A Slice of Heaven

Viñales is a small town cradled within a national park, and is home to just a few thousand inhabitants. Surrounded by breathtaking scenery, Viñales is a leading example of Caribbean life.
World-famous Cuban Cigars are predominantly produced in… yep, you guessed it, Viñales! When we’re there it'll feel like the set of a film, WeRoaders on horseback, surrounded by stretches of tobacco plantations, and mixing with locals. Needless to say, not only will we see how the cigars are produced, but we’ll be able to try them (and it’s perfectly legally to bring a few back home, don’t worry!).

Today we’ll leave the mainland in search of the sea. This is our first day of total relaxation, and at just one hour from Viñales, starting it will be easy. On arrival we’ll be met with white sand beaches, azure water, and that sweet, sweet Caribbean breeze.



First thing’s first, we’ll need to seek out the nearest chiringuito to get some well-deserved Piña Coladas. We’ll sip them (straight out of the coconut of course) on the beach, and after we can lounge in the sun, swim in the sea, or take a long walk in search of Mangrove forests. The island is so picturesque, there will be no shortage of Instagram-worthy backdrops! In the evening we’ll head back to Viñales where we’ll experience the renowned cuban hospitality, and maybe, just maybe, we’ll even learn some Salsa moves!

Once we’re back on the dry land we’ll just have to wait for the right moment: a group picture at sunset on the Cuban seaside is a must do!

On the Road

The land around Trinidad is emblematic of Cuban prowess when it comes to shaping its rich landscape to reap all the possible rewards. While the north boasts tobacco plantations, the sugar plantations reign supreme here, with Manaca-Iznaga (famous for its bell tower) and Guáimaro (where you can find a Sugar Museum) stealing the show.


We’ll have the chance to walk up a colonial tower which dominates the whole valley, and where we’ll be sure to take a group selfie! Our next stop is Remedios, and more specifically Santa Clara, which is famously known for the battle where the dictator Batista was defeated by Ernesto Guevara (AKA El Che) and his revolutionary forces.



We’ll also have the chance to visit his mausoleum, where we’ll be able trace back all the key moments that shaped Cuba’s modern history.
