Option 1: Casas Particulares
Since 1997, the Cuban Government has permitted Cubans to rent rooms in their homes to tourists on the island. This revolutionized the lives of many, providing a much needed source of extra income as well as a broader view of life outside Cuba.Today, Casa's Particulares are essentially family-run bed & breakfasts (think AirBnB’s with private breakfast in the morning). Families invest in making sure their houses are up to international quality standards, and they greet you with Cuban hospitality - but also give you the privacy and comfort you desire. While houses vary in style from eclectic to classical, they all provide a comfortable glimpse into Cuban life and will be your home while on the island. Which Casa you'll be staying in changes from trip to trip, but there are a few photo examples below.
GRAND ASTON La Habana reveals unique designer architecture, fresh rooms, eclectic dining, inspiring event spaces, and beautiful wellness facilities, including the city’s only 24-hour fitness center and an amazing 56-meter-long swimming pool overlooking the sparkling waters of iconic Havana Bay. Rising to the Havana Malecón sky, this urban oasis is ideally located in the bustling Vedado, the capital’s central commercial district, close to offices, shops, restaurants, and entertainment. (Please Note: the final hotel is subject to change based on current laws & regulations).
Each Casa/Hotel features & provides:
Linens / blankets
Bath towel (please feel free to bring an additional towel for bathing if you prefer, generally 1 is provided)
Electricity - *Note: Electrical adapters are not needed, they are the same as the US.
Things to Always Keep in Mind:
Cuban septic systems often cannot handle toilet paper so you will need to dispose of this in trash cans/
Water pressure can sometimes be weak and hot water may not always be as hot as you'd like.
Electrical blackouts, while likely uncommon in your stay, could happen. *Note: Bring a flashlight just in case.
Please always let your guide know if you have any questions or need anything along the way, they will be there to support you!
