Your Home in Cuba 

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.

 Option 2: Hotel

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).

Food in Cuba is wide ranging, however it in short is simple and fresh, relying heavily on ingredients produced organically on the island. Therefore you can get excited about a distinct change from processed fast foods to slow-cooked organic dishes. The island is also home to a diverse array of fruits, such as mango, pineapple, papaya, and guava that you will be sure to enjoy over breakfast. Also you can expect lots of yummy mojitos!
