What are Casas Particulares?
During your trip, you’ll have the unique opportunity to stay in casas particulares, which literally translates as private homes. Casas 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. Our portfolio of casas particulares are hand selected with prime locations that will put you right in heart of the action, whether it’s in Havana’s most vibrant neighborhoods or in the center of Viñales town.

What Can I Expect?
Due to the severe lack of state-run hotel space in Cuba, casas are becoming extremely popular for travelers to Cuba. Each casa must register with the government and provide the following for its guests:
- Double or single occupancy rooms
- Air conditioning
- Private or “Jack-and Jill” style bathrooms
- Hot and cold water
- A fresh breakfast each morning
This allows travelers to have comfortable, authentic experience in Cuba. It is also a fantastic way to come face-to-face with Cuban culture and immerse yourself into the day-to-day of Cuban society.
