After 5 weeks Cuba, this is really a highly recommendable casa where we would have wished to stay one more week. Adrian and his family is very very friendly, welcoming and truly helpful. The food, prepared by adrians mother is outstanding and we were really looking forward to every breakfast or dinner we had there. We can recommend it to everyone who wants to have a look into real cuban daily life and is looking for a welcoming and relaxing stay.
