    Western Cuba, a favorite destination for visitors interested in nature tourism, has the Viñales Valley, whose origin dates back to more than 300 million years ago, as an attraction par excellence to enjoy that tourist modality. According to experts, the Viñales Valley is an exceptional scenery, in which its unique nature and the preservation of the environment blend with the agricultural work of men and women, especially in tobacco fields.

    Covering an area of 132 square kilometers, the Viñales Valley is also the most outstanding exponent of a chalky valley in the Antilles, and is surrounded by "mogotes", which are hills with round tops and vertical slopes. According to experts, the valley's flora is closely linked to its ancient past, since it holds 17 endemic varieties that cannot be found anywhere on Earth, including the cork palm (Microcycas calocoma), which is considered a living fossil from the Jurassic period.,

    The region's fauna is highly endemic, including birds like the bee hummingbirds (Calypte helenae), Cuban trogons or "tocororos" (Priotelus temnurus), cartacubas (Todus multicolor), nightingales (Myadestes elisabeth) and Cuban grassquits (Tiaris canora).The town of Viñales, in the heart of the valley, is a typical agricultural settlement whose main street is flanked by galleries of columns and red-tiled houses. The socio-historical development of the region contains elements and sites that characterize the Cuban people with antecedents from aborigines, African slaves and peasants. The unique features of the area's natural landscape surround all this.In one of the "mogotes", known as "Dos Hermanas" (Two Sisters), visitors can enjoy one of the world's biggest outdoors natural paintings, the so-called Mural of Prehistory. ,

    The Mural of Prehistory, which is 120 meters high and 180 meters wide, was painted on the slope of the aforementioned hill. It is a singular representation of the biological evolution of Sierra de los Organos, also in western Pinar del Río province.Experts recall that in order to paint the mural, the vegetal layer on the slope of Dos Hermanas had to be removed, while a score of local residents participated in the dangerous artistic work under the guidance of Cuban Professor Leovigildo González (deceased).

    The passage of time has failed to erase this breathtaking work of art, which attracts thousands of visitors every year, who come to enjoy the images of the plesiosaurus and the megalonus rodens, painted with singular ability on the hill's slope.
    In addition, the Viñales Valley has numerous caverns, among which Cueva del Indio (crossed by the San Vicente River), Cueva de San Miguel and Cueva de Santo Tomás stand out. The latter has been classified among the largest caverns in Latin America, with more than 45 kilometers of galleries.,

    The Viñales Valley, which was declared World Heritage by the United Nations Educational, Scientific and Cultural Organization (UNESCO), is also Cuba's true Natural Monument and receives thousands of vacationers who want to be in direct contact with nature while they tour the Cuban archipelago.A large number of hotels in Pinar del Río province are in the Viñales Valley, where Los Jazmínes Hotel offers a wide range of options, including trails for ecotourism.Those trails are "The Road to the Mogotes", which begins at the hotel and leads to the depths of the valley, ending at the Mural of Prehistory; "Unsuspected Nature", in which travelers can enjoy the many species of birds inhabiting the region, and "The Secrets of the Underground World", in which Cueva de Santo Tomás stands out for its great archeological values.

    The hotel's amenities include air-conditioned rooms, sports facilities and outdoors activities.Another hotel is La Ermita, which offers the ecological tour "Wonders of Viñales", which consists of a walk to Sierra del Infierno to watch the local flora and fauna, especially birds, and take a close look of the cork palm.The hotel infrastructure of the Viñales Valley is complemented by the Rancho San Vicente Hotel, which is located near a spring of mineral-medicinal waters that became famous in the 19th century.

    Cayo Guillermo

    In past centuries, corsairs and pirates who plied the waters of the Old Bahamas Channel used to seek refuge here, on the cay's off the northern coast of Ciego de Avila Province. Now, the sound of the waves forms a peaceful backdrop, and there’s nothing more relaxing than watching the sun go down by the shore of the sea, soaking up the peace and quiet. Or you can explore the surrounding seabed, with its coral reef and many other species of marine life. Of all the islets in the Jardines del Rey Archipelago, Cayo Coco and Cayo Guillermo are particularly beautiful.

    Cayo Coco has 13.6 miles (22 kilometers) of fine white sandy beaches. Warm and safe, the water surrounding the cay has an average temperature of 82.4º F. (28º C.), which makes it ideal for swimming and diving. On land, the lush green vegetation is in a wide range of hues, the perfect antidote to the pressures of city life. It is the permanent or temporary home of countless endemic birds, including Roseate Flamingos (Phoenicopterus ruber), whose largest colony in Cuba is here. You can reach Cayo Coco by sea, air or land, for it is linked to the island of Cuba by a 21-mile- (34-kilometer-) long highway, half of which is a stone causeway that was built in 1989.

    Cayo Guillermo is a tiny bit of land that is the perfect place for getting away from the modern world. It has a beach a little over two miles (three and a half kilometers) long and is famous for its extensive sand dunes. Other cays and islets in the Jardines del Rey Archipelago, such as Cayo Paredón Grande (which has a lighthouse) and Cayo Romano , will also enchant you with their natural beauty and silence.

    In addition to these natural attractions, there are hotel and extrahotel infrastructures that will guarantee the success of your stay—whether for business or pleasure—in Cuba. The four- and five-star beach hotels blend with their surroundings; restaurants offer a wide variety of succulent international dishes that are given an extra tang by the sea breeze; and cabarets, party rooms, business facilities and other services integral to modern life are also available
