I believe the national pastime in Viñales is sitting on your stoop, in
a rocking chair, watching rural life go by. Thus, every residence in town is
equipped with a wide porch and at least two such chairs, painted to match the
house of course. It’s a seductively peaceful place, the silence only
interrupted by the occasional rooster squawk or horse hooves clamoring down the
dirt road. While many tourists bus in from Havana on a daytrip, it’s well worth
taking a few days to take in the scenery, tour a tobacco farm or two and (in between rains) catch a
golden sunset over the lush plantations.
