If you’re planning your next holiday to Cuba and are looking for an authentic experience to go with it, Viñales should be at the top of your list.
Declared as a UNESCO World Heritage Sight for its dramatic landscapes reminiscent of Jurassic Park, you’ll encounter a unique array of flora & fauna, wildlife, charm and tradition.
We at TheViñalesExperience pride ourselves on offering you immersive experiences in the life and culture of the real Cuba. We won’t just put you on a horse with a group of other tourists; you’ll be with a private local guide, playing dominoes with the cowboys, seeing the town from a horse & trap, learning how to cook black beans with Grandma, visiting private agro-ecological farms, rolling your own cigar… the list goes on.
Who are we?
TheViñalesExperience was born from the friendship and dream of three Cubans and one English, as a way to not only share and promote our mutual love for Cuba and Viñales, but also to support the local people and to help improve their quality of life.
As you can tell by our name, we are specialists in all things Viñales. We focus only on Viñales to be able to offer you the very best experiences you could have during your travels, rather than providing you with a half-hearted service but covering many places.
Our combined vision is to offer you an insight into the authentic life of the island. We have strong principals on the culture of our island and don’t want to see it go to waste or change, so join us in supporting Viñales and it’s locals – away from the beaten track.
What We Offer
Viñales in a Day: if you are short on time and can only visit us for the day, we’ve got an experience just for you.
Horse riding experiences: if you are staying in Viñales for a night or two, book your excursion of the Valleys in advance.
Horse and Trap experiences: see the sights of Viñales from the back of a horse and trap.
Casa particular: our authentic & comfortable casa will give you panoramic views of Viñales, with the best hosts you’ll ever meet.
We also work with a variety of casa particulares in Viñales and around the island. If you would like more information on these, please get in touch.
