This tour crosses 3 different valleys, two of them, unexplored by the tourism. There are some natural and artificial lakes that are used for the irrigation of the different fields and for fishing. We walk in these valleys, surrounding by the mogotes that will make us think in films like Avatar or Jurassic Park, where the tourist feels in a small paradise. In this area we can find farmers dedicated to different activities and it´s possible to exchange ideas with them.
Then we can make an small stop in a little farm where we can take a Creole coffee before continuing between the mango plantations and the sugar cane fields, we go up in a hill to arrive to a natural lookout to the Silent Valley and to the Sierra de los Órganos, in this place it is possible to drink a coconut milk enjoying the stunning vista of the place.
Then we descend in the Valley of the Silence, in this place only a couple of families still live, dedicated to the tobacco for more than 80 years, in one of this we can enjoy the hospitality of the Cuban farmers, we will make a pause to visit the tobacco barn, to learn about the rural architecture, the shelter against hurricanes, to drink a cup of coffee and to smoke a cigar that the farmer will roll us with his own hands.
