Vad du kommer att göra
We will meet in Viñales, out of the baseball stadium, and from there we will start our tour of one of its UNESCO's World Heritage valley, the Valley of Palmarito. Due to its typical red mud paths, the best way to see it is on horseback, but don't worry, no horse riding experience is needed, the horses are quiet and know their way. While beholding the valley breathtaking landscape, we will visit a tobacco farm and learn from the farmers all about their work in the fields and the making of the famous Cuban cigars. On our journey we will discover and taste all the products which are typical to this region and, when the weather and the season allow it, we will reach a natural pool of spring water for a refreshing swim or, when that's not possible, we will ride amongst the valley's peculiar rock formations, called "mogotes", and admire their unique features. Finally we will have a late lunch in a cafeteria with a panoramic view of the whole valley. I will give you an insight on life in Cuba and hints for your vacation with advises on activities and places off the beaten tracks.
I'm Italian, I've been visiting Cuba since 2007 and I'm a resident since 2012. Viñales has been love at first sight and I moved here as soon as I could. Cuban countryside and its culture bewitched me and with my beloved horses I share my love for it with people who come and visit, adding to local guides knowledge the unique perspective of a stranger, a "Yuma", as a Cuban would say, who has gained an insight into this country and is able to translate not just words, but a real life experience. To know more about me, type "Marina Vatteroni" on your browser to see an Italian TV interview.

Var ni kommer att vara
The Valley of Viňales is a nature wonder and its breathtaking landscape worth a visit, but it also offers the chance to have a glimpse on one of the Cuban most fertile region. On a short term holiday people see the Capital and the beaches, but the heart of Cuban culture lies in its farmland. Cubans are not fisherman, nor craftsman, they are "guajiros". Cigars, rum and coffee are Cuba's pride and it is here that their tradition is kept alive.

Please note that the tour will actually take place from around 10.30am to 2.30pm, unfortunately is not possible overlapping experiences and I have one designed for guests coming from Havana by taxi, so I had to postpone this one in order to schedule them on the same day.
