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.
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
Overall we very much enjoyed our trip to Cuba. It was easy to communicate with Maayke, and her planning and timing were very good. All of the transfers were on time. Our guides were also very good and we learned a great deal from them about life in Cuba. Our accommodations were good, with one exception (the casa in Trinidad).Read More Read More Less
