After staying in Airbnbs big and small all over the world, I’m a convert. I’ve found that they provide so many luxuries that you can’t find at a hotel or hostel! It bums me out that so many people are too nervous to try out Airbnb. I feel like they’re missing out on so many cool opportunities! On the other hand, I completely understand being apprehensive about it. I started out renting an Airbnb (entire apartment) with a friend. Then alone, I went alone, then I stayed in an Airbnb room in a shared apartment with a friend… And I’m still apprehensive about staying in a single room alone! But these are the reasons I think you should try Airbnb….
Hola amigas! As promised, here is my second Cuba vlog AND! It’s edited in VSCO! Colour grading on my amateur youtube channel?! What?! I love it. What do you think? Did I go overboard? Do you like it better? I don’t know!!! Either way, come along for a little day of adventuring around Viñales and see everything the beautiful valley has to offer! I’m honestly SO happy we decided to travel here to stay for a few days rather than doing a day trip. It’s easily one of the most beautiful places I’ve ever been in my entire life. I can’t believe how skeptical I was now, I thought it would be quite off the beaten track and hard to navigate but it was SO travel-friendly. I can’t say enough good things about it, so just watch the video and see for yourself!
Quick Travel Tips!
Our Airbnb in Viñales arranged a collective taxi to take us to and from Viñales. It’s well over an hour drive, and this made it a lot more affordable. At the same time, you sacrifice the advantages you’d get with a regular taxi. Regular taxis are new and comfortable, collective taxis are old, loud and don’t have A/C. Not a dealbreaker for us, but maybe for you.
Our Airbnb hosts also helped arrange some things for us to do. When we arrived we immediately whisked off for a horseback tour of the valley. It was absolutely stunning and our tour guide – their family friend – Rollo, helped us get a good understanding of the area.
