My Cuban Casa is a directory of guest houses in Cuba for foreign citizens who want to experience Cuba and its culture from a vantage point other than the typical resort. In most cases a Casa Particular offers access directly to the heart of a city or town that it is located in. A Casa Particular is for those adventure seekers who don’t want to be kept in groups or surrounded by swarms of tourists from the same country as you are. Amenities are sometimes limited to the size of the guest house, but your experience is incomparable when your heart is exposed to Cuban hospitality.
My Cuban Casa lists homes according to provincial location, star rating, amenities and price range. While searching for a location, keep in mind your arrival location to the largest airport and what you intend to do while you are visiting Cuba. You can also come back to the site and rate your visit in the house as you experienced it. Your input is greatly appreciated as home owner can only improve on their service when you say something, and word or mouth is very important as we try to increase your cultural experience.
Most homes are privately operated by Cubans and not by the government as in the case of the resorts. Please remember that Spanish is the language most widely spoken by the home owner. Unless you have a friend to help with translations, please have a device to help with the barrier. Most home owners are aware of tourist attractions, locations for currency exchange, restaurants and may be able to arrange someone to assist with transportation or information.
Some home owners may also provide certain meals upon request, or allow for you to cook in their kitchen. Please note that you will not find supermarkets as in your home country. Some ingredients that are common place may be considered a luxury item and may not be available during your stay in Cuba.
It is our hope that you enjoy your experience in Cuba. A rich culture includes a variety of music, food, art and history. Locals enjoy telling stories while sipping on their favorite rum or smoking a cigar and do appreciate your visit as it helps build their economy.
