"The Viñales valley is encircled by mountains and its landscape is interspersed with dramatic rocky outcrops. Traditional techniques are still in use for agricultural production, particularly of tobacco. The quality of this cultural landscape is enhanced by the vernacular architecture of its farms and villages, where a rich multi-ethnic society survives, illustrating the cultural development of the islands of the Caribbean, and of Cuba."

Located on the peninsula to western-most point of the province, it is separated from the rest of the territory by an isthmus where there are plains of white sand and the largest wetland area in Cuba. The original vegetation is conserved in this park and there is a rich variety of aquatic bird life, mollusks and reptiles. In a relatively small area there are more than a hundred lakes and the purest of silica sand deposits, the largest of their kind in the country. The extensive pine groves are indigenous to the region and the herbaceous stratum is the habitat for the riches fauna typical of these ecosystems.
Guanahacabibes is a lowland plain abundant in underground caverns, such as the Cueva de la Barca "Cave of the Boat", rich in bio-speleogical elements. There are evergreen forests, including mangroves, beaches with swampland vegetation, coastal cliffs and sandy coasts with sea grape vegetation, as well as fringes of mastic trees and small palms. There is also a large number of birds, butterflies, molluscs and insectivorous plants in this reserve.
