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.

The Colorful Villa Blanca (Gibara, Cuba 2018) 2020-01-08
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.
The first impression you get when you land in Cuba, is that time froze decades ago, from the old classic cars to the decaying colonial architecture, but thanks to the resilience of its people, life goes on. Yank tank or máquina are the words used to describe the many classic cars present in Cuba with an estimated 60,000 of them still driving the roads today. I captured this beauty in Holguin, Cuba’s third largest city, renown for its city parks and squares.
