Why a casa particular
Casas particulares are a popular type of accommodation throughout Cuba. A casa particular is a kind of Cuban Bed & Breakfast, which means that you stay with a Cuban family - but of course with the privacy of a private room with air conditioning and access to your own bathroom and toilet. The rooms in these casas are very comfortable and affordable. An additional advantage is that it is the perfect way for you to get in touch with the locals, and that the locals benefit from your stay. We have a network of trusted casas particulares that we have chosen to work with and who meet our requirements. Many casas particulares are also a paladar: a living room restaurant. Casa owners can prepare the best Cuban food for you, making your local experience even more special!
Casas particulares come in all shapes and sizes, which partly depends on the specific destination. Some casas particulares are spacious and luxurious, with a beautiful roof terrace or patio and spacious bathrooms. In Trinidad, for example, there are beautiful colonial mansions, and Havana also has lovely and unique casas particulares. In other casas, in the countryside for example, the stay will be more modest. But all casas particulares we work with meet the requirements that we have set in terms of privacy and hygiene. And ultimately what counts is of course the homely atmosphere, the warmth and hospitality of the Cubans you stay with.
