Enjoying the road, go slowly, without rush. Then open the window, so that between the fresh air which contrasts with moisture and heat of the island. And above all, let us open your eyes, we are not passing a short stop on the left, right where the tree line opens. There, on a small rise in the ground, are 2 restaurants. One big and touristy and another fighting to make its way in the daily flow of tourists. both are there for a clear reason: the view over the Valle de Viñales. It is weird that the restaurant has more customers, as the small one had 2 platforms where they have picnic tables where people can enjoy both the benefits and beauty of the view. The magic of the commissions to the guides, maybe. Just look at the platforms to see how the green prevails in harmonious balance with the blue sky, with amazing contrasts of light and shade at different times of the day, ranging from romantic misty sunrises to sunsets that are gold . An appetizer from the top of what awaits us in the Valley of Viñales, where time seems to stand still, and the peasants are owners of peace from the porches of their huts.
