A trip to Viñales is a life-changing experience. The more time you spend in the area, the more you learn about Cuba, its flora and fauna, history and culture, customs and traditions, the way the locals live.
Some people think that Viñales is just another city with picturesque landscapes where the breathstealing karst formations called “mogotes” can be found. However, its true charm lies in the beauty of the limestone cliffs, located not far from the city, and the valley they hide from prying eyes. The pristine piece of land is home to a number of rare animal and plant species.
Rumor has it that the local forests are home to stunning water creatures that live in the forest waterfalls. It’s easy to believe the rumor has it right when you see these magnificent, straight-out-of-a-fairytale water cascades.
Viñales is one of those very few places where you feel at ease dealing with the locals. Visitors are often treated to rum and cane juice as well as local delights. The hospitality of the Cubans living in Viñales is yet another reason why you should pay a visit to the city and learn more about its folk.
