Sightseeing Transfer "from Varadero to Viñales"
Sightseeing Transfer from Varadero to Viñales
from EUR 94.03
An early departure takes us to Matanzas city, Cuba?s Venice, where we will tour this pleasant colonial town overlooking Cuba?s largest bay. We continue along the coastal Vía Blanca road stopping at Bacunayagua Bridge, Cuba?s tallest and with fantastic views of the Yumurí Valley far below. You could try the fabulous Pina Colada?s here, freshly made with real local pineapples and if you want a big dash of rum! We head through the suburbs of Havana where we make a stop at Finca Vigía, the former Cuban home of the legendary writer and resident of Havana, Ernest Hemingway. The beautiful mansion house remains untouched since he left the house expecting to return! The tour covers the gardens and allows us to look into the rooms from outside. We continue to the village of Cojímar, the setting for Hemingway?s world famous book ?The Old Man and the Sea? and after a short orientation walk. We continue along the motorway where after approximately 60 minutes, we have lunch. After it, we will take a short detour to the Botanical Gardens at Soroa, where the largest collection of Orchids can be found in Latin America. With magnificent views of the rolling palm clad hills of the Sierra Del Rosario the gardens are beautiful and contain over 700 species of Orchid alone! We can also enjoy a short walk to the impressive Soroa waterfall, a tranquil setting in a sub-tropical valley. Continuing down the ?autopista? we will then take the road to Viñales and climb up into the mountains towards the spectacular Viñales Valley where we will drop you off at the accommodation of your choice.
