How many days should I spend in Viñales?

Well that depends... I thought I'd only stay a few days, but now I live here for part of the year!

There are lots of things to keep you occupied, both in the town and in the surrounding area. It's a lovely place to base your time in the region, (much nicer than Pinar del Rio - you can see that on a day trip).

We've pulled together some Suggested Itnieraries for Viñales, have a look, and see if anything inspires 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.
