Climbing in Cuba is Alive and Well MORE INFO >>>


The Cueva is a short distance from downtown Vinales. In fact, from the center of town it can be seen quite easily. A short walk or shorter bike ride is all it takes to arrive at the wonderfully overhanging and tufa/stalagtite covered wall.

The Cueva is southeast facing.

Getting There 

From the center of town, walk in the same direction as the Cueva. Turn left at the Finca de Raul. Buy some of his juice, fruit, or tobacco, and he'll show you the path to take to get to the wall.

Climbing Season

For the Mogote del Valle area.
