Private Jeep Tour to the Viñales Valley – Request this excursion

Description

Many visitors with a stay of a few days in Havana, decide to leave the city walls for one day and head to the Viñales Valley. Probably the best choice you can make, and even more with your own private chauffeur and multilingual guide at the same time.

After a drive of about 2 hours, the landscape becomes greener. The relative plain turns into a nature sculpture of karst formations, called Mogotes; robust, capped mountains, sometimes almost square, which radiate a sort of kindness due to their corpulent form. They surround a lovely valley with rich, red earth and majestic palm trees. This is one of Cuba’s most fertile areas and where some of the world’s best tobacco is grown, harvested, dried and processed.

The tobacco plant reaches its full height between November and February. Once the harvest is over, other crops are planted such as malanga, yucca, corn etc until October.

In 1999, the Viñales Valley was designated a UNESCO World Heritage site. A voyage through this beautifully verdant land which has preserved traditional (country) life shows you why.

Points of interest include a visit to the “Casa del Veguero” (the Tobacco Farmer’s House), surrounded by tobacco plantations, provides a mini-education on the subject. The 120-meter tall replica of prehistoric paintings on a “mogote” and a boat trip on a river through a cave are fun and educational: they explain the evolution of life in the Sierra de los Órganos (mountain range) where the valley is located. There is an awe-inspiring panoramic view from the viewpoint close to Hotel Los Jazmines.
Since it is a private tour, there is enough flexibility to pay attention to your personal interest. Chat with the people, watch them playing dominoes on the central square, and observe the peaceful daily life of a rural society.

A homemade lunch will be served in a private restaurant (Paladar) in Viñales. This does not only guarantee a delicious meal with fresh ingredients from own garden, it also gives you better insight into the daily Cuban (farm) life.
