What you'll do
Begin your day (or end) delving into the spirit of the Viñales terrain and the magical tropical Mogote mountains. The day will start by arriving at the farm of Valentin’s family (Familia de Crespo.) Here we will have an opportunity to meet and speak to his Papa and brothers and learn about daily farming life. Should you like to help, we will then finish preparing the horses for our tour. Our first stop is through the tranquil scenery of the Silent Valley which has a special view point of all Viñales. Then we continue into the heart of the Palmerito Valley where you will be cradled amongst the famous UNESCO national park of mountains and Mogotes. Here we will visit the tobacco farm of the The Miranda family, called 'La Riena de Valle' and discover their secrets and old traditions in the process of their coffee, rum and tobacco while enjoying the flavours of all. Here we can relax with the family for a traditional farm cooked meal under the beautiful vistas of the valley. LUNCH includes - Choice of Rice dish / Chicken, pork or beef / Grilled vegetables or fresh salad/ Cuban traditional chips / drink. Also available to enjoy fresh coconut and fresh Cuban cocktails. Our tour ends back at the town of Viñales.
We wanted to create Cuban Cowboy Tours to give our guests a unique and personal experience here in Viñales, Cuba. I fell in love with this place and your tour guide is a real local working Cowboy and guide for over 5 years here. Let us host you and have your soul sink into the Valleys of Viñales, meet the people and taste the flavours. There is nothing quite like your first experience here. The culture, farmers, people evoke a warmth on your senses and what better way than on horseback with your own personal Cowboy guide. Valentin comes from the salt of this soil; generations' old farming family. His passion is horses, and he knows the people and terrain like the back of his hand. Our goal is to give you an experience that lets you leave with a true sense of what makes this such a rich cultural place.
