We were met by Rio's mother-in-law at the bus depot. Rio is Canadian and can't (due to Cuban laws) come to meet tourists at the bus depot but we were so happy to see a sign with our name on it because it was CRAZY at the bus depot with many many people yelling CASA!
After a short walk to the casa we were met by the most colorful casa you've ever seen! with a very nice room and bathroom to boot! So nice that my husband left his swim shorts and towel there :( Rio, if you could mail those home he'd really appreciate it!
We didn't eat at the casa as we really wanted to experience some of the restaurants in Vinales. But we did take Rio up on going to the Cayo Jutías. What an amazing beach! I was so happy to have a Canadian to talk to on the drive there and back!
We took in the pool and the stars when we got home. The perfect ending to a perfect day. It is a little more pricy than other casa's in Vinales but the hospitality makes up for it. Thanks Rio!
They also offered laundry service which we really needed badly!
