We stayed several days in Adelaida's and Rolando's casa particular. They are a very friendly and hospitable couple and know a lot about the area. Rolando speaks english so it's easy to communicate. We toured the area of Santa Clara from their house, since it is a good central base to explore Remedios, Cayo Santa Maria, Cienfuegos etc. Adelaida is an excellent cook and really makes you feel at home. We liked it so much that we returned there on our way back after visiting Santiago de Cuba. Ever since we have stayed in touch and we really hope to go back there one day. Highly recommended !
