The wonderful Viñales Valley lies in the lush splendor of the Pinar del Rio province, west of Havana. A UNESCO World Heritage Site, the region is dotted with tobacco ﬁelds and surrounded by hillsides of ‘Mogotes’, craggy shaped limestone formations that rise like giant cones from the earth. This is the area where the best Cuban cigars are produced. Experience rural Cuba, where the pace of life is exceptionally peaceful. Expect to see ox-carts in the ﬁelds, smell the fragrant leaves in the tobacco sheds, and take in colorful farms as children wave at you as you pass. A reminder of the beautiful simplicities in life.
