Short Stay Description
This Viñales package of minimum 2 days/1 night, can be attached to either the beginning or the end of our 15 day Original Cuba Tour, or as a stand alone tour. At 3 hours from Havana, a visit to the spectacular Viñales valley makes for a great escape from the hustle and bustle of Havana and a chance to see Cuba's most famous cigar producing region. Vinales offers stunning mountainous scenery, sprawling tobacco fields and friendly locals. You will be accompanied throughout by one of our tour guides who knows Viñales intimately and will introduce you to her/his friends and organise any of the available optional excursions for you. Accommodation is in local Bed & Breakfasts.

The community of Las Terrazas is a UNESCO world heritage site for it's preserved natural environment, and Soroa is a charming place for it's waterfall and well-maintained orchid garden. Upon reaching Vinales you will check in to your Bed & Breakfast accommodation. The guide will show you around Vinales and suggest activities for you to do together during your stay in Vinales. The guide will no doubt also offer to take you out at night to the local music venues and to meet his/her friends.
