VINALES

 

Descripción: Viñales

 

This village town is surprisingly spruce, with a fetching arcaded main street and lovely rustic scenes down the back lanes, the tranquility of the place and the friendliness of the local people are as seductive as the scenery, there are walks to do, horses to hire and tobacco farms and caves to visit.

 

Valley of Viñales, unquestionably, is one of the parts of Cuba that is best known internationally. UNESCO has declared the Valley of Viñales to be a part of world culture, and it´s also a national monument. famed for its mogotes, large limestone formations which date back to the Jurassic period, is one of the most beautiful spots in Cuba.

 

Its beauty and size, 132 square km (51 square miles) make it the most outstanding example of karst valleys in Cuba. This fertile area is surrounded by hills with vertical sides and rounded tops, called mogotes (pin-cushion hills). With 140 to 400 m (between 460 and 1312 feet) high, they are the only hills of this kind in Cuba. They contain many caves, some of them created by underground rivers (which are navigable in part), which form one of the most extensive cave systems in Latin America.

 

 It is surrounded by pin-cushion hills which contain many caves and underground rivers. The Los Jazmines and La Ermita Hotels, the Palenque de los Cimarrones (Runaway Slave Settlement), the Mural of Prehistory, Indio (Indian's) Cave, the Los Acuaticos Community, San Diego de los Baños and the town of Viñales are nearby.

The hundreds of casas particulares here are most alike.  We suggest some of the best in our list.
