The Hotel La Ermita 3 *, is located at the top of a slope in the Viñales Valley, a site declared "Cultural Landscape of Humanity" by UNESCO.
Viñales belongs to the westernmost province of Cuba, Pinar del Río, the land where the famous Cuban tobacco is grown.
It is a cozy, colonial-style building with red tile roofs that blends in harmoniously with the landscape. It is surrounded by peculiar mountains with flat tops, known as "mogotes", unique of their kind in the country.
The hotel features 62 basic and comfortable rooms, some of them with balconies from where you can admire wonderful views of the Valley.
It also has a panoramic restaurant where food is often served accompanied of local musicians. There is a snack bar, a swimming pool, tennis courts, bicycle and horse rental.
From La Ermita you can book numerous activities and excursions to interesting places of the area: visits to the caves crossed by underground rivers (typical of the place), observation of flora and fauna, visits to peasant communities.
Nearby is also the Mural of Prehistory, paintings made in bright colors on the walls of a mogote, which represent the evolutionary process of life in the area.
Nature lovers will undoubtedly find here a magnificent place for both rest and exploration, with wonderful views of the mountains that surround it and just 1 km from the town of Viñales.
A charismatic hotel with very good value for money.
