In a quiet little hamlet a few kilometers from the centre of Viñales rests Casa Felicia. Felicia, José Luis and Nancy are wonderful hosts looking forward to sharing their culture with you. Here you will be able to enjoy delicious home cooked Cuban meals made with organic ingredients, many of which are grown in their own backyard. At breakfast you will try fruits picked fresh from the property: papaya, plantains, mangoes, limes, guava, mandarines, mamey, oranges and chirimoya. If you arrive at the right time, you might even be lucky enough to try the honey José Luis himself collects from the nearby honeycombs.

Felicia, Nancy and José Luis hope to give you the highlight of your trip to Cuba.

Felicia, Jose Luis and Nancy were the most wonderful hosts! Directions to their home from the airport was easy (we received lots of info around their location and accommodations prior to arrival). We arranged lunch to be ready when we arrived, and sure enough the table was set with the most delicious food and fresh juices! The room was very comfortable and included a private bathroom and AC unit, which helped immensely with the hot weather. Their neighbors were friendly and we loved how many animals roamed around the gardens. It was easy to arrange almost anything with Felicia and Luis throughout our trip. Whether it was arranging breakfast, dinners, tours and taxis, Luis was very quick to assist with everything we needed. The location was FANTASTIC! The house is a quick 5 min walk from Hotel Jazmines, where you could get access to WiFi, a pool, great pina coladas and the most incredible view of the Vinales Valley. A quick colectivo to the central town of Vinales was about a 7 min drive. We cannot recommend the warmth and hospitality of Casa Felicia enough. We hope to return and stay with them again sometime!

This is literally one of the best places to stay. It's outside vinales and gives you a taste of real Cuban families in the area. It's basically a farm with chicken and baby pigs running around. Luis was kind enough to set up a horseback ride through the plantation that is unlike anything you'll read online. Our guide showed up to the house with three horses. We didn't have to go anywhere and we left when we were ready. Just the two of us. No group tour. Breakfast and dinner were amazing. Felicia is an amazing cook. It's way better than anything you'll find in town. The community is amazing and will make sure you are safe. They don't speak English but Dior (their neighbor) does and can help you communicate if need be. The room was clean and you have your own bathroom. Trust me. Stay here.

My boyfriend and I were welcomed to Felicia's home with smiles and an amazing dinner even after our bus from Trindad was much later than they were expecting. Felicia, with her daughter Nancy and son Jose Luis live in the tranquil valley of Vinales about 8 minutes outside of the city center by car. But trust me, you will want to spend your whole time in their community, just a 5 min walk from breathtaking views of the valley and the coffee and tobacco farms (as well as a wifi spot at a walkable hotel) There are plenty of nice airbnb's in town, but if you're looking to get away from the numerous tourists in the city center and the noises that come with that and actually be in a true Cuban community, this is your spot. Our room was clean and spacious with wonderful AC. Felicia's cooking was the best in our two weeks in Cuba-we ate breakfast ($4 CUC), lunch and dinner every day at home! Their porch is where you will find great conversations, the random pig or chickens scurry by, and friendly neighbors walking by happy to say hello! Felicia and her family helped us arrange taxis, a horse riding/coffee/tobacco farm tour excursion and a bus to Cayó Leviso (a gorgeous white sand beach about 45 min away). My Spanish is alright and my boyfriend does not speak much Spanish, but we had no problems communicating everything needed with the family. We highly recommend their lovely home. Gracias Felicia, José Luis, y Nancy por todo! :)

We loved our stay here! It's a nice, quiet and secluded place just outside Vinalles, which we loved. It was great being a bit further from town, with the option of exploring in the backyard or going in to town for more of a scene. We can't write enough nice things about the family, who welcomed us with open arms; despite our limited English, we were able to communicate at a very human level and recall our time here very fondly. The food at the house was also amazing (the best dinner we had during our 7-day trip in the country), as well the freshly squeezed mango juice. Would love to return to this magical spot.

If you are looking for a "homestay-esk" atmosphere, look no further than Papaya Porch. You will be showered with the welcoming kindness of Felicia, Jose Luis, and Nancy from the moment you arrive. You will receive explicit instructions on the location, how to arrive, and recommendations of things to do in Vinales from Elle, who is extremely helpful. My boyfriend and I enjoyed our talks with the family and learning more about daily life in Cuba. When we both fell ill, the family did all they could to ensure we received the best care. We are so grateful to them and hope to return again!

We loved our stay at Papaya Porch. What a lovely accommodating family. They were happy to help us make arrangements for any excursion we wanted to do. The house was lovely, very simple but so clean and inviting. Felicia, Nancy, Jose Luis and their friend Raquel were all friendly and ensured we had a great time! The beautiful valleys are nearby to explore! Great hikes and visiting with the nearby campesinos! We hope to go back some day! The food & cocktails that Felicia prepared were amazing! Be sure and have a few meals with them, very reasonable priced and fresh and delicious!

Felicia's house was the perfect spot after being in lively (read: loud, busy, smelly) havana for a few days. The house was exquisitely clean, well furnished, and Felicia and Jose Luis could not have been more gracious hosts. We loved the food, the drinks and their hospitality. Would definitely return!
