Casa El Mor
Address: Calle Adela Azcuy 46 e/ Colon Y, Ciprian Valdes, Pinar del Rio, Cuba
My review: The owners of this casa, Maria & Moro, are by far the most welcoming, generous people we met on our trip to Cuba. The casa has a room with 2 double beds, private bath with hot water 24 hours per day, air conditioning, refrigerator with freezer, private entrance, private deck as well as a second deck where our meals were served. Maria & Moro provided us with information about this beautiful province in Cuba. They arranged a taxi for a trip to Vinales (the driver was our own private tour guide) and also transportation to the amazing Maria La Gorda, and then for our trip to Trinidad. They arranged casa's for us in Trinidad & Varadero. The meals were exceptional, breakfast included fresh juice, coffee/tea, fruit, bread & eggs; dinner included generous portions of rice, beans, salad, chicken, pork, beef or shrimp, tea/coffee, dessert if desired. We can't possibly thank Moro & Maria for their hospitality. We felt we were part of their family. This is a great casa to visit in the city of Pinar Del Rio.

Haydeé and Pepe
Calle segunda (2 de)
e/ San Juan y Nueva (Reparto Mijares)
Pinar del Rio City
Tel: +53 (082) 755285
casa particular located in a quiet alley from Calle San Juan
(on the way to Maria La Gorda) on walking distance from the
noisy city center. It is possible to park your car in a locked
garage at the other side of the street.
Almost the whole first floor is reserved for guests with:
for 2 persons, huge closet and view on the back yard
wide private bathroom with shower, toilet, wash stand and
private space to relax, sit, read when you prefer some privacy
... nevertheless you are always welcome downstairs too.
very relaxing porch with rockingchairs in front of the house
or at the backside.
All was very neat and clean in perfect shape.
The family hosts Haydeé and Pepe with a grownup son
and daughter, grandma is living next door. They are very kind,
loving, modest and quiet people.
Aswell breakfast as dinner was abundantly, well prepared and
had a great time with this family, it was cozy with a space
for privacy when you wishes for privacy. Pepe and his children
speak Spanish, grandma and Haydeë not but with hands
and feet we had a good conversation.
