About your host

We are Daily, Ruben, and Duarte, and we grew up in the Pinar del Río province, running through tobacco fields, filled with the aroma of fermented leaves and our grandparents' handmade cigars. We even spent time helping local farmers plant and harvest their tobacco. At university we trained in foreign languages and nature guide careers. Today, we work for the Viñales Valley World Heritage Site.
