Accommodation

Recently the Cuban State authorized the emerging private sector to rent rooms in their home, which represents the best opportunity for tourists to meet and stay with locals and learn about their lives.

That’s why privately owned rooms are our first proposition for this break in Havana, but we can also offer upgrade options at hotels.
