Viñales, Cuba

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.
