Top of the lot.... Mar 15, 2017
If we had to choose a "best of" for Cuba, Casa Font would finish top of the pile. From our first contact by mail everything went well. The only regret was that we couldn't stay here for our whole time in Trinidad. Beatriz and Leo are excellent hosts and go out of their way to be helpful with hints and tips. The house itself is one of the oldest in Trinidad, 1798 to be exact,and is full of historic artifacts and books that date from when Beatriz's family came here from Catalunia in Spain. We had the luck to sleep in the room with the bed from 1847 (although the mattress has been changed thankfully), bathroom fittings are from a little later but have that "yesteryear" feel.

Both Beatriz and Leo are good cooks and it was here that we had our very best dinner of crayfish and shrimps, fresh from the boats at La Boca. It was a real pleasure to be able to come here and eat, even on days when we weren't staying here. Leo has a very good level of English and is also an aficianado of Cuban music. A few mojitos passed my lips whilst chatting and listening to Polo Martinez, Ibrahim Ferrer and others in the patio that runs behind the main building. Another good thing is that the casa is just 100 metres from the Viazul bus depot and only a little further to the main centre of Trinidad, the Plaza Mayor.

We paid 30 CUC for the double which is an average for Trinidad, 14CUC for the "Langosta y Camarones" and 4CUC each for b/fast.

The hosts really make this place live, for all its quaintness, to have two superb people like Beatriz and Leo, gives you always a reason to come back just for a chat, a coffee, or dare I say, another mojito Patron!!!!
