#1 of 101 in Baracoa
Villa Paradiso opens its doors to travellers looking for a wonderful vacation in the Baracoa region, staying at a cozy & welcoming home on a little hill kissed by the sea breeze and with an amazing view of the Miel Bay ("Honey Bay", the bay in Baracoa where the Miel/Honey river meets the sea). The house is only 6 blocks from Baracoa's vibrant downtown - yet up on the hill there's a relaxed countryside vibe. We have three bedrooms (different sizes & capacity 2 to 4 people) with private bathroom, air conditioning & fan, direct access to a terrace or balcony and to the rocks & plants garden (including 15 varieties of ferns from the region), all of it with a view of town and the sea that many locals consider to be among the best in Baracoa - take a look at the pictures! Your main host, Manuel de Jesús, is a former professor at Universidad de Oriente's Agricultural Sciences Department, where he lead the evaluation of education quality. His life partner, Roberto, works in the field of social justice and divides his time between Canada and Cuba. Both will be delighted to welcome you, offer you information about the region and suggestions/recommendations so you can make the most of your stay, whether you like Cuban cultural life, unblemished natural parks, beaches, rivers, hiking, cycling - or a mix of all them! We also offer breakfast and dinner upon request - traditional and creative Baracoan & Eastern Cuban cuisine, with options both for those who eat meat/seafood and those who are vegetarian or vegan. Tell us what you'd like! We welcome LGBTQI travellers! Please note: we have a small Havanese dog and a cat. We look forward to seeing you in Baracoa soon!

Roberto and Manuel (with help from Gladys, the cleaning lady, and Donnie the four legged, tail wagging welcome committee) were incredibly warm and helpful hosts. Their meals are excellent, the view from Villa Paradiso overlooking the town, the ocean and the mountains is superb. Roberto gave me names and addresses of local painters, suggestions of how to spend my days, organized taxi rides and tour guides, and was completely understanding when I had to leave earlier than planned due to the heavy rains. Roberto went over and above the role of the host by facilitating the purchase of a painting. We had interesting conversations about politics, Cuba, refugees. This is a man who cares deeply about the wellness and happiness of all people, especially his guests and those less fortunate. The frogs sang dramatic love songs at night, answered by the roosters, so I would suggest having a pair of ear plugs and a sense of humour on hand. After all, frogs, roosters and a deluge of rain all make for good travel stories, as do amazing hosts.

If you want to visit Baracoa and want the best accommodation look no further. Nothing can compete with Villa Paradiso! views, food, hospitality, cleanliness, tips, owners. Despite the fact that Baracoa is difficult to access, it is definitely worth a trip (100% must). Incomparable beauty of nature, rivers, hills, vegetation, beaches. But stay at least a week because it offers so many activities that you will be sorry if you stay less. I guarantee that you will rarely experience such beautiful nature and authenticity anywhere in the world. If you want to experience the most that Cuba has to offer, don't miss Baracoa. We were privileged to be guests of Villa Paradiso. Till next time

Manuel and Roberto are the hosts of Villa Paradiso. Together with Gladys, they will make your visit memorable. The house itself is beautiful, the rooms are very nicely decorated, clean, and well equipped (small fridge). Breakfasts are delicious and plentiful. If you arrange for dinner, you will not be disappointed. Best of all, Roberto and Manuel can help to organize excursions - arranging for a taxi if you need one, or a bike rental. And if you want a guide to help you get much more out of a trip to El Yunke or other nearby national parks, they can draw on a network of extremely knowledgeable and very nice specialists who can show you local flora and fauna. Thanks to Manuel and Roberto we enjoyed visits to El Yunke and the Duara river, the area near Yumuri (the park was closed due to COVID), and the park near Playa Blanca. We also visited a cacao plantation, and a Tato's restaurant at el Manglito beach. They also recommended restaurants in Baracoa. A few of these were run by creative and excellent chefs. It was our first trip to Cuba; we learned a lot about Baracoa and the country from our hosts. We loved our stay and hope to return.

Villa Paradiso offers the kind of curated local Cuban experience that travellers search for. Our host Roberto is a bird watcher, speaks English, Spanish and French fluently, and is appreciative and deeply respectful of Cubans. Manuel, his partner, is a Cuban agricultural specialist, who renovated their casa beautifully and is a really lovely person. Gladys keeps the house organized, warms up everything with her beautiful smile and her gardening skills, and she is learning English and French. The house is on a hill overlooking the town with spectacular sea views, breezy and open plan. The guest rooms are on the second floor, with views, and french doors, fans and curtains so you never feel shut in, but you can always enjoy your privacy. Each bedroom hs its own bathroom. There is a shared terrace with a beautiful view. Breakfast is fresh fruit, Manuel's special fruit smoothy, bread, butter, cheese, ham and jam, with coffee or tea. The internet works just fine. But the even bigger plus is that Roberto will help you work out your travel itinerary with restaurant suggestions, hikes, beaches, cacao, bee and organic farms to visit, and even bird watching excursions. The price of the rooms is very, very good value for money. Baracoa also offers great music and dancing at the Casa de Trova. Baracoa has many beaches, mountains, waterfalls and rivers to explore. We have visited most of Cuba and we recommend Baracoa. We have met so many lovely people here, we are planning to make it part of our annual retirement plan.
