Caves in Cuba

Do you like exploring underground?

Gran Caverna de Santo Tomas - Saint Thomas Cave - Vinales - Cuba

Whether you just like a gentle stroll through some nice caves with well lit stalactites and even floor, or if you prefer to scramble through one of the largest cave systems in Cuba, Viñales has two very different styles of caves for you.

Cuevas del Indio

Indian Caves - Viñales

Cuevas del Indio - Indian Caves - Vinales - Cuba

The cave itself has artificial lights and concrete floor, so it's not too strenuous. My father managed it with no problem.

There are some nice stalactites and stalagmites to see, and some scary tales to hear from the guides. Quite nicely done.

At the end is a nice grass area, and a number of touristy souvenir stalls, but actually they are worth a quick glance. There is also a nice cafe on-site.


Gran Caverna de Santo Tomás

Saint Thomas Caves Vinales CubaYou are given a hard-hat and a lamp and escorted through one of the biggest cave system in Cuba.

For real caving, drive 15 kilometres west to the Gran Caverna de Santo Tomás. This is the biggest cave in Cuba. Basic tours are two hours and a guide is provided. Helmets and headlamps are provided, although you might want to bring a more powerful torch, if you have one. The cave is spectacular. The cave has 45 kilometres of galleries on eight levels.


Palenque-VinalesPalenque de los Cimerones

El Palenque de los Cimarrones is a restaurant (and Disco in the evenings) that is located in the mouth of a cave.

The restaurant is open for lunch, between midday and 4 pm with a Criollo menu.

There is a disco in the cave from Tuesday to Saturday, starting at 10.30 pm until very late! A crazy place!


Underground Swimming in CubaSwimming in the underground natural pool

There is a cave the National Park in Viñales which has an underground natural swimming pool. The water is clean (but pretty cold).
