Solo adventure Vinales Cuba

Viñales one of my favorite places to stay. With the feel of a great community and always made to feel welcome. Good place to relax and to make base for a visit to Cayo Jutias and María la Gorda. There are plenty of casa particulars to choose from no need to book. And only 2 hours from Havana. 

The Viñales Valley a UNESCO World Heritage Site, in Pinar del Río province where mogotes, hills with rounded tops and steep slopes, contrast harmoniously with the flat surface of the valley. Can be found just a short walk from Viñales main street
