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.

Good casa with nice hosts and good food: We spent two lovely days in Vinales. The Casa is really good located just two blocks o ra few hundred meters from main street where also the Vinales Bus stop is. Also the Casa itself is in a courtyard with a little yard so it is really quiet there (except for the coqs who compete every morning for the loudest cry so bring your earplugs =)) and also nice to have dinner, breakfast there. Roque and Caricia are really nice hosts. They don't know much english but with a little signing and some spanish vocabulary you will really get along with them. Also their son Sergio knows really good english and comes by every evening to assist in any matters. We booked a guided tour on horses with the help of Roque. The tour was good yet our guide didn`t know english so if you like some information on the countryside you should insist on an english speaking guide before. The food from Caricia was really delicious. We got a toasted sandwich, eggs and fresh fruits as well as coffee and fruit shake every morning (even the morning we left at 5:30am). Two times we had dinner (one time chicken and one pork) also really delicious and much to much food. Our room had air con and a fan as well as a nice separate bathroom. Only there was no glas before our windows so it was little hard to keep out the mosquitos but that is really the only thing we can critizise about casa Caricia. Otherwise we can really recommend this casa and would love to come back some time.
“THE HOUSE OF THE HAPPINESS”: UNFORGETTABLE HOUSE!!!!!!!! Home far away from home. We stayed three days, wonderful hosts Roque and Caricia, their son Doctor Sergio, speak excellent English, help us to get around the town and the amenities. comfortable rooms, clean, air condition , private bath. The food was exquisite, pork, chicken, fish, lobster ( we strongly recommend lobster).the fruits are great and organics, Sr Roque took some oranges, avocados and bananas from the yard trees. Mojitos are the best. If you visit Vinales, don't miss the wonderful experience to be at Villa Caricia. "The house of the happiness"
Great Choice!: Wir waren 3 Nächte in der Villa Caricia und haben uns hier sehr wohl gefühlt. Die Lage ist sehr zentral (der Ort ist ziemlich klein und besteht gefühlt nur aus Restaurants und Casas). Leider sprechen wir kein Spanisch, der Sohn der Gastgeber war jedoch abends da und so konnten wir offene Fragen mit ihm auf Englisch klären. Besonders toll in der Casa ist Caricias Essen. Wir hatten einen Abend Fisch und einen Abend Hähnchen und es ist beides sehr zu empfehlen. Direkt im Garten steht ein Avocadobaum mit den leckersten Avocados, die ich je gegessen habe.
A beautiful place to stay in Vinales: We stayed for 2 nights in Casa Villa Caricia. We were made very welcome and loved our stay in Vinales. The casa has a delightful garden where we saw lots of wildlife- especially the bee humming bird!
How was the food? : Wonderfu! We eat breakfast and dinner there both days and can highly recommend the food. We had lobster and then fish.
How was the room? : The room was comfy and had everything you could want.
Other Comments : You wont regret staying here.
Great casa with very nice hosts: We had a very pleasant stay in this Casa. Dr Sergio's parents were very nice, and they advised us all the touristic places near Vinales. We had dinner (fish and chicken) and breakfast at their casa, it was very tasty and plentiful. The appartement was clean and there was air conditioning which is very comfortable in this heat. We really recommend this casa.
Very nice casa and very helpful owners. They arrange a horse ride and help us find coffee to take back to France. How was the food?: We had a very nice diner at the casa (the fish was perfectly cooked).
Beautiful house, cool location, tasty food and comfortable rooms: Beautiful apartment just 3 minutes far from the main square of Vinales. The rooms are comfortable, with big king-size beds and working showers. Sergio's parents are such warm people and really willing to offer the best local experiences, such as horse-riding or walking in the surroundings. Breakfast and dinner were awesome!
Lovely casa and friendly people: We enjoyed our stay very much, despite the fact our Spanish is not good, nor is their English. Welcomed with beer and cigars, nice horse riding and cycling tour (sorry again for the cadena that broke twice) and delicious breakfast! Lovely patio at a quiet location, keep up the good work!
How was the food? : Very good and extensive. For dinner we had the best prepared fish in whole Cuba!
