Viñales travel guide

Viñales

Things to Do

Cuba Direct offers a number of excursions to help you explore the valley including a cycling and zipline tour and jeep safari. Our Tobacco Trail Tour takes you to the region's famed tobacco plantations where local experts will explain the secret to the perfect Cuban cigar. You'll also visit a cigar factory and cigar shop with plenty of time to pick up a few souvenirs.

Viñales is one of the best places in Cuba for bird watching. If you are very lucky you may even spot the Cuban hummingbird; barely the size of a bumble bee, it holds the record for smallest bird in the world.

One of our most popular excursions from Viñales is a day trip to the nearby paradise islands of Cayo Jutias and Cayo Levisa, both home to spectacular beaches.

In contrast to major cities such as Havana, life in Viñales moves at a languid pace. You’ll spend your days sipping rum with the locals in Central Square, dining traditionally with your local host, exploring the museums and caves, horse riding across the valley and learning to hand-roll cigars at tobacco farms.
