There are 17 caves recorded in Cuba however, many more are still unexplored now. Vinales is one of the lush valleys in the Sierra de los Organos. Situated in the Province of Pinar del Rio, Cuba, Vinales Valley has numerous caverns, among which Cueva del Indio (crossed by the San Vicente River), Cueva de San Miguel and Cueva de Santo Tomás. They are the subterranean passage of 45 Km of galleries in which one swim, dive and boat. Remnants of the Jurassic era, the ‘mogotes’, limestones cones and knolls provide the entrance of the caves. The stairs cut in the rocks plunge in darkness as one-steps in.   Inside a roof of stalagmites and stalactites creates a welcoming and magical atmosphere. The caves in Viñales Valley have sheltered many groups of people. The first the Mesolithic groups, the aboriginals Ciboneyes Preagroalfareros depended on nature’s reserve for survival and they later evolved as hunters, fisherman and farmers. The pictographic works on the cave walls testify of their presence. The caverns ‘El Palenque’ were also the refuge of the marooned slaves and a road of escape to freedom. The once hiding place of runaway slaves, it became that of the rebels, Che Guevaras Comrades during the Cuban revolution.
