The land in which the world's best tobacco is grown also offers you wonderful opportunities for scuba diving, hunting, fishing or simply relaxing and tanning at the beach.,
Since the 19th century, Havana residents have been drawn by the natural beauty of Vueltabajo, and they have flocked to Los Portales Cave, to San Diego de los Baños, to receive the benefits of its mineral-medicinal and thermal waters; and to the Viñales Valley, to gaze at its natural beauty.,
Pinar del Río is just 174 km (108 miles) from Havana. A good highway links the two cities. The architecture in its historic center is eclectic, and its low houses in gentle colors, whose porches seem to form an endless gallery, have great charm. On the outskirts of the city, modern buildings break its horizontal lines. ,
When visiting Pinar del Río's provincial capital, be sure to tour the Guayabita del Pinar Distillery, where the drink of the same name is still made by hand, following an age-old recipe; the Guash Palace, the Milanés Theater and the Rumayor Cabaret.,
Quiet, comfortable hotels have been built in some of the most beautiful spots in Pinar del Río, to facilitate your enjoyment of Nature. Cayo Levisa has a delightful, sunny beach, and the province also offer excellent opportunities for scuba diving, hunting and fishing.

Guayabita del Pinar
This factory produces the local liquor called “Guayabita del Pinar”, with a very unique taste. There are two types of “Guayabita del Pinar”, a dry one and a sweet one, but both of them are cane liquors distilled with a small local fruit know as “guayabita”. This liqueur has become a symbol of Pinar del Rio, so your visit to this province is not complete if you leave it without tasting it.
Review about Interesting Places: Guayabita del Pinar Rum Factory Casa GarayVery good
Guayabita del Pinar is the typical liquor of Pinar del Río Province. Nobody dares to classify it, for that reason they don't call it neither rum, nor Whiskey or any other name, so they denominate it as flavorful liquor of Vueltabajo that has its history, dry or sweet that has gone beyond the frontiers. Its origins get lost in the times of the colony, when some families of Spain settled down in the riverbanks of Cuyaguateje river began to cultivate tobacco in small parcels, since the end of the XVI century.
