You will pass Hotel Los Jazmines on the hill, sitting on a perfect vantage point when you arrive at the Vinales Valley, and the bus normally stops there to let off passengers.

How To Get To Vinales

From Havana, you can take the Viazul bus to Vinales, which you can book online in advance. You can also book a private transfer, or even an organized day tour if you do not wish to stay the night!

From Varadero, you can also book a private transfer or an organized day trip, but this day trip will be very long and you need to get up really early!

In Cuba, you also have the option to book a taxi collectivo, a taxi you share with other travelers. That is a convenient and reasonable option; you pay in cash, and your hotel or casa in Havana or Varadero can help you do this!

Did you also know that the nationality that visits Cuba the most is Canadians? (And more and more Americans also find out they can legally travel to Cuba).

Yeah, and mostly, Canadians love to go to the pampering resorts in Varadero (which I totally get)!

But even if you are staying in the resort haven of Varadero, you can visit Vinales, Trinidad, and Havana with an organized tour!
