Casa Yazmin, from 20 CUC per day: all new, clean, with terrace
Bed for ♥ ♥ in the apartment
Casa for rent in the upper floor
For the demanding guest
This entire apartment, with independent entry, kitchen, terrace has been refurbished in 2013 and is
currently considered to be one of the best in Holguin, Cuba. A safe and quiet (not a main street)
place to stay. Recommended by experienced Cuba travellers, rents start from
20 CUC per day
I have stayed at Yazmin in April 2013 and was astonished how clean, quiet and
modern this apartment was. No cheap carpentry, attention to detail everywhere and even
the towels were of much higher quality then you get in other casas in Cuba.
I was missing a phone, but even then: this is an excellent value for money.
Count on me, Yazmin, I'll be back.

Founded in January 1817, Gibara is also known as "La Villa Blanca" from the color of its colonial architecture and well-planned layout of its streets, houses and parks. Nowadays, the old quarter is full of colorful houses, providing the perfect backdrop for my composition of this "máquina", so typical to see in the streets of Cuba.
Founded as San Isidoro de Holguín in 1545, the city was named after its founder Captain García Holguín, a Spanish military officer. Holguin is now the third largest city in Cuba and renown for its city parks and squares. I composed this scene of two classic "maquinas" at Parque Calixto Garcia, in front of the old department store called La Epoca, which made for the perfect backdrop for this beautiful 1952 Chevy Bel Air.
