The hostel El Palenque is located on the street Church of the fishing and port town of Casilda. This small town is located 5 km from the city of Trinidad and is formed mainly by fishermen due to the proximity to the sea. It is also only 8 kms from Ancón beach and the main diving areas of the south coast of Cuba. El Palenque hostel is a modern building where 2 spacious air-conditioned rooms are rented, one of them on the first level of the house and the other on the second, each with a maximum capacity for 3 people. Both rooms are very well prepared to guarantee the comfort of the clients that are reserved in them because they have wall fans, windows and minibar stocked with soft drinks, beers and sealed mineral water. Each room has its private interior bathroom, with permanent cold and hot water service; besides having the necessary elements for personal hygiene such as soap, shampoo, towels and toilet paper. From the terraces of the second and third level you can enjoy unrepeatable views of the Escambray mountains, the town and its surroundings.
