Where you'll be

We´ll be more than 90 miles from Havana, in Pinar del Rio, in the westernmost of Cuban provinces. We will visit Viñales National Park, a World Cultural Landscape with excellent attractions: Los Jazmines Lookout, a tobacco farm, a coffee plantation and the beautiful Mural of Prehistory. You can include the Cave of the Indian on request, because the cave is usually full of tourists (it's extremely touristy) and its visit could cause long delays.

Outdoor activities carry risks, and you may be exposed to dangerous situations as part of this experience. Make sure you can participate safely given your abilities and the conditions (such as location, weather, and equipment).
