Looking for a BnB type accommodation in Cuba?
Try out a wide range of Casa Particulares where families have opened their homes and kitchens to visitors in their enchanting country.
Private families have only been allowed to rent out rooms in their home, legally, since Cuba's 2011 reforms.
- These home-based rooms are called "casa particulares" and come with a typically huge breakfast including fruit, coffee, toast and eggs. You will find that each casa dishes up their own unique style of breakfast.
- Some families also offer delicious home-cooked dinners for an additional cost.
- Room rates range between CUC30 and CUC35 per night (which is approximately equivalent to US $30 - US $35)
- Fun fact: Cuba grows its own coffee plants which perk into a delicious local java.
AirBnB now taps into many of the casa particulares, however when I visited in early 2016 they only allowed Americans to book through their site.
