We came to Vinales for two weeks to rock climb over Christmas. We stayed at Oscar's casa for 12 nights and had a fantastic time. We were given a room on the top floor with a balcony that caught the evening sun, a great place to chill out in the rocking chairs with one of Oscar's homemade Mojitos. The food was fantastic throughout the 12 nights and Oscar and his wife made sure we never had the same meat 2 nights in a row. Lobster, pork, beef, chicken and various types of fish are all on the menu. A birthday cake was even produced for my special day.
Oscar will also organise taxis for your days out if required and knows a lot of people around town who can guide walks, horse rides or climbing. If you get the chance you can't do much better than staying with Oscar.
- Official Description (provided by the hotel):
- One Casa Particular in Viñales is exceptional. The house, amenities, and particularly the food are excellent, but, once again, it is the family of Oscar Jaime Rodriguez and Leyda Robaina Arteaga that become your hosts, friends, and protectors. The Jaimes and Robainas families envelope you you with love and joy. The compound of several houses include grandparents, brothers, sisters, nieces, nephews, and cousins. There are so many familly members that one must set aside time for daily Cuban ritual of shaking hands with each man and kissing all women and girls. ... more less
