Explore Viñales and return to Havana
After breakfast we will head out on a walk through the beautiful valley of Viñales. Despite becoming a popular tourist destination over the last decade, Viñales retains its laid-back, small-town feel. You will see labourers working the land to the stunning backdrop of the valley’s unique mogotes, children riding horses to school, farmers enjoying a cigar under the shade of an avocado tree and oxen slowly towing carts. We will stop at a tobacco farm where we will learn all about the tobacco-growing process, from seedling to cigar. We will have lunch in a paladar in Viñales, enjoying fresh organic produce from the valley’s fertile soil. After lunch we will transfer back to Havana. This evening we will have dinner in a lovely Havana restaurant. We will then head to FAC (Fabrica de Arte Cubano) for a night out at Cuba’s iconic interactive art space. FAC is a multi-faceted arts venue that, on first impression, wouldn’t look out of place in East London or Berlin if it weren’t for the very Cuban influences and clientele-entrance is included for this evening.
With an ever-rotating curation, no two weekends are the same at La Fabrica; expect to see photography exhibitions, improvised theatre, jazz ensembles, or electronic DJs. There are numerous indoor and outdoor areas to visit within the large venue, so depending on your tastes you are likely to find something to dance to!
