About the tour

Hi Everyone

Vinales Tour: start at 7:30 am

I invite you to visit Vinales Valley, one of the most beautiful places in Cuba, that is considered the best place for planting tobacco. Vinales Valley is like nowhere else in the world. Giant limestone outcrops coated in thick vegetation, called mogotes, rise sheer above and a patchwork of small vegas, or tobacco plantations. It is also famouse for its caves.

Viñales is an agricultural area, where crops of fruit, vegetables, coffee and especially tobacco are grown by traditional methods. Fishing is also an important part of the area's economy.

Tourism centered on the Viñales Valley is developing, the area being protected by constitution since February 1976, and declared a national monument in October 1978. The Viñales Valley has been listed as a UNESCO World Heritage Site since November 1999,for the outstanding karst landscape and traditional agriculture as well as vernacular architecture, crafts and music.

Places we will visit.

1- Lookout point at Jazmines Hotel, for taking one of the best picture in Cuba.

2-A visit at Vinales town.

3-we will visit a farmer´s house where he will explain how the process of tobacco plantation is. And if you what you can buy some cigars if you want, this place is free. if you want there you can ride horse too.

4- We have a little tour inside Indian Cave, walking and by boat, that cost 5 cuc per person.

5-Then we usually have lunch at a nice restaurant that serves cuban food from the country, that cost 10 cuc per person, it is optional, you can bring your snack or go to another place. very delicious food.

6- Later we will stop at el mural the la prehistoria one of the biggest painting outdoor in the worl, the entrance is 3 cuc, but sometimes we stay outside and take pictures from there, as you wish.

7-Then we return home, before sunset, we leave you at your house or a place you want.

Note:

These tours could be in the car you rent or in the car I use to get for this, in both cases my job as tour guide is free. i usually go with professional drivers in classic cars.I always try to go in groups for having a better price for you, if not you will go alone with your friend.Besides I organize others tours by group to Varadero, las terrazas, Trinidad, Zapata swamp and Havana very lovely.

Important: If you cant go that day call me as soon as possible, dont wait that I get to your house of rent. Since I work with professional drivers that they schedule this tour for us.

This tour lasts about 11:30 hours

I also invite you to make one special tour riding a bike between two Havanas in three hours, that I organize here, that could be in your bike or the bike i suggest that you can rent to the goverment in a low price near the Capitol.

Have a good day yuniel

What's the price?

A guruwalk is a pay-what-you want walking tour, which means, it's completely free to book and join the group, but the 'guru' expects to be rewarded once the tour ends. Some people give 5, some people give 50, you choose the price.

Reservations in advance are mandatory because if the 'guru' doesn't see any bookings one day, she will not show up at the meeting point. Or if she has too many 'walkers' that day, won't allow you to join without the reservation. Booking is completely free, fast and easy. Book your guruwalk now!

Yuniel estuvo muy puntual y nos recogió en nuestra casa de la Habana, lo explica todo muy bien, y nos hizo el día muy divertido, nos llevó a comer a un restaurante que era espectacular, de las mejores comidas que probamos por Cuba. Muy recomendable!

Fuimos al tour con Rai , el conductor era cordial pero nos quedamos con ganas de aprender más cosas de la zona. La plantación de tabaco no nos gustó demasiado, el hombre que lo explicaba fue un maleducado que ni se levantó a saludar, solamente quería terminar rápido para que le dejásemos propina, cuando hicieron el puro igual, al final como nosotros no queríamos comprar puros y lo dijimos , intentaron despacharnos rápido en la explicación. La cueva del indio y el mural estuvieron bien. Comimos en el pueblo de viñales por decisión propia ya que lo normal es comer en un sitio al que te llevan ellos en medio del campo que vale 10 cuc por persona y llevando varios días en Cuba sabíamos que es bastante caro. Viñales es para aprovechar más de un día, tiene muchas actividades que hacer.
