Casa Villa Caricia in Vinales is a nice house, with 9 years of experience in the rent room, it´s located in the urban center of the town, and just two blocks far from main square. Villa Caricia opens its doors to you with a warm welcome offering you a natural juice in every season of the year. The architecture of the house allows you to sit at the big porch to enjoy the beauty of the Microcycas Calocoma known as Palma Corcho, a plant which is a living fossil existing in our locality, as well as the orchids hanging at the garden. The spacious living room, provided with ornamental plants, invites visitors to chat with the owners of the house tasting a nice cup of cuban coffee. The guests will stay in one of the two comfortable air-conditioned rooms with independent bathrooms and private entrance: one room has two double beds and the other one has one double bed and one single bed. At the spacious terrace you will be accompanied by an ancient “cuban pilón”, made of wood, a real heirloom, used to grind coffee and corn and a garden full of plants and flowers, place at which you can also smoke a cuban cigar sat at any of the comfortable rocking chairs or simply taste the delicious “mojito” prepared by señor Roque. At the house you can also have breakfast, lunch and dinner and we are pretty sure that you will never forget Señora Caricia´s delightful dishes. Other options that you can take are the horseback riding and walking tours all through the National Park of Viñales Valley, cycling tours, salsa lessons, massage, taxi service to move around town, or visit the beaches from the western most part of Cuba, parking service, among others, all guaranteed by Dr. Sergio son of the family.

Warm velcome from Sergio to this lovely place by Michael Bay (Stayed on Dec 25, 2018)
We enjoyed the hospitality from Sergio and his parents during our stay. The case is located <5 min walk from the main street, where you will walk by the Etecsa office on the way to the wifi area(Parque José Martí). For our onwards travel Sergio arrange our transportation from Vinales to Varadero for us. The place offer great value for the money and we can(family of 5) wholehearted recommend to stay with Sergio.
Vinales in compagnia di una simpaticissima famiglia by Desirée e Giancarlo (Stayed on Apr 28, 2018)
Il nostro viaggio a Vinales è stato caratterizzato, oltre che dalla meraviglia dei posti, dal piacere di aver conosciuto Sergio, Roque e Caricia! La casa è molto bella, pulita, ben curata! Caricia è un'ottima cuoca ed ogni sera ci ha preparato qualcosa di buono! Vivere 3 giorni con loro è stato come essere in famiglia, sono stati sempre disponibili e simpaticissimi! Casa consigliatissima!!
A nice place by Lydie & Eric (Stayed on May 22, 2017)
We enjoyed a lot our stay in Vinales : small village with many restaurants and casas but very pleasant and restful. Villa Caricia was a wonderful place, very quiet and confortable. We communicated a lot with Sergio's mother who was very friendly and helpful ; she was also a great cook ! We were there for 2 nights and wished we could have stayed longer. We felt good in that casa !
Good choice! by Piotr Beszczynski (Stayed on Feb 15, 2018)
Thanks for all the host family!
One of the many casas in the valley by francesco siracusa (Stayed on Jan 27, 2018)
The villa itself it's a very nice place with a great inner court full of plants. Room and bathroom were quite big and bed was comfortable. The thing that I did not like was the atmosphere during our stay. I felt that the hosts kept the relation with the guests very superficial with no real interest in us other than offering turistic services to pay. In other casas we shared living spaces with the hosts and they were interested in knowing about our life in Europe as much as we were interested in knowing about theirs. You do not find this here. In addition, we organized a horse-riding through the valley with them and the horses that they rented us were really in awful conditions (very thin and old, one wasn't even walking right). I said it to the owner of the casa, but nothing concrete came out of it. I asked him whether he could organize for us a taxi collectivo to go to Santa Lucia and the answer was to ask in the streets. Not very helpful, to say the least. Bathroom and room weren't cleaned once during our 3 nights stay. Overall, I am sorry to say that I do not feel like recommending this place.
Costumer response from : Sergio , Owner / Cuba
Good morning Francesco: I am the owner of Villa Caricia in Viñales. I have already read the review that you wrote on the web page bbinnvinales, which comment was already analyzed among the members of our family in order to give an answer to you. First of all, i am the person who welcomes every guest at their arrival to my homestay because i speak English, so i welcomed you, always explainning in details all the offers of the house, as well as the daily room service, including cleaning and victuals, always couting on your permission and petition; even knowing that the normal stay for guests is from two to three nights and most of the customers never ask for the room to be done. It is also a policy of the House not to enter to the rooms unless we are asked to do so and not to intrude once customers are using the common areas, such as the terrace, the porch, the living-room or the room itself, taking into consideration guets´time to relax and take a rest. Probably because of that is that you meant to be trated cursory, despite my parents, Roque and Caricia, do not speak English or any other foreign language, but indeed behaved very respectful all the time. Concerning the horse riding tour all through The National Park, this was arranged with an official guide. Never before we received a complain from previous guests towards the weigh and the age or horses. You did commented that to me but you never asked me to analyze the situation. I spoke with the guide, but i never assumed that you were complaining. Concernig the Trip to Santa Lucía, you only asked to me about the price for the a taxi and i told you that for just two people it would be more expensive, that was why i suggested to you to book for a shared taxi through the agencies on the main street, which would be cheaper. I do not really understand all this missunderstanding. I am very impressed because we talked one each other each day you spent at my house, i even asked to you how were you feeling and you never manifested to be unsatisfied. My parents, as well as me, keep a rule in our home: always demonstrate respect, discipline, organization, cleanness, tranquility and offer a good service to the guests. I just want to give thanks to you for the time you spent writing a comment related to my home, despite i never asked to you to do so and that is something you should have taken into consideration. I want to add that Villa Caricia will continue offering a service of quality to every guest which is something you can check on previous comments from other visitors. I wish to tell you that our House is open to receive you any other time you want to Visit Viñales and we will demonstrate what is written before. Always remember that human being has evolved thanks to communication. From my part i have always considered to treat uncompliances on a personnel way before publishing comments on such an important web page. Sincerely greatful. Dr. Sergio
