Vinales Geocache (Cuba)

Recommended Posts

Hi, does anyone know the GC code for the geocache in the Jardin Botanico de Vinales? I signed the book but I am unable to find it on geocaching.com Many thanks!

 

There's a Jardin Botanico de Vinales in Cuba but there doesn't seem to be a cache in it. What city, country are you talking about?

I somehow missed Cuba in the cache title. It looks like there are 4 caches in Vinales but none in that garden. The closest one is called Villa Maravila and the most recent log is a DNF. It's possible that you found an archived cache. There are no unknown or multi-caches nearby so it's most likely not a final for that cache type.

 

I'll be in Cuba in April and hope to find a cache or two there myself.

Is there a way of finding the names or GC codes of archieved caches? :blink: If you happen to visit the garden in April please let me know if that cache is still there. :smile: When I visited it was on the same table with seeds and the donation box.

There isn't a fool proof way of finding archived caches. You can try:

 

1) find a old cache in the same area

2) look at logs around the time you search

3) look at the finds of other caches that found that cache. It will show all of their finds, including archived caches

 

You can also look at the hidden caches by cache owners in the area and it will show caches they have hidden but were archived. Unfortunately a lot of caches in Cuba seem to be vacations caches with cache owners mostly from Germany. There are a couple of caches in that area from a CO that appears to be local. You might try sending them a message to see if they know of the archived cache.

 

Unfortunately I'll be working in Santa Clara all week but would otherwise love to spend some time in Vinales. It looks like a beautiful part of the country, but it's in the opposite direction from where I'll be traveling from Havana to Santa Clara.

I've been in the park at 26/01/2016 and at the end of the walk, the guide offert some fruits from a table. And at the table there was a cache-box. I was a little bit surprised, but I signed the book.

I've got that cache in Santa Clara on my watch list and noticed that you just recently logged it. I hope that it's still available by the time I get there.

 

I'm starting to wonder if that cache in the botanical garden was listed on one of the other geocaching sites. Do you remember seeing an official geocaching.com logo or if it had a GC code on the container (even if you don't remember what it was). I didn't see it on a couple of the alternate sites that I know of but the site that Garmin was running is no longer active. It's obvious that the cache is still being maintained so it's kind of surprising that there doesn't seem to be a listing for it.

I can't remember exactly if there was an offical GC-sign or not.

I watched the Photos i tooked there and I've made a photo from the table. You can see the box in the middle of the photo 24700266960_edbb051aec_b.jpgP1260387.jpg by Bilder Builder, auf Flickr
