Red Earth Riding

Vinales on horseback

Exploring the bucolic countryside of Viñales by horse is one of my fondest memories of Cuba. I love that my horse – Paloma – blends right into the red tones of this fertile valley. Viñales is known as the place to grow Cuba’s world-famous tobacco, and the fields surrounding this town are a bounty of riches in that regard. Beans, yucca, herbs, squash and much more take to the earth here and provide the Cuban people with organic produce year round. It’s one relaxing place and the perfect spot to get back on that horse for a ride to the hills.
