Casa El Balcon is a wonderful place to stay in Vinales. Mignelys and Juanito are perfect hosts and speaks excellent English. Mignelys is an amazing cook and we had all our meals there - breakfast, lunch and dinner. You can choose your protein and she'll make you a delicious soup, rice, cassava chips, veggies (can request raw or cooked) and...

The house is new and clean, the hosts are incredibly nice and helpful. Location is in the perfect center of the small village of Vinales. The hosts will help you with whatever you may need, a taxi ride or a trip into the plantations. Also good food served in the Casa. Strongly recommended!!

This Casa has a great balcony overlooking a busy street with a parade of vehicles, animals and people that can entertain you for hours. They also have a huge rooftop terrace with great sunset and Vinales valley views. The 4 rooms have their own bathroom and can be a little loud, especially the street side one. We ate dinner here...

Mignelys & Juan were so friendly, helpful & accommodating. We had dinner on the roof terrace - excellent lobster dinner. Miglnelys arranged a horse ride for us & even exchanged money saving us from standing in a long line at the Cambio. El Balcon is centrally located and close to everything. Wonderful visit all around to Vinales.

After a long drive to Viñales we were welcomed by the family, shown our rooms and given some fresh juice to help us relax. The casa is beautifully kept with a great roof terrace for enjoying the sunset over Viñales with one of Juanito's potent mojitos. We requested dinner on our first night, and then again the following nights as...

Vinales is a must see when traveling to Cuba. It was very different from anywhere else that we visited in the country. El Bacon de Mignelys y Juanito was the perfect place to stay for the 2 nights and 3 days that we explored the town. The house is very modern. The rooms are very comfortable and very clean. The...
