Cabeza de la Vaca has some of the best lines in Vinales and some of the hardest routes in Cuba. In general the climbing is steep and physical, utilizing a plethora of Tufas and Stalacites dripping from the walls. Expect to get pumped; the big holds and tangled featues will test your stamina and capacity to think "tri-dimensionally".
Cabeza de la Vaca is in a national park and climbing is tolerated but not completely legal. At the time of writing (Jan 2013) there are some access issues over the climbing at this crag. It is not usually tolerated in the morning and early afternoon but after the park ranger goes home (at about 1500) the crag fills with all the local strong Cuban climbers and you can climb till dark. If you are unsure about whether the ranger is in situ or not just ask Raul Reyes at his farm and he will give you the low down on the day.
