The way it goes!!

Maybe U are asking yourself why I have called this page The Cuban Cinderella?
Well, here is the answer: At the beginning of last century, Pinar del Rio was forgotten by all the governments that had passed through power in Cuba throughout the first 60 years of the 20th century. This province was the poorest in the country until the coming of the revolution and thanks to the reanimation of its agriculture this fairytale has turned into a reality. Nowadays, it is one of the best places to go camping, relax, do some climbing on the Mogotes or find different opportunities to interact with Cuban landscapes.
