    Wir wählten diese Casa Particular aus wegen der Nähe zum ASTA-Busbahnhof und der englisch sprechenden Gastgeberin. Gicela ist die netteste und hilfsbereiteste Gastgebrin in Kuba, die wir kennen lernen durften. Sie hat unsere Reise gerettet, in dem sie gemeinsam mit ihrem Mann ihren ganzen Tag geopfert hat uns die Reise zur Insel zu ermöglichen, als man uns kein Ticket für Bus/Fähre verkaufen wollte. Dafür sind wir ihr unendlich dankbar. --------- Die Räume sind geräumig, mit allem notwendigen ausgestattet. Das Frühstück ist gut. Ihr Restauranttipp ist Gold wert. Direkt um die Ecke bei Don PP konnten gemeinsam mit einheimischen gut und günstig essen. Der Botanische Garten ist nebenan und der Internetplatz ist nicht weit. Die Umgebung ist (wenn nicht gerade an einem Samstag ein Geburtstag in der Nachbarschaft gefeiert wird, sehr ruhig, trotzdem es nicht weit vom trubeligen Zentrum entfernt ist. Ihr kleiner Garten im Hinterhof enthält einige interesannte Pflanzen. Und einmal konnte ich sogar eine Echse auf einer Pflanze fotografieren. --------- Wir wählten daher diese Casa wieder für unsere Rückreise aus. Da unser Abflug erst in der Nacht los ging, durften wir unsere Koffer noch bei ihr unterstellen, nach dem wir bis 14.00 Uhr das Zimmer geräumt hatten.

    Gicela and her family were very welcoming and warm. It was a great trip made better by the helpful tips and the help from her network of Cuban friends. We did not have to worry about anything ! Our wishes were her command. The house was lovely, spacious and comfortable. What ever we wanted to do was easy ! Food, bank, taxi, trips to Trinidad, Giron, dancing , shows or just visiting the local attractions we just had to ask to receive the best in local knowledge. It was my wife’s birthday made very special with these great hosts. Would thoroughly recommend this Homestay.

    We had a wonderful time staying with Gicela and her family. Gicela speaks English very well and could not have been more helpful when it came to planning our time in Havana. Our room was very comfortable, with air conditioning and our own ensuite. Breakfast each morning was delicious, too. Thank you so much Gicela, for making us feel so much at home! We would happily recommend Gicela's home stay to anyone visiting Cuba.

    Christine and her husband were very friendly, with them we had some fabulous conversations some evenings in our patio. They loved our juices of different fruits at breakfast. In addition we organized their tour with a tour guide, to know different and beautiful places to the south until Trinidad returning to Havana by the north. Thanks for visiting us.
