We stayed at casa of Yadilis and Joel for 2 nights just after arrival to Cuba 1st of January, and it was our 1st experience staying in casas after 2 previous trips staying in 4-5 star hotels. But this time we decided to explore Cuba a bit deeper and it was worth trying, we enjoyed every moment!
We booked this casa well beforehand via e-mail email@example.com and re-confirmed prior to arrival. We’ve chosen it due to excellent reviews here on tripadvisor and can sign off the most of them.
Yadilis and Joel are very welcoming, helpful and hardworking people, keeping their house extremely clean. They both speak English. Joel gave us several really useful advices including a place to buy Viazul tickets at Terminal de Omnibus near Plaza de la Revolucion instead of going to Viazul station in Nuevo Vedado which is far from the city centre. And if you buy tickets at Terminal de Omnibus you can travel also from there, so thanks to Joel we saved an hour or two.
The breakfast was very rich and tasty (it was Joel’s turn to cook, he gave his wife some rest after NY celebration): fresh fruits, omelet with ham and tomatoes, wonderful puffy bread with butter, coffee, fresh juice or yogurt.
The location is perfect - only 2 blocks from Prado, close both from Malecon and Havana Vieja. However, Yadilis advised not to take any bags with us while walking in the evening, but that was probably overcautious, although we preferred to follow her advice :)
Thanks, Yadilis y Joel, we felt really welcomed at your wonderful casa!
