About the tour

The excursion will take place at Valle Palmarito, which is part of the beautiful panorama that the municipality of Viñales offers us. In the interior of the Valley we will observe different types of crops and will know what is related to each one of them. We will visit the tobacco dryer, where a farmer will explain everything related to this coveted product, from its sowing, through the tobacco house where it is stored for a certain period to how it is prepared to smoke, and you will even be offered one free to try a real cigar. Then we will visit a country cafeteria where, from the hands of the natives, they will taste the honey and coffee that they harvest accompanied by a special type of rum from the province of Pinar del Río, which you will only find here, explaining everything related with the process and preparation of these three products. In that place you can have lunch a typical food of the area, take a juice of the natural fruits that our nature gives us or feel the flavor of the Caribbean in a traditional Cuban cocktail. Upon returning we will visit another trail and observe the variety of flora and fauna of our valley.

Buen tour para conocer la parte rural de esta zona y poder visitar los campos de cultivos y secaderos de tabaco.

El guía nunca se presentó, estuvimos 20 minutos esperándolo en el punto de encuentro, esto hizo que el único día que tuvímos en Viñales fuera un caos.

The guide never showed up, we spent 20 minutes waiting for him at the meeting point, this was a chaos for us since this was our only day in Viñales.

Carla, nuestra guía, ha estado espectacular, nos ha explicado todas las cosas con lujo de detalles y nos ha dado un precioso paseo a pie por la zona. En la finca nos explicaron la producción de tabaco, Ron, café y miel. Recomiendo el tour
