A soft thrumming floats on the warm breeze. It’s hard to tell what it is at first, especially because you hear it before you see it. But when you do, your capacity for real life magic expands. Thousands of tiny dragonflies hover in the shade, zooming in and out of the shadows on an otherwise lazy afternoon. They are just some of the inhabitants that make this place so surreal. This is La Finca Agroecologica El Paraiso, set amongst the emerald hillsides of Viñales. 


There's so much more to explore in our Cuba Travel Guide.

How to get to La Finca Agroecologica El Paraiso

Not more than 10 minutes east from the center of Viñales, Calle Salvador Cisnero will take you through the small city center and finally uphill towards La Finca. The roads are very well marked and have signs that sprout up every few yards, making it easy to find. Don’t forget, hot spots aren’t a thing here so using your navigation app isn’t going to work. But the roads are so well designated, you don’t really even need a map. The main drag through Viñales is lined with casa particulares,  and I would recommend finding one and spending at least two days or so. There are plenty of outdoor activities like some of the world’s most sought after rock climbing, cycling, horseback riding, hiking to waterfalls and more. It’s definitely worth staying a few days.
