Valle de Viñales

The Valle de Viñales belongs to the Pinar del Rio region of Cuba and is maybe the most beautiful landscape I’ve seen on the island. I reached my hotel – the Los Jazmines on a hill outside of Viñales – without knowing anything about the area. And the view on the green valley with the mogotes was absolutely stunning.

Mogotes are isolated hills that kept standing when the rest of the karstic area was lowered by water floating underneath. Similar rock formations can be found in China. Places to visit in the area are different caves and the city of Viñales. The region is used to grow tobacco, coffee and manioc.
