ITINERARY INSPIRATION

Departing from Havana you will join a small group tour to Vinales, stopping enroute at Cafeteria Las Barrigonas to visit a small tobacco plantation and cigar factory. Continuing to Vinales you will pass through the spectacular Sierra del Rosario mountains.
Situated within Parque Nacional de Vinales at the heart of the Valle de Vinales, Vinales is a small colonial town that’s been declared a Cuban National Monument.
The area is one of Cuba’s most attractive places to visit thanks to its beautiful landscapes. The terrain consists of dramatic limestone outcrops and hillsides called mogotes with lush rural plains and tobacco plantations.
To take in this scenery you will stop at Hotel Los Jasmines Lookout. Positioned at one of the highest points above the valley it’s a wonderful place to take photos.
In Vinales town highlights of your visit include the town’s main square, Plaza Mayor, and the Iglesia del Sagrado Corozon de Jesus church.

At Cueva del Indio we’ll then board a boat ride that travels through this cave system along the San Vicente River. The caves are illuminated and you can see stalactites and stalagmites, cave paintings and archaeological remains.

We use local guides and office staff to both maximise local employment opportunities and minimise carbon footprint. Local guides also ensure you benefit from the intimate knowledge, passion and culture of the country you’re visiting. Our guides are all highly qualified (most with university degrees) or equip with many years of experience and are paid above the standard wage.

We further encourage you to buy appropriate souvenirs and discourage the buying of anything wrongfully made or taken from the environment i.e. shells and endangered species products. Information on how you can be environmentally conscious, and travel responsibly will be made available in our Travellers Guides and provided during your travels by guides and staff.
