    Private Vehicle
    Havana - Vinales 4h 190km
    Stretch out and scan the scenery from the comfort of a private ride.

    Cigar Factory Tour
    Vinales
    Pinar del Rio is tobacco country. Fans of the ubiquitous Cuban cigar will be hard-pressed not to be impressed by this tour. See fields of green plants punctuated by thatch roof drying huts, then witness a demonstration of how the cured leaves are hand-rolled, cut and packaged. Prepare for the smell. The smell of tobacco is heady and headache-inducing. Buy a box to bring home to friends. Or smoke them all by yourself. (Breakfast)

See the mogotes - limestone hills - on the horizon. Stop at one of the many caves in the area, head inside and take a dip in the cool natural pools.

    Hiking
    Vinales
    The countryside around Vinales is lush, fertile and punctuated with mogotes - limestone "haystack" hills. Hire a guide or head off with some friends to explore the area. Bring water and wear sturdy shoes. You may stumble upon a cave with an underwater spring. Dive in and cool off.

    Cave Exploration

    En route to Maria la Gorda, opt to stop and tour the world-famous Robaina Tobacco Plantation.

    Cabo San Antonio and Roncali Lighthouse Excursion
    Maria la Gorda
    Cuba's westernmost tip benefits from the region's warm crystal-clear waters, with sea bottoms full of varied treasures - like reefs and shipwrecks. The peninsula was declared a Biosphere Reserved by UNESCO in 1987. Known for the famous Roncali Lighthouse marking Cuba's westernmost point in the region, this area is considered the last refuge of aboriginals during Spanish colonization. Learn more about the region's lore from pirates and old cannons to the treasures that lie on the bottom of the sea around peaceful Corrientes Cove.
