Taxis can be hired in Viñales, or called from your hotel. They tend to congregate around the central plaza. A cab to any of the local attractions costs between CUC$2 and CUC$6. You can hire a cab for a full-day trip to anywhere around the region for around CUC$30. If you'd rather rent a car, Transtur (tel. 48/79-6060) has an office downtown just off the central park, and Havanautos (tel. 48/79-6330) has an office diagonally opposite the Viñales Cupet gas station. Mopeds (motos) can now be rented from a place next to the Casa Don Tomás (tel. 48/79-6300) for CUC$23 a day. The Viñales Bus Tour has 18 stops and is a hop-on/hop-off service for CUC$5 a day.

This is a good region to bicycle around. The valley itself is almost perfectly flat and most of the major attractions can be reached along well-paved roads. You can rent bikes in pretty good shape for CUC$5 to CUC$10 per day from your casa particular or Cubanacán offers a 1-day guided biking tour in the valley for CUC$20 with lunch included. Horse riding can also be arranged through agencies for CUC$5 per person per hour.
