to say disappointing is an understatement.we came to cuba for sun and its lovely people,their genuine and modest approach to life,for which we admire this country for.luckily,we found this in all other casas we stayed throughout rest of cuba.wish we had found it in this casa as well.

I just returned home after an amazing week in Cuba. My last three nights were spent in wonderfully laid back La Boca near Trinidad, which was a 5-6 hour bus ride from Havana. Upon arrival at the Trinidad bus terminal, (to my pleasant surprise) a man with my name on a sign greeted my friend and me, and whisked us out of the crowd and into a taxi to our casa - Hostal Rancho Florida. The casa was located approximately 5K from the heart of Trinidad and a world away from the hustle and bustle. We were pleasantly surprised to find a tranquil, beach house right on the water. The entire casa was clean and tidy, and the gardens were well manicured. Our room had two single beds (which can be put together), TV, nice sized bathroom with a good shower AND hot water, and a small balcony facing the sea. There was a constant breeze during our stay, which would be needed in the summer time. We fell asleep to the sound of the lapping waves each night and woke to the smell of Eloy's scrumptious and filling breakfast (4 CUC).


Bikes were available to us each day for 3 CUC each, and we took advantage of this mode of transportation since it was a good way to see and enjoy the peninsula, Playa Ancon and a few of the small restaurants and bars in the area. Eloy cooked us a wonderful meal one night with fresh shrimp, beans, rice, home made french fries, salad and a special dessert prepared by his wife Sonia (8 CUC). Cold water, Coke and beer were always available in the frig (1.50 CUC).

We ate locally the other nights, and there was a great, little seaside restaurant called Grill Las Caletas located towards Playa Ancon at the fork in the road. You can't miss the large lobster sculpture in the front! We ate there twice and it was one of our best meals on the trip. Fresh fish dinner for 5 CUC.


Rancho Florida exceeded our expectations, and the entire experience from Eloy's hospitality to the view and the wonderful location made this our highlight of the entire Cuba trip. If traveling to Trinidad, this is the place to stay. You can book directly by calling 53 141 99 3535. (25-30 CUC) You won't be disappointed.
