de la Prehistoria and have a nice boat ride in the underground waters of Cueva del Indio. Typical Cuban lunch will be served in the area.