How was the room? : Cosy and clean!
LOVELY: La nostra casa particular preferita. Di tutte quelle in cui siamo stati ospiti, nei 20 giorni di Cuba, questa a stata di gran lunga la migliore. Pulita, tranquilla, silenziosa, vicina al centro. I proprietari, i genitori del Dr. Sergio e lo stesso dottore, sono persone fantastiche. Colazione con uova fresche, delle loro galline, cene gustate sotto al tranquillo portico. La mia compagna ha avuto la febbre e si sono messi a disposizione, per darci qualsiasi aiuto. Persone Veramente Fantastiche!!!
How was the food? : Colazione da 10+, ma anche la cena meritava. Il boccadillo al formaggio e prosciutto, il migliore che io abbia mangiato il 20 giorni.
How was the room? : Stanza con ingresso privato, pulita e comoda.
Other Comments : Vinales, mia rimasta nel cuore, per la varieta di attivita ed escursioni e per le notti tranquille e silenziose, immersi nella natura della Isla Grande.
The best casa in Vinales!: The casa is located in the center of Vinales, 100m away fromt he VIAZUL station. Its in the backyard so it is totally quiet and relaxing. Villa Carnicia is operated by a charming cuban family with its english speaking son, Dr. Sergio. Everybody is very service oriented and wants you to feel relaxed. Villa Carnicia is a better choice than any hotel!
How was the food? : The food was excellent. We had both (breakfast and dinner)for the three days we stayed here. We could choose each day a different meal with various side dishes. Everything was fresh, tasty and delicious.
How was the room? : We had a nice room with a seperate entrance and our own modern and clean bathroom. The room is furnished with two kingsize beds, a wardrobe, A/C and enough space to store the clothes. Other services of the family? The casa assists planning various excursions, e.g. bicycle tour or horse riding, and organizes that you get picked up directly at the casa. Cleaning service as daily change of towls and bedsheets is offered as well. Refreshments, e.g. beer, water, mojito, are always available.
Other Comments : If you come by bus, you get picked up by a member of the family at the bus station.
Wonderful people in Vinales: A great, safe place to stay in Vinales. The owners Caricia and Roque are wonderful hosts. They were very kind and friendly to our two teenage kids, who in turn bonded with Caricia and Roque. Caricia and Roque don't speak English, but their son is a medical doctor (otolaryngologist) at a paediatric hospital in Pinar del Rio and he is only a phone call away. Our taxi to Varadero arrived several hours late. Despite the fact that we had already checked out earlier in the day, they allowed us to leave our luggage there securely, use their washroom facilities any time and most importantly allowed us to stay at their premise late into the night while we awaited the arrival of our taxi. Sergio even helped find when the taxi was arriving and to provide them also with directions. One simply could not ask for more caring hosts and better hospitality.
How was the food? : We are a family of fish eaters. However I am surprised to say that the meal at the Casa was among the best we had in Cuba. We took the red snapper which was very flavourable. The soup was excellent, as was the other appetizers and the rice. Highly recommended to eat at the Casa. I can't stress how good this particular meal was for us.
How was the room? : The rooms were clean and well serviced. Overall good value for the money.
Amazing hosts: The room was nice and clean with a comfortable bed and a nice bathroom with hot shower. The hosts are beautiful people very welcoming and helpful. Dr Sergio showed us where the main attractions of Vinales are and helped us in getting some bikes to rent.
How was the food? : The food of Caricia was just amazing and in big quantity, served by her lovely husband. We had a very good lobster one evening then the chicken another day. Breakfast was good and big too.
Other Comments : These are honest and caring hosts, highly recommended!

A thoroughly enjoyable stay with a most friendly family: Sergio and his parents gave us a very warm welcome! It's s a real bonus when your time is limited to have such caring hosts who take the time to answer your questions and give you advice for the organisation of your days'activities.
How was the food? : Excellent! Thank you Caricia!
How was the room? : A little small but comfortable and air-conditionned.
Other Comments : Nice to be woken with the sound of interesting birds and be able to relax on the terrace.
