Casa Particular accommodations give guests an authentic experience in villages, beach towns, and cities across Cuba. Travelers stay in a home that provides "bed & breakfast" accommodations. Therefore, you will have first-hand encounters with local people, cultural traditions, food, and music of the country. This unique opportunity also provides insight into the lives of Cubans and their day-to-day activities.
A homestay in a Casa Particular almost always includes a private bathroom. Hosts typically speak English but you should expect varying levels of proficiency. You will be provided with your trip leader's cell phone number if translation assistance is needed.
Our guide and driver were very good with their knowledge and were very helpful with our questions. It was a very pleasant visit that would have been impossible to do on our own. Hotels and restaurants were fantastic. The special places we got to go to, like the kitchens, were great. Enjoyed the entire trip!
