Relaxing and tranquil
Trying to find El Capitan was not too straightforward and I was wondering if I had made a mistake by being in La Boca instead of Trinidad - but when we got here all fears were one. This was such a beautiful and relaxing location and a great way to unwind after driving around Cuba. The access to the sea was a treat and the gardens a great place to just sit and watch the palms sway.

Beautiful location and facility. Breakfast and service were excellent. The seaside is a lava shelf so you have to careful getting in and out of the water, especially if there's a swell. Careful with the wifi. Your ETECSA card will continue running unless the owner logs you out. Yile, he owner, was very helpful and pleasant.

10/10 Exceptional

El Capitan is the best place we stayed at during our 2-week trip in Cuba. We originally booked 2 nights but ended up staying 4. The rooms are airy, elegant and spotless. Each room has an individual table on the terrace, where breakfast is served. Great ocean views. Rent a bike, have an evening drink at Ocean Terrace (La Boca) and you've a perfect Cuban vacation. Two warnings: (a) there are lots of mosquitoes around (at least in December) - get some repellent; (b) the hostal has direct access to the ocean but beware of sea urchins ... I am still removing spines from my foot two weeks later!

Great casa outside of Trinidad
A great stay in La Boca (Keep in mind this place is not in Trinidad but the taxi costs only 8-10CUC). Friendly staff and tidy rooms. We loved the coffee and the breakfast in general.

6/10 Good

Die Location liegt sehr schön, wenn auch etwas außerhalb. Die Gastfamilie verhält sich distanziert und ist zu offensichtlich kommerziell eingestellt. Wir hatten auf unserer Reise nettere Begegnungen.
