    Viñales Favorites

    After a nice walk among the mogotes and caves in the valley of Vinales, it is a good idea to spend a day or two in this intersting village along the road. Friendly people, good food in casa particular, quiet central avenue and always not far from the country side

  • Transfer from Habana

    Viñales Transportation

    From Habana, take a "transfer" from any large hotel , you get on a nice small, modern ,chineese Yutong bus. It will be the same price as Viazul but it is much easier and it will be part of a tour with a local guide; with stops in a tobacco farm and a rhum factory.

  • Horse riding

    Viñales Things to Do

    You can make a tour through the Vinales Valley on the back of a horse. We did a 4 hour tour (5 CUC per hour) and went to a cave with a small lake at the where you could swim.We also got an demonstration of making juice from sugar canes and making cigars.

    Pinar del Río Shopping

    Part of the bus tour includes a stop at one of the many Cuban Cigar factories. Once the were all seperate and competed fiercely with each other - now they are all owned by the Central Government and each factory produces every kind of Cigar made. One day they may roll Cohiba's the next Partagas the next ?? As you walk through the rolling shed the...

    Pinar del Río Favorites

    I only spent a short time in Pinar del Rio, but I was fascinated by all those little architectural details - the buildings need urgent renovation, but the former beauty is not lost yet.

    2.5 out of 5 starsHelpfulness

    Favorite thing: Playa on reachable distance from Viñales.
    Cayo Jutías is an island that is connected to the mainland with a constructed road over the shallow water.
    You have to pay 5 USD per person, this include a drink in the bar. That is okey I think.
    Some refreshments are sold on location, but I recommend that you bring your own refreshments and food.
    The bar man gladly guards your car for some remuneration.

    Fondest memory: We was lucky with sunny and calm weather. The guide book says that sometimes the waves can be high.

  • Exploring on foot

    Soroa Off The Beaten Path

    Most people seem to visit Soroa by coach as a day trip from Havana, visit the Orchid garden get a horse back ride up to the Miramar for the views & then have a meal by the river before they are off again. Soroa is a lovely place & worth staying for two days at the least. There are plenty of places to walk, either with a guide to show you the birds...

    Soroa Transportation

    We tried to book a seat on the Viazul Havana to Vinales bus that would have dropped us on the main road from what I could gather & the casa in Soroa was going to have a taxi waiting for us to take us the last few miles. Unfortunately the bus was full ( so book well in advance if you can) Our Casa owner in Havana (casa Pablo) ordered a very nice car...

  • Treks in the Biosphere Reserve

    Soroa Things to Do

    There are heaps of walks to be taken in the Reserve, many of them starting at Las Terrazas. It'll cost you US$3 to drive in (unless you are staying at Hotel Moka). There are many ruins in the hills - namely coffee plantations - which you can walk to, but make life easier and park/drive. The hills behind Moka rise to 560metres, those opposite are...


María la Gorda

  • The beach at María la Gorda

    María la Gorda Things to Do

    The beach is white and sandy, some meters from the seashore there is a 'line' with coral stones and shells along the beach. The molluscs shells are heavy, big and with hard and thick shell.(NB: This is a protected nature area and you must act accordingly. The corals in the sea are very fragile and are not to be 'picked'!)

  • The girl "Maria la Gorda"

    María la Gorda Favorites

    The coast is exposed for the winds and waves, see how the cliff has erodated.This part is called 'Las tetas de la Maria la Gorda' (The breast of Maria la Gorda) in honour of - as the legends tell - her swelling bosom.María was a beautiful girl from Venezuela that got hijacked by buckaneers. She followed them here and settled down. She waited while...

  • The road to West Cuba

    María la Gorda Transportation

    To come to María la Gorda you have to drive for a rather long time on a way that is sometimes with damages. But if you drive carefully it is no problem, the trafic is sparse and almost no cars.
