Your Destinations

Havana

Havana offers a vibrant mix of cultures, history, and experiences. Its cobbled streets are alive with cafes, bars and the rhythmic sounds of the rumba. The city's architecture is an eclectic mix of Baroque, Neo-classical and Art Deco styles and the colonial buildings of 'Old Havana' have earned the city a UNESCO World Heritage Site listing.

Culturally Havana is a melting pot of influences from Europe, Africa and the Americas. Its unique ambience and resilient character have lured writers, artists and even the occasional revolutionary. With a wealth of exciting attractions, there is so much to do and see.

Trinidad

Experience slow-paced island living here. Trinidad is a well-preserved Spanish colonial settlement, boasting colonial-style mansions bedecked with Italian frescoes and French chandeliers. Declared a World Heritage Site by UNESCO in 1988, the beauty of Cuba's oldest and most enchanting outdoor museum has been luring tourists ever since. Surrounded by sparkling natural attractions, Trinidad also offers its visitors gorgeous beaches and lush nature.

Cayo Santa Maria

Cayo Santa Maria is a small island (sixteen kilometres long and two kilometres wide) located in the Bahia de Buena Vista, off the north coast of the main island of Cuba. Its main attraction is its superb beach! Divided into five sections for a total of approximately 13 km, it is ideal for taking long walks on the beach, swimming in pristine turquoise waters or just relaxing under the sun!

Your Home Stays

You will enjoy a total of 5 or 6 nights in a Standard or Superior Casa Particulares (home style stay) in Havana and Trinidad and with Bed & Breakfast dining.

Standard Casas

To help you appreciate this fascinating destination from a unique perspective, we've included stays in authentic, private houses of the inhabitants of Havana, Santa Clara, Trinidad and Cienfuegos - known as 'casas particulares'. The living spaces are shared with other guests, meaning you can compare notes and tips - a great chance to meet new people in a warm and inviting atmosphere. 

By staying with a Cuban family, you will be immersed in the local culture - a truly unmissable experience! The accommodation is a traditional standard room, air-conditioned and equipped with a private bathroom inside the house. You will enjoy a daily breakfast.

Superior Casas

Superior Casas haved the same homely welcome as a Standard Casa, but with a more modern decoration, much like a boutique hotel. They are often recently renovated with a more elegant style. Each house could feature exotic plants, tropical gardens and antiques which reflect the personality of your Cuban host.
