Local Cuba Experts
The trip.me way of travel
Casas Particulares (Private House)
In Cuba it gives different kind of accommodations. Our Destination Experts also offer Casa Particular. These are private home stays in Cuba, which are very similar to bed and Breakfast.
Staying in a casa particular gives you the possibility to really experience the Cuban way of living. It is the way to see the hospitality of the local people.
In the Casa Particular you will have a apartment, house or lodge for a short term. In the private house you will have your own shower and toilet. Sometimes even a terrace or rooftop.
The rooms are cleaned and upgraded to tourist standards. In some cases even with extra furnishment like a telefphone, alarm clock, television and minibar.
The standards of the accommodations are high. You can compare them with the quality of a hotel. It is also possible to stay in a hotel, but because of the combination of the price, experience and value, we recommend to stay in casas particulares.
Breakfast is usually included in the price, but this is something you can discuss with your local destination expert.
Maayke was great during all the period we were scheduling my trip to Cuba! She was really informative and helpful and she replied to all of my questions really fast. Also she was really patient, since I changed my mind for my itinerary 3 times and she always adjusted the schedule accordingly! Everything was planned perfectly - our casas, tours, car rental etc. The only thing that she forgot was the vouchers for my internal flight - which I read in Cuba that were needed in order to fly to Havana from Baracoa. But even so, she provided a solution by sending same to the place we were staying in the middle of the trip. Concluding, I would totally recommend her as your travel agent!Read More Read More Less

It was a perfect arrangements by Maayke with many suggestions before finalizing the trip. We had several e-mail contacts to adjust the schedule and details. Professional planning resulted in a memorable trip to Cuba.
Everything worked out just perfect. A fantastic trip to magical Cuba.
I have just come back from a 2 week trip to Cuba arranged by trip.me
It is the first time I have used the company but have been so pleased with the seamless organisation and the quality of recommendations on accommodation and tours J will definitely be using trip.me again
I have already recommended them to a couple of friends/family
Every part of the trip went to plan- the taxi pickups and a special mention to the casa owners who are happy to book restaurants confirm tours- nothing is too much trouble
