This is a whole day experience, we will start bring you in your Airbnb or hotel at 8 AM so we need your address. The trip is approximately 2h 30 minutes traveling to the last province in the west of Cuba, Pinar del Rio. On the way we will see several nice landscapes and we will learn a little bit of life in the countryside and you can asking anything that you want to know about Cuba. Lunch may take a while so some snacks will not go wrong. Once in Viñales we will visit the tobacco farm where we will see how is the process of the collection,driyng and confection of a Cuban cigar. Then we will take a horseback ride into the valley near the mogotes. Our lunch will be at a local restaurant with one of the best views of the valley enjoying an authentic Creole menu. Other places of interest are the Indian cave where we will take a boat ride inside it and the prehistoryc mural, in both places I will explain about the life of the native Cuban Indians (tickets not included, prices $5+$3 per person). Our last stop before returning to Havana will be at my favorite place of the excursion, the viewpoint of Viñales Valley, from where we can see all the places we visit and we will take some unforgettable photos of our experience. Note: solo travels pay $70 extra.
