My fiancee and I chose to visit Remedios for the Las Parrandas festival. Normally for 51 weeks of the year Remedios is a sleep little town but for 1 week it comes alive with fireworks, music and thousands of people form all over cuba. However there are other attractions to make Remedios a worthwhile stop on your trip in Cuba. It is a short cab ride away from Santa Clara where you can visit the Che memorial and a cigar factory, you can also visit Cayo Santa Maria with its beautiful beaches and great diving but best of all you can stay with Lester and Naty in their wonderful Casa. Lester and Naty are wonderful hosts looking after your every need, making sure you are comfortable and relaxed, fed at every meal to bursting point with wonderfully cooked food and nothing is ever too much for them. There is nice secluded garden to relax in and Lester is always thinking about ways to improve your stay and the casa. He really knows what customer service is all about which is very refreshing in a country which is severly lacking it. We met some fantastic people during our time in Remedios and would highly recommend that you stay at Hostal Buen Viaje.
