Paid for the room & breakfast through booking.com. Great option. Price was equal, more or less, to CUC in Cuba. Meant I did not have to carry around even more cash, CUC, with me.

My favourite casa particular. I will have to visit again!

First day, went on a guided walk with Boris, showed me the local area. I went for a swim in a lake, Boris showed me crops: coffee, sugar cane and mangoes. We visited a local tobacco farm, where you could buy honey, cigars and rum. Definitely buy some farmers' cigars for a cheap price and enjoy!

Second day I went horse back riding, my first time, with Boris' brother-in-law 'Dagui'. I went for a swim in another lake, chewed raw sugar cane, played dominoes with Dagui & a family friend and smoked a cigar dipped in honey. Best day ever?

Third day I hopped into a colectivo taxi organised by the house, a lovely Ford yank tank, and went to the Cayo Jutías beach. Met another solo travelling girl in the taxi. Had the best day and evening hanging out together.

The fourth day I hoped onto a bicycle the house had for me and gently rolled around the valleys.

That Saturday night there was a party outside in the main square and I was having a blast with some Spanish girls, even had some cheeky kisses, but when they left around midnight I was sad and I thought the night was over! Luckily, I ran into Boris' brother José. After I explained what happened he let me join a taxi and I went to a live Chacal concert outside in the valley with Boris, Dagui and friends. What luck. Thank you José!

That final Sunday, with one big resaca, Boris woke me up to see a cockfight (I had asked to see this, it's not for everyone). The valley hosts them and it's not illegal in Cuba. I then spent the afternoon and evening drinking beers with Boris, Dagui, family and friends in a bar, full of Cubans, listening to the best live local music. Boris said this was my Cuban family now. I was touched.

Boris, Dagui, Mileidi, Yariani, José y todo la familia are great people. Ask for what you want, but also go with the flow. The family can't always be with you, but they can always find you something to do.

¡Siempre en mi corazón!

Oliver

I only stayed in Vinales for 3 nights but I did not want to leave. I felt like there was so much more to see. It was such a gorgeous little village and Boris and Mileidi were the loveliest mother-son combo. My room was upstairs with a stunning view and own entrance and bathroom. The breakfasts filled me up for the day so I was only having one other meal. I went horseriding through Valle de Palmerito with Adrian, the cousin of Boris and I loved every minute of it. Boris was also really helpful for me practicing my Spanish. I felt really at home here and would've loved to have stayed longer. It was also spotlessly clean, cosy bed and air con. I couldn't have loved this casa more.

Enjoyed our stay here. We had a new room which had just been added to the second floor. Breakfast was available as an addition. Friendly hosts are able to arrange tours and onward transportation - we had a fabulous horse-riding tour with the hosts' cousin. A good quiet location away from the busy central street, but only a short walk away.

I've stayed in 5 casaes during my journey of Cuba. Vinales was my favourite city but Casa Boris y Mileidi was the worst one. It was arranged by the wonderful casa I had stayed so I trusted them. This casa was located near the main street but surrounded by muds and constructions. I think those caused by their family business. My room was big but smelled like the petroleum and thinner being stored outside the window. It seemed that was set up for temporary, only having a bed and a low teapoy, no hangers, no mirror, and the two small drawers were full of personal stuff such as cell phones, used lotion, condoms... the washroom as well.

The host Miledi was a good cook, the breakfasts were perfect. But I really can't figure out the reason, perhaps I didn't know Spanish, she was not that welcoming to me. No introductions, no smiles, no conversations... Every time I politely spoke to her with a smile, she just gave me a deadpan face, even no responses. The last day, when I asked for the bill after the breakfast, she rudely ordered me, "Pay now!" WTH! I know! That's why I asked for it! Of course, there's no thank you and eye-contact after getting the money.

The last thing I have to mention is that she arranged a taxi to Trinidad for me, 40 CUC. I switched 3 "taxis". The last one which was a lorry and everyone had a seat except me! Obviously I was an extra. It's completely different from what she had said.

Response from Boris L, Propietario at Casa Boris y Mileidi

NOT THE WORST CUSTOMERS BUT OF WHOM I NEVER WANTED TO HAVE You thought my house during your trip the worst but many tourists find it as the best of their trip for the good treatment family and hospitality. My house is located well close to the main street in a quiet neighborhood and in full development of new buildings where it is normal that in rainy season the streets are surrounded by mud. When you arrived at my house and the environment did not seem right, you could simply choose another site at your height; that is to say, in my house the clients are not forced to stay. The room is new, large, has a double bed, with modern air conditioning, very good lighting, recently remodeled and painted; with a private bathroom with hot and cold water 24 hours. It is true that we still need to put the hanger but you had a private bathroom with hair dryer, small hand towels and grades, mirror, hot and cold water 24 hours a day and soap. Regarding the two small drawers the things that were inside are personal objects that other tourists left in my house; where they have recently been returned to them. Thanks for appreciating the excellent food and breakfast. As for communication, I do not speak English but you can not speak Spanish either, my son Boris does speak English; The first thing is that, when I registered you in the book and put in your Chinese nationality (which is written in your passport) you reacted with an ugly and rude face to me; for my mistake. I told you there is no problem I cancel and put, Hong Kong. You say that you smile but you never said good morning when you got up in the morning and saw me in the kitchen preparing your breakfast, I was as if it were an object, or insignificant before your eyes. I always say to my clients hello, good morning, good afternoon, good night, have a good time, how was the day, thank you. Money for my family is not the most important thing, it's health. Correctly I asked him to pay the bill at that moment because he had to go out and do some shopping in the town. Regarding the taxi 40cuc per person is the official price Viñales-Trinidad in a collective taxi. I only asked this private agency for the service you requested, I am not to blame for what happened on your trip. The transport problem in Viñales is not my fault, if you found it wrong, I only have a bed and breakfast, and the location, for many is good, the house is 5 minutes from downtown, walking. Really your real annoyance with me was that I did not lower the price of the room when you bargained on arrival, that was your first expression of displeasure with your face and your smile disappeared when I said no. In summary you are of the people who consider themselves superior to the others. Our family wishes you a happy holiday, prosperity and a lot of health.
