“The atmosphere in this part of Cuba is more tranquil and easy going than other parts of the Country – you’ll see the real Cuba where time seems to have stood still.”
The province of Pinar Del Rio lies west of Havana in a beautiful countryside setting. The sensation of living in a time warp has been enhanced by the great reliance on oxen and horses as the principal source of power and transport. It really is a stunning place to visit and very relaxing if you have spent a few hectic days sightseeing in Havana.
This area is famous for large limestone formations called ´Mogotes´, which date back to the pre-jurassic period only to be found in a few places in the world. Part of the region is conserved as an ecological biosphere that offers a different side to Cuba. The tobacco leaves rolled here are reputed to produce the best cigars in Cuba.
