The Vinales Valley, about 200 km west from Havana city, is the most impressive part of the Pinar del Rio province.
The Vuelta Abajo region is known for the cultivation of high quality tobacco, this Cuban tobacco is considered by experts as the best tobacco in the world. Despite the many tourist visits the landscape is still unspoiled and has
not suffered from the tourist traffic. The "Mogotes", round hills, rock formations of lime stone covered with vegetation and palm trees are charateristic and impressive. The most photographed are the Mogote Dos Hermanas (The two sisters Mogote) at the West side of the Vinales Valley. The environment and the landscape is so unique that it's added to the UNESCO World Heritage list.
An invitation to a part of the unspoiled nature in the Cuban
Pinar del Rio province, a heaven for the eco tourist.
