Vinales is a country town in Cuba. Its Mogote Mountains are Unesco World Heritage listed. I spent some time cycling, hiking, and horseback riding around the area.


Tobacco huts - hiking through the countryside, I came across several tobacco fields and their tobacco drying huts. Here, the cigar leaves are hung to dry. I also met one of the tobacco farmers.



Hiking around the countryside with two Spanish girls and Alexis, our Cuban guide.



Horseback riding - we stopped at the property of a Cuban farmer, who showed us how to handroll cigars.



The Mural de la Prehistoria - a 120 metre long painting on the side of a cliff depicting the theory of evolution. This was the backdrop of the camp ground where I stayed.



Climbing around rocks at a place I stopped at during my cycling.
