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!).

What better way to start getting to know each other than with Cuban specialities at our welcome dinner? Arroz con pollo, some Ajiaco... and obviously, lots of cuba-libre to toast the beginning of our adventure.

To the Sea!
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!
