Our place is close to restaurants and the city centre. You’ll love the coziness, becoming part of the family, and great chats about life and Cuban history. Riki is a skilled diving instructor and has gear for even larger groups. Why not catch your own lobster and have it prepared on our barbecue in the patio for dinner with Neisy's delicious food to accompany it? Would you like to go horse back riding to a nearby water fall for a swim? Taxi or bus to fantastic Playa Ancon? We are here to help.

The space

Our house is a traditional Cuban house with a somewhat narrow facade, and everything extends beyond the front door into a living room, a long roof covered but partly open aisle with the rooms untill you get to the kitchen and the partly roof-covered patio, where the huge dining table sits - the heart of the house where great barbecuing and socializing and lively discussions take place.

Guest access

Guests will have access to all parts of the house except the private bed rooms and bathroom of Riki, Neisy and Ricardo.

Interaction with guests

We are happy to help you out - whether it is about snorkling, diving, horse back riding, transport to the beach, taxi or bus to other citities, and we even have many good relations in other cities to be able to help you finding accomodation elsewhere. Just let us know what you need, and we will let you know if we can help

Other things to note

The International Clinic (hospital) is our next door neighbour, and in there you can buy bottled water 24-7 (and it is not always that easy to find particularly in the night time).
Within walking distance you will find the historic center of Trinidad including Casa de la Musica (which is actually not a house but a large open space in the middle of a stair case) and many other places where traditional Cuban music is played.
It is safe to walk the streets in the night time - that is the nice thing about this place.

Ricardo's place was great! Li really welcomed us and did everything she could to help us with everything we needed! She booked us taxis for the beach and for Havana too and she helped us get our start in getting to know Trinidad! Plus she made delicious breakfast and the most amazing fried chicken for our lunch! The room was very nice and spacious and very clean and it had hot water at all times. I definitely recommend staying at Ricardo's in Trinidad and I hope to get the chance to be back soon. Gracias por todo.

We are a family consisting of me, Riki, my wife Neisy and our grown-up son Ricardo. We are a traditional social Cuban family, who appreciate having people around us and to eat good food. My wife Neisy is an excellent cook, but I do the barbecuing and home-caught fish and lobster …
