Meals are superb, a combination of classic Cuban dishes like smoked pork,chicken, black bean soup, rice and beans and fresh fish like mutton snapper and grouper. The french fries are out of this world. Salads with fresh tomatoes andother vegetables are served with olive oil and Balsamic Vinegar dressing. Our chef is happy to prepare sashimi from freshly caught fish of the day. Evening meals feature several different entrees, and our chef has often been accused off preparing enough food for twice the number of people we'll have at the table. We can promise you that no one will go hungry on this trip! Anglers staying at Hotel Rancho have their own private dining room, as well as their own private chef and wait staff. The dining room is air-conditioned and used not only for meals but also as a place to relax before dinner with a perfect Mojito and perhaps a classic Cuban Cigar.
The Perola is a 75-foot luxury live-aboard yacht that we utilize for weekly trips to the more remote areas of the Canarreos Archipelago. We stop off at selected anchorages like Cayo Campo, Cayo Roserioand the Cantiles islands. This is a wonderful yacht, recently refurbished and perfect for a group of six anglers. There are five very comfortable air conditioned beds below deck, 4 single beds and 1 double bed, all shared cabins have their own private bath, with good showers and plenty of hot water,and lots of storage space for anglers.
This is an impressive yacht, with polished hardwood floors and teak paneling. Circular stairways take you downstairs to the cabins or upstairs to the dining area on the top deck. The top deck is covered and always remains in the shade but open to the sea breeze, insuring a very comfortable and insect free environment. Clear plastic side coverings are utilized in harder winds or in inclement weather. Several comfortable rope hammocks are hung from the ceiling structureand can be lowered after lunch or dinner for a delightful nap in the breeze. A full sized, air-conditioned salon on the main deck level can be utilized for aliving and dining area in extremely harsh weather. Sinking into one of the plush couches with a good drink is the perfect way to end a long day on the flats and a full size table in the salon is the perfect spot for a couple ofanglers to tie flies.
Cuisine on the Perola is superb. Fresh fish of the day are utilized for most meals, either caught by the anglers themselves or harvested by the crew. Lobster and Conch can be had on a daily basis from the surrounding waters. Salads with fresh vegetables and a variety of fruits are available any time. In addition, you'll have wonderful pork and chicken entrees during the week, fresh sashimi for appetizers and some of the finest frozen Daiquiris known to man. Traditional Cuban flan topped off with aged Havana ClubRum is one of the many unique and delicious deserts served.
