What you'll do
Channel your inner 'crocodile dundee' (before he goes to New York!) as you spend time with the farmers and 'guajiros' on our family's tobacco farm, and explore the outer regions of Viñales. With one-way transport, accommodation, (most) food and (all) adventures included, just come along and enjoy! We'll horse ride through the picturesque valleys of Viñales to swim in hidden caves or lakes, drink locally made rum and coffee, sample a freshly made honey, and top it off with a handmade cigar, straight from our fields. We'll show you around the farm and talk to you about how each process works, and demonstrate the process of growing and harvesting tobacco and how we roll the cigars to sell to the government (or you!). Dinner today is included in your casa & you have a free evening. After breakfast we'll collect you in a horse & cart. Today we get totally off the beaten track, with a tour of Viñales (maybe the zipline? river? cave?) & the outer 'pueblos', before a home cooked late lunch/dinner in our family's very rural & humble home. This is completely untouched by tourism, so come with an open mind, a camera & a big appetite! On your last morning, you're up before the sun to hike to Los Acuaticos to see the sunrise over the three valleys. Prepare for a 40 minute upward hike in the dark (with torches), medium level of difficulty, but it's worth it!

Where you'll be
I'm Omar, founder of private tobacco farm in Viñales, a rural but now popular town in the west of Cuba. I have lived and worked here all my life, learning the tricks of the trade from my grandfathers, and now teaching the same to my children. With the influx of tourism to Cuba, our private business are booming but often visitors to the island only see the touristy facade. Together with my family, we want to show our visitors the real Cuba, the daily life of us 'guajiros', and that there is more to Cuba than just the typical convertible cars and the fallen down buildings in Havana. Here, in the countryside with me and my family, you will find the authentic Cuba. Brace yourself!

I always like to mention that Cuba is not a 'holiday', but rather an 'experience'. With me and my family, an 'experience' and 'adventure' is truly what you will get! Please, come with an open mind and a willingness to learn - because we will invite you in to the true spirit of the island!
