What you'll do

We will pick you up at your Airbnb/hotel and start the adventure! Once we get to Viñales we will go to a viewpoint and enjoy the view of the valley while listening to great Cuban music. Later, we will visit a tobacco farm, talk to the farmers, learn about the process of growing, drying and fermenting cigars and try one the way they do in the region, with honey! Afterward, we get on our horses and go to a coffee plantation where we will try the local rum, honey, and coffee and learn firsthand about these processes from the farmers. Now, it's time for lunch, you will taste some of the best food you will have in Cuba at a local's tiny paladar- it's plentiful, healthy and very traditional. In the afternoon we will go to the mural painting to the West of town, take a few pictures of the massive piece of art or even go rock climbing if you're feeling adventurous :) It's an entire day full of fun activities and bonding with locals. In Viñales you can buy products like tobacco, honey, rum, and coffee from the farmers and take home the taste of the Cuban countryside. If you wish to book a date that is not added, please contact me and we can work it out.

We spend less time horse back riding because we spend time on the farm but it was still amazing!! The horses are so much fun! The cave is like a boat ride! Can’t get in the water but still amazing views!

This experience was amazing I recommend to anyone visiting Havana. They picked us right outside the place we stayed at and dropped us off too. As soon as we got there we visited a cave, then drove down to learn about cigars and we were able to test one. We also learned about the coffee grinding process and how rum is made. Cool thing is that you’re able to try all of them! Then we took a horse ride around the town, which was one of my favorite parts of the trip. Then before leaving we stopped by a local restaurant and had lunch. This was so delicious that even until now I’m still craving their authentic Cuban rice!! The food was so good, the Mirador at the end had a beautiful view of the sunset and the whole town. This trip was so worth it trust me you will love it. The only downfall is the bus ride because it’s about a 3hour drive from Havana.

Поездка понравилась. Было интересно, не утомительно. Внимательно изучайте условия - есть дополнительная оплата водителю наличными (сразу в описании не заметили). Для тех кто знает английский на простом уровне, все равно будет все понятно.

It was a wonderful journey. Organization at the highest level. The guide told us a lot of interesting things about real life in Cuba, about culture, politics, and architecture. We went on a trip in a comfortable retro car, the driver is very good at driving. Ventless a very beautiful place, everyone who paceset Cuba needs to go to this amazing place.
