Private full day tour

Live one of natures most amazing spectacles. This day trip to Vinales is a great opportunity to appreciate how people live in the cuban country. Give yourself the chance to walk through the tobacco plantations, interact with the farmers, enjoy the local food and vistas, and take with you an unforgettable experience of everything what Vinales has to offer.


After arriving Vinales we will briefly explore the town, admire the breathless views from both "Los Jazmines" and "La Ermita" hotels.

You'll have the chance to check with your own eyes how farmers live and the crops they grow in the area. This is a wonderful opportunity to learn about the local tobacco production by visiting the "tobacco shreds" and seeing how farmers roll their own "tabaco".

We will have lunch at a farm where they serve authentic cuban food, very healthy and fresh, from farm to table!

After lunch, we will visit "La cueva del indio", the most famous of the three caves of Vinales for enjoying a boat trip through its amazing rock formations.

Then we will head to "Mural de la Prehistoria", a huge painting on a mountain which represents the theory of evolution.

Right before leaving Vinales we will visit a Bed&Breakfast (main business in town) to interact with a local family and learn about what they do.

A Recent Review of this tour

Wonderful trip to an organic farm with farm to table lunch. Plenty of tasty food, and farm tour excellent! Cigar rolling demo with local farmer was great. Cave tour and boat ride was a unique experience. One of my favorite parts was seeing the extensive mosaics in Havana. Dayron was super friendly and knowledgeable and met us right as we exited the port. It was a long drive to get to the farm (2 hours) but he kept us entertained with Cuban history and answered all our questions.
