Casa : “Marilú y Nelson”, Trinidad (Cuba)

An address to recommend

A revelation was confirmed: in my travels, moments of grace, the most beautiful moments, the heart strokes still occur in small towns. While in large or capital cities, the magical moments are almost non-existent …

We arrived by car in Trinidad quite late, it was dark. It was to be almost 22h. We knocked on the doors of “casas particulares” (homestays), recommended by the Guide du Routard but everything was booked. One of the owners eventually redirect us towards a casa least known where it was possible that a room is available. And indeed, there was one room in “Marilú y Nelson.” Although we did not have the best rooms, we were exhausted by over 10h thus road no risk to play tough and this hour, it was almost a miracle to have found at a price more than reasonable (I do not remember the price, except it was not expensive). There was a larger room upstairs which looked directly onto the terrace and occupied by an Italian couple.
We were greeted warmly by the family that prepared us a dinner on the terrace. Rice, salads, fish, beans … the profusion gave me dizzy. I was really annoyed because the XXL mango juice was ample enough for me, I was not hungry. It was good, even though I had almost hit anything. (Given that Cuba is not the country where I ate the best abroad …).
A delight to come across this family. Smiling, helpful, kind …
Full cracked their little dog had fun playing with an iguana by pulling the string with which it was attached.
The next day, royal breakfast on the terrace.
In short, I recommend this address 🙂
Bref, I recommand this address 🙂
