Viñales: Casa Grether Carlos 
by Casa Grether Carlos Casa Particular
‘Embellished by soaring pine trees and scattered with bulbous limestone cliffs that teeter like giant haystacks above the peaceful and well tended tobacco plantations. Parque National Viñales is one of Cuba’s most magnificent natural settings’
Lonely Planet Cuba 4th Edition

One of the best parts of Viñales is staying in a cute casa particular. Last time we went we stayed at the delightful Casa Grether Carlos, that we are delighted to recommend. Thanks to Pasquale and Gretel at Casa Grether Carlos for the superb pictures, which we have run below. These include fabulous pictures by Hagen Romel and others who show just why Viñales is one of Cuba’s best places to visit.

Viñales is a sleepy and delightful village surrounded by mogotes — fantastic limestone formations. within Viñales National Park. Gaujiros lovingly tend their plots of tobacco and maize. The setting resembles a Vietnamese or Chinese painting, especially in the early morning, when mists settle above the valley. At its heart is the eponymous village, Viñales (pop. 10,000), whose sleepy yesteryear charm is a draw unto itself. Viñales is 26km north of Pinar de Rio and 212 west of Havana, and was founded in 1875.
Yet even with hundreds of private casa particulares resonating to European accents the place does not lose its charm. This really is one of the premier destinations in Cuba.
Touristy it may be, but a boat ride through the Cuevas del Indio is worthwhile. To explore the tobacco fields, take an excursion to Finca Pinar San Luis, near San Juan de Mártinez (the town of Pinar del Río can be skipped); here living legend Alejandro Robaina gives tours of his famous finca. If you want some time in the beach then
