There is so much to see and do in Cuba that sometimes people do not know where to start. Instead of spending time walking or driving between destinations, why not consider a horse ride? And where better to do it than in the Valley of Viñales? This place was declared by the UNESCO Cultural Landscape of Humanity and is, in my opinion, the most beautiful rural landscape in Cuba.
