Vinales, Cuba

The town of Vinales was founded in 1607, and as it's name suggests, it started off life as a vineyard.
It's a small rural town with rows of one storey colonial homes while characteristic arcades front the buildings in the main shopping area.

We spotted plenty of old cars and horses and carts as we walked around the streets of Vinales.
It was a very colourful, relaxed experience.




















We spent quiet a bit of time relaxing in these lovely rocking chairs.
At the end of the day, we'd bring out our books and a beer and watch the sun set while the neighbours walked by. We may have tried a Cuban cigar as well! One was enough.

  1. What a beautiful place. I never expected the lovely colors of homes or the old cars. Life looks like it has slowed down there.

    1. Yes our time in Vinales was very laid back. But all of Cuba had a lively knack of living in the moment & taking life at a relaxed pace.

  4. The colors of the houses make me happy. How can you not smile at them. Around here, people would laugh....but I like them a lot.
