Cuba has amazing geology. You can find some very strange rock formations. For the bold, adventurous and skilled climber, western Cuba offers some of the most magnificent climbs. A quick two-hour ride from Havana will put climbers at the base of 1,000-foot-tall limestone crags in the Viñales, one of the top rock-climbing sites in the Caribbean. There are more than 60 routes and 100 pitches of climbing. When you make it to the top, you’ll be rewarded by the view of old Cuban houses, gigantic palm trees and mountainous outlines.
