Having visited Vinales and the cave, as well as the beautiful valley with it's tobacco farms, purchasing cigars, and lunch for us and our guide, my wife and I arrived in Cienfuegos by Viazul, just after the Cadeca ( money exchange house ) closed, on April 3/2013. We had used up all of our cucs and didn't have enough to pay for the taxi from the bus station to Manolo's and Marta's. No problemo, they assured us. They took care of the fare and simply added it to our tab, thereby saving us from an embarrassing situation. The Cadeca is about thirty seconds from their home, so the next morning I was able to restock our supply of cucs. We had the first room around the side of the casa, which is very comfortable. The workmanship in the shower is superb, and there is no need to hurry, as the supply of hot water is sufficient. We actually watched TV for the only time, in this room, during our Cuban visit. There was a baseball game in progress, and baseball is the same in any language. Just when you think that Cuban cooking can't get any better, considering the tasty meals that we had prior to now, Marta offered up a supper that tantalized the taste buds, not to mention breakfast the next morning. The one disappointing thing about our stay here is that it was only one day. Should we re-visit Cienfuegos, we will book into the Casa de Manolo well in advance. This was our number 1 casa in Cuba.
Many thanks Manolo and Marta
