We were taken to visit this site with a good guide who explained the importance of the area to the production of sugar cane and rum in Cuba.

Visit the viewpoints first, to appreciate the scale of the valley. We hired a car, and it's best to get there early as tour busses start to arrive from 11. There are zip-wire trips at the highest viewpoint, which amused our sons for half an...More
