What you'll do

We will leave from my house to visit a farm where the tobacco leaf is grown. There we will know the reality of the tobacco producers, their Cuban traditions and customs, you will learn how to make organic artisan tobacco with your own hands. Then we will ride through the Valle del Silencio to enjoy the nature that surrounds the Viñales National Park until we reach a coffee farm to learn about the process of the bean. We will visit a freshwater lake and white sand in which you can take a bath to refresh the intense heat and relax on the shore, where you can have cocktails, natural fruit juices and typical drinks of the region. On the same route you can see species of native flora and fauna. On their return, if they prefer, they can unsaddle the horses and feed them as thanks for having served as transportation.

Meet your host, Boris

Host on Airbnb since 2017
  • Identity verified
I am Boris, the son of a peasant family. I studied computer science but my passion is to ride horses. I really like nature, adventure, horse riding and enjoying the scenery. I love traditional Cuban music, I dance salsa and I love sharing vitamin R (Ron) with friends, that's why some friends call me the happy guajiro. I am the host of 4 experiences, this is the link airbnb.com/borisvinales and I want to offer, together with my cousin and co-host Darién, translator and excellent guide, another experience to publicize a beautiful natural landscape declared a World Heritage Site. We invite you to visit my family's farm where they will be taught how to roll up their own cigar and smoke it, naturally with a drink or two of rum for Cuban authenticity! Don't miss this adventure!
