Day three of the Cuban Experience tour took us into some of the most scenic views I had the pleasure of seeing in Cuba. The Vinales valleys are deep, high, lush and never-ending.
The Vinales region is an approximately 2hr 30 mins drive from Havana and a flourishing expanse dotted with tobacco farms. You will get your best priced cigars directly from a farm owner and this one had a little shop selling them by the bundle.
Shock horror, I went to Cuba and didn’t buy any cigars – nope – not even as a souvenir. I just didn’t feel any desire to bring any home – I don’t smoke and I’m very happy with bits an pieces of arts and crafts and bagged during my trip. I suppose you could probably say cigar rolling is a craft since its all done by hand and in the cigar factories the staff have to unroll them and start again if they’re not rolled to correct width and length.
