Casa Tamargo is in a perfect location, on one of the cobbled streets of the old part of Trinidad, a couple of minutes' walk from the bus station, two houses down from the Cubatur office where you can arrange tours or buses to the beach, a block away from most of the major tourist sights and museums, and two blocks away in the other direction from the internet office and the bank. From the street you walk into a beautiful old colonial home, and on through to a shaded, tiled, and plant-filled courtyard. The guest rooms, quiet, spotlessly clean and with private bathrooms, are at the far end of the courtyard, with a rooftop terrace above them. The courtyard has chairs under a vine-covered trellis, where you can sit in the afternoon and drink your "cafe con leche" or maybe a cocktail or wine. The rooftop terrace is another place where you can enjoy refreshments and relax. But perfect as the casa is, it is the hosts, Felix and Matilde, that make this such a delightful place to stay. They are always smiling and friendly, and available to prepare food or snacks, to give tourist advice, or even to take the time to teach you how to say correctly in Spanish some sentence that you are stumbling over! Matilde is a marvellous cook, and after eating one meal there, why would you choose to eat anywhere else? The food is as varied as it can be in a country with limited food choices, and it is cooked and seasoned perfectly, without a lot of oil or fat. We also felt no pressure to eat at the casa, if we had preferred to go out to eat. An extra bonus is the fact that Matilde and Felix are very careful with their reservations. They confirm reservations by email and honour them, keeping your room available, even though some travellers who have reserved may not actually show up if they have been lured elsewhere by "jineteros" at the bus station or on the streets. We stayed with them for four nights and would have loved to stay longer. This is a casa that you MUST visit, and where you should stay for quite a while!
