Casas Particulares are the first forms of private management of the tourism business in Cuba, similar to Bed & Breakfast; you can book a single room or a whole house, or post a multiple booking request for all the destinations you will reach during your journey, in case you have a pre-fixed itinerary. Be sure that an accommodation in a Casa Particular is a lot more better than a hotel bedroom.
We believe that most of those travelling to Cuba are looking for a close contact with our beautiful nature, our beaches, our culture, our music, and more importantly: our people. So the best way to stay in direct contact with the Cubans, our hospitality, get to know the way we live, the way we are, the way we face everyday’s troubles with a smile, is living among us. This applies to those interested in renting a private accommodation sharing common areas with the Cuban families.
Houses with family are houses with the presence of the Cuban family that owns the house. Usually they’re big flats or houses in which some rooms are rented to tourists, with private or shared bathroom between the bedrooms (but different from the one used by the family); the presence of the Cuban family will ensure preparation of meals (if requested), house cleaning (of the whole house, including rooms for tourists), more safety and the possibility of exchanging ideas and opinions with the cubans and to share their life-style for a few days; maybe the better way to descover the real Cuba.
About independent houses, it is useful to know that they may be occupied totally – exclusive use – or shared with other tourists. The Cuban family will not live in the house and will provide house cleaning and meal preparation – if agreed locally.
All house types include clean towels and linen; food (dinner, lunch, breakfast, sandwiches, etc.) are on-request, with prices agreed locally with the houses’s owner. Ususally brekfast costs between 3 and 7 CUC, while a meal can cost between 7 CUC – chicken main course – and 25 CUC – lobster main course. Breakfast – unless stated in the house-list – and meals are not included. You can arrange the price directly with the house owners, according to the menu.
Pre-payment is not always required, but remember that owners pay high rate taxes, regardless if their room is occupied by the tourist or not, so if you book a casa through us and you cancel your travel or change destination, please email-us. You will give the owner the chance to host another tourist.
All houses published on this site are legal and authorized by the Cuban State; you can leave the address at the Custom control – it will be required. It is not possible to finalize commercial transactions with Cuba, so the reservation is made on the reciprocal trust by the two parties. You will pay locally the house owner, only in CUC (pesos Cubanos Convertibles) cash. If the house you have chosen is no longer available or already booked, another house will be offered in the same zone.
