In Cuba, a ‘casa particular’ is what is otherwise known as a bed & breakfast or a guesthouse. Staying in a casa particular will let you experience the Cuban culture and way of life. You can also enjoy typical food and drinks. You can get to know the family, but only if you want to, because you’ll get your own key to the house and your room is fully independent. You can get to know more about the Cuban way of thinking and listen to interesting stories. I have an aunt, an uncle, a cousin and two neighbours who rent their houses in Viñales, but only since recently; their houses are very private, new, they are great and I want to help them in this way.

Casa Juan José & Cora
Casa Juan José & Cora is not located in the center of Viñales, but at the edge of town in an area that is known as El Palmar. It is about 10 or 15 minutes walking distance to the main town plaza.

The casa is very comfortable, both rooms have two double beds and private bathroom and breakfast can be provided every morning. Wifi can be switched on by request.

The casa is located at only seven walking minutes to the main town plaza. The casa is very clean, neat and you get your own rocking chairs on the porch that are so typical for Viñales.
