Vinales Our next full day in Vinales started with a four hour walking tour through the famous valley. This was such a beautiful walk as we could take in the stunning limestone landscape (I did have some flashbacks to Laos and the hot air balloon incident). In addition to the gorgeous scenery we also spotted a hummingbird nest and lots of other flora and fauna. We also had the opportunity to try out some locally produced coffee and find out more about life in rural areas of Cuba.

The brightly coloured coffee beans. These have to be picked individually by hand before drying out in the sunshine ready for roasting. The smell was delicious. 

A Cuban hurricane shelter! What characteristics would make this suitable in winds over 74mph?

The beautiful Vinales landscape with the rust red soil and bright green tobacco growing under the protection of the limestone outcrop. 

One of the Coffee farmers we met in Vinales. 

Street market setting up in central Vinales. Some great souvenirs to buy here.
