Viñales classic car day tour

Description

The Viñales Valley is Cuba’s most important “tobacco country” – but to emphasize this aspect, you must prove an area of such natural beauty that it is a UNESCO World Heritage Site. During this day excursion you will discover its mogote landscapes, enjoy a boat trip in the famous Indian cave and visit a cigar factory.

After pick-up, you’ll head west to Pinar del Rio province. The Viñales Valley is right in the heart of this rural backwater where sombrero-clad farmers are frequent sight. Think palm trees and tobacco plantations set against ‘mogotes’ – limestone hills that rise steeply from the valley floor. One, the Mogote Pita, is decorated with a huge mural depicting prehistoric scenes.

There’ll be a visit to the Indian Cave, where you’ll enjoy a boat ride along its underground river, which emerges through a crevice into a jungle.

You will have time to see a tobacco plantation and also a tobacco drying house where the leaves are fermented at the field just before the rolling process which you will also see at the farmers house.

We will have time for a lunch break and ader we will see the Vinales from a unique point offering a spectacular view you will not easy forget.
