General description: Vinales Valley

The Viñales Valley is a Valley located in the West part of Cuba, near the town of Viñales in the Pinar del Río province. It is a region with a long story with tobacco growing. In 1999, the cultural landscape of Viñales Valley was added on the official list of world heritage of UNESCO.

The Valley has a very rare geological feature throughout its mogotes and its mountainous mounds of limestone. These natural formations are full of caves, of which some have become a real touristic attraction, for example, the Cueva del Indio. The Viñales Valley has been formed millions of years ago, at a time where dinosaurs still reigned on Earth.

Currently, the region is covered with vegetation. The panoramic view offered to us by the Viñales Valley is breathtaking.

Take a guided walking tour to get an amazing view of the breathtaking geological formations of the area. It will also be a chance to learn about the history of the region and ask as many questions as you like! You will visit tobacco farms and discover how traditional farming methods are still used. Surrounded by Mogotes and green fields, you really feel like you are in another world. Photographs really can't do justice to this scenery. Read more
