This is a country house, surrounded by nature and the beauty of Viñales' landscapes. However, it's nearby the town center (5 minutes on foot)
We are simple and welcoming country people, and we like to share that beauty with people with a fresh view.
There's a huge ancient Baobab tree (in Cuba we call it Ceiba tree) side by side with the house, and the district is named after it.
There are plenty of options for the travellers, like horse riding, bikes and walk tours.

The space

The bedroom is comfortable and has a private bathroom. The room has independent entrance, there is a porch with nice rocking chairs. You can also use the dining room and the kitchen. We have cold and hot water 24hours. There is a garden and a backyard with many fruit trees (mango, tangerine, guava, orange, coconut, mamey), we also have coffee ;)
We offer our guests to taste the fruits harvested in our organic backyard.

Guest access

Guests enjoy full access to the entire house and all the spaces, but the guest´s space has independent entrance for better privacy.

Interaction with guests

You will have total independence but, if you like, I will be there to assist you with everything you might need and advice you about the best options.

House is located 10 minutes walk from Vinales center. Having breakfast in Yakelin's garden was a pleasant way to start our day. Meals were delicious and generous: it's deffinitely worth to try her dinner. Yakelin was patient with our lack of Spanish and we were able to communicate with basic English. She organized taxi for us, did laundry and rented bikes (bikes were in really good condition). The room is ok, host is great :)

Yakelin was an amazing host, she is warm, friendly and attentive and always makes sure you have everything you need. Her food is incredibly tasty, we tried local food and it was nice but hers was outstandingly better, both breakfast and dinner were generously served. The area is full of houses but hers is a little away from all the fuss and it's more private and quiet, definitely worth the extra five minutes walk; you get an amazing view, and get to have breakfast on the rooftop while watching the mountains and the horses, it was really relaxing. She had recommendations for several activities in the area like a tour around Viñales, she arranged everything for us. Her little girl Alicia is super cute and spontaneous, we loved her. Yakelin is a really nice person and a great mom, and our overall experience was amazing, if I get a chance to go back to Viñales I will definitely go back to her house.

We had a wonderful stay in Yaklin house. We enjoyed so much Yaklin kindness and hospitality and her brother was very nice welcoming us and helping us with the information we needed. The food Yaklin cooked for us was the best we had in all Cuba, so test full and served so nice (much better that any restaurant). It served in their tropican garden - so beautiful and peaceful. The house is located at the edge of Viniales but only 10 minutes walking from the center, in the farm and that gave us such a good filling walking up with the sound on the nature and animals. Yaklon took us for a visit in a Tabaco farm at her nighbor and it was nice and interesting. I recomend staying at Yaklin place highly.

The house, scenery, and stay were perfect! Yakelin was superb as a host and went out of her way to make my stay comfortable. The house is nestled back from the main road and gives quiet, peace, and tranquility. Yakelin arranged for taxi (much cheaper than I expected!!) to pick me up in Havana and take me back on my return and offered advise on excursions and arranged them for me. Plus, she is an AMAZING cook! I did not even have to go to a restaurant because her food was so good! When I am back in Vinales, I will be sure to stay here again. Two days was not enough!

We had an amazing time at Yakelins place. The room is spacious and clean and the surrounding and the views from the small porch are exceptional!! We would definitely come again. In case you travel to Viñales from Havanna booking a taxi from the casa in Havanna is much cheaper (15 CUC) than the one Yaki offered (25 CUC). Apart from this we enjoyed the hours riding tour Yakeline organized for us and the great dinner.

Yakelin's casa was great. The room is self-contained so you can come and go without disturbing the family, and the shower and air conditioning are both good. The house itself is about a ten minute walk from the main street in Viñales and the road out to it is mainly dirt track but once you get there it's very peaceful and you have a great view over the countryside. Aside from the room, Yakelin was a great host. Though we didn't have a lot of Spanish we were able to communicate pretty well and Yakelin organised our trip out to the caves, salsa class and sunset horseback ride through the Valle del Silencio, which was the highlight of our stay in Viñales. She is also a great cook and I'd definitely recommend the breakfast.  We would gladly stay again.

Our stay in Viñales at Casa La Ceiba was truly one of my favorite travel experiences in a very long time. We travel often with our two very young children and it can be a challenge to find places to stay where we not only feel welcomed but right at home. Our kids quickly made friends with the owener's young daugher and played for hours in the lovely garden. The house is in the perfect location, close to town, and a nice refuge from rain and heat. We had a delicious dinner and breakfast there and our only regret is that we didn't stay a whole week! Highly recommend!
