About 2 hours west of Havana lies the village of Vinales. It is surrounded by tobacco and coffee plantations, as well as steep rocks and jungle landscape. A tobacco farmer showed me how he rolled cigars out of the tobacco leaves. As a natural glue honey was used, a cigar in its most natural form. A hop-on hop-off bus makes exploring the area easy. Worthwhile is a huge rock wall with dinosaur paintings (Mural de la Prehistorica). Birds flew in the mountain peaks and it felt like Jurassic Park. Exciting was a boat trip in the stalactite cave Curva del Indio.
