One of the really awesome things you can do in Vinales is rent a bike and head out for a 20km ride out to various caves, waterfalls, etc. While I wish I could say that Vinales was completely flat, I would be lying like crazy. There are hills. It is hard. But look at the payoff – the surrounding beauty is insane! These mountains were created by caves collapsing and the surrounding earth heading up into the sky.
But don’t forget! If you are going to be doing anything hardcore, remember to get your holiday insurance before going out and being super adventurous!

Just because you can get enough of Vinales, Cuba. This horseback ride was almost life changing.

The landscape in Vinales, Cuba is some of the most breathtaking I have ever seen in my life. During our horseback ride through the Valle del Silencio we just tried to take it all in. STUNNING.
I had to showcase this one just because you really don’t see this every day… and yes, they really are that common.
Yeah yeah yeah, I’ll admit it. I totally paid the man to take his picture. Yes, he waltzes around town waiting for tourists to snap the picture. Yes, I couldn’t help myself. He has so much character.
Yes, it says $2 on the side of that machines… in Moneda Nacional – which is about $.08. I’ll take it!
