Located 115 miles west of Havana is the city of Pinar del Río, the capital of Pinar del Río Province. Pinar del Río is the 10th largest Cuban city with a population around 140,000. The area is known for tobacco plantations and cattle ranches. It is also the center of the cigar industry in Cuba. Time permitting you will want to tour the Alejandro Robaina Tobacco Plantation just south of the city. To the cigar aficionado, this is the home of the Vegas Robaina Cigar.
You will be staying at the Hotel Mirador de San Diego in Pinar del Río.
You will be Duck hunting Blue-Winged Teal, Shoveler, Bahamas Teal, Pintail, and Wigeon along the coastal marsh over decoys. You will be returning to the hotel for lunch each day. They will alternate morning and evening Duck hunts with Quail and Dove Hunts to keep the shooting active. It is not uncommon to shoot 6-8 boxes of shells while Dove hunting.
Dove and Quail will be hunted with pointer dogs.
