The hotels do a brisk business with tour groups. It is essential that you have a reservation in advance.
Inexpensive -- There is a host of casas particulares in Viñales, which for some reason are called villas here. Most are on either the main street through town or on the street 1 block southeast and parallel to it. All charge between CUC$20 and CUC$25 per room and usually offer reasonably priced meal options. I recommend Casa Oscar Jaime Rodríguez, Adela Azcuy 43 (tel. 48/79-3381; firstname.lastname@example.org), with its friendly family and communal areas; Garden House, Salvador Cisneros 44 (tel. 48/79-3297), for its lovely garden and big porch; El Relojero, off Adela Azcuy on Orlando Nodarse 7 (tel. 48/69-5429), with its welcoming family; Casa Lumino and Heriberto, Calle Orlando Nodarse 3 (tel. 48/69-6952) for Lumino's great cooking; Villa El Cafetal, Adela Azcuy Norte Final s/n (tel. 52/23-9175), a lovely house run by Martha Martínez that sits at the trail head to the mogotes and is surrounded by a garden of coffee and fruit trees; and Villa Sol, behind the Banco Nacional (tel. 48/69-5591 or 52/83-2018; email@example.com), with one independent room.
