square miles of majestic nature, you can almost sense the prehistoric creatures and
humans making their way across the enormous valley and around the “Mogotes” rising
dramatically from the ground, up to 1300 ft. high, dating back to when the ocean floor
gave way to giant limestone formations. The valley is home to one of the largest cave
systems in the Americas making these limestone formations navigable. In watery caves
there are still remnants of prehistoric man in the form of ancient cave drawings. The town
of Vinales, founded in 1607, frozen in time offers a window into Cuba’s charming rural
past. The Vinales Valley was declared an UNESCO World Heritage Site in the late 1990s
