In Cuba’s farthest western province of Pinar del Río, the Viñales Valley is bounded by the sheer limestone cliffs of the unique small hills called mogotes, forest-capped and home to rare bird and plant species. The dramatic gradients, overhangs, and panoramic views across the valley — also famous for its tobacco farms — make Viñales a mecca for adventure-seeking rock-climbers, just a few hours’ drive from Havana.
