Visiting Viñales Valley, the Garden of Cuba

There’s a long time since the last time I wrote a travel journal. Recently I read the travel journal I wrote during my inter-rail (in Portuguese), and it made me laugh a bit. Remembering some details that I have forgotten is almost like living the trip again. And to go back to travel journals, I will start by talking about Viñales!

Before I went to Cuba I thought about writing travel journals, but how about being prepared for that? And that’s what I did, during the whole trip I took notes not only about the places I visited, but also of my experiences.

Visiting Cienfuegos and Playa Girón for a few days for diving

From Viñales to Cienfuegos

When I planned my trip I didn’t even considered to stay in Cienfuegos. As you know, I am a proud hillbilly, therefore adding another city to my list of places to visit in Cuba made no sense to me. However, my destination would be Playa Girón, where I would dive. Though, due the lack of direct transportation from Viñales, the best option would really go via Cienfuegos, or a taxi colectivo (carpool taxi).
