The tobacco plant reaches its full height between November and February. Once the harvest is over, other crops are planted such as malanga, yucca, corn etc until October.
A visit to the “Casa del Veguero” (the Tobacco Farmer’s House), surrounded by tobacco plantations, provides a mini-education on the subject.
In 1999, the Viñales Valley was designated a UNESCO World Heritage site. A voyage through this beautifully verdant land which has preserved traditional (country) life shows you why.
A 120-meter tall replica of prehistoric paintings on a “mogote” and a boat trip on a river through a cave are fun and educational: they explain the evolution of life in the Sierra de los Órganos (mountain range) where the valley is located. There is an awe-inspiring panoramic view from the viewpoint close to Hotel Los Jazmines.
Cuban lunch is served in a local restaurant.
