Havana Package

sample (4 Nights/5 days)

Hello, 

Again thank you for considering traveling with us to Habana. It is truly one of our favorite destinations, and I hope it will be one of your as well.

 

I have put together a high level plan to provide an example of what your trip could look like with us. With this plan, you will be able to experience the city, learn about the culture, and simply enjoy your time in Cuba.   

Please find below examples of actual options for accommodation, and a list of activities that can be planned for a 4 nights/5 days trip.   Each option comes with a different price, please let me know what you think.  

Accommodations

All our accommodations are located in central areas of the city. Either in Old Town, Centro Havana, or Vedado are all good locations depending on where you like to stay and what you like to do.  These are all privately owned and follow the rules and requirements of the US Government as it relates to travel to Cuba. 

Option 1-  Room w/ Private Bathroom in a small Bed and Breakfast - Centro Havana ($1349)

  • This is a very comfortable Bed n Breakfast that offers guests a lot of privacy and comfort.  It has three levels, a large balcony, and nice terrace. All rooms have AC and bathroom.  

  • The staff comes only in the mornings to do room cleaning and breakfast, and leave in the afternoon.

  • I personally know the team, and they would take good care of you. Great breakfast and service.

  • Located in Centro Habana. Which is walking distance from Old Havana, in the heart of it all.  It is a very safe neighborhood. Very representative of the city.

  • It is also only a couple of blocks from the famous Malecon, and near some of the best restaurants in the city like La Guarida, and Casa Miglis.

Option 2 - Apartment with the View - Old Havana ($1489)

  • This is one bedroom apartment located on the edge of Old Havana. It has one of the best views of the city, the Capitol building and Theater of Havana. It is close to shopping, restaurants, Chinatown, and plazas. 

  • The place is simple, but very comfortable. It has a great location, and total privacy. 

  •  Owner is very friendly and responsive.  

Option 3 -  One bedroom Loft/suite -  Old Havana ($1699)

  • This place is also located in Habana Vieja, in a recently restored and beautiful area. At a crossroads where five streets collide in a unique urban design and near everything: bars, cafes, shops, galleries, restaurants, museums, all within walking distance

  • Mixture of neo-colonial with modern flare vibe. This one bedroom apartment features soaring ceilings, large windows allowing plenty of sunshine, new modern furnishings, original floors, all modern amenities and a global eclectic decor.

  • Showing you photos of two different places. The two are separated by the exterior photos. 

 This plan in particular would also include the following:

 

  • Round trip Airport transportation in an American Classic Car

  • Breakfast 

  • Concierge services before and during your trip. We know the city and can recommend and help with reservations at restaurants, shows, and other things to do. We can also help setting up transportation. All of this can be planned in advance and pay through us so you don't have to worry about bringing enough money to Cuba

  • Access to our local agent. Someone who is there to help you and guide you as needed. He will welcome you and go over your plan when you arrive, and will also be available to assist during the duration of your trip.

  • Assistance exchanging money at the best rate possible

  • All required paper work to meet US restrictions on travel to Cuba under the People to People Exchange category

  • Guides for the city upon requested

  • A cell phone for you to use to contact our local agent whenever he is needed. We include $10 CUC credit. 

  • 2 WiFi cards to help you connect when you first arrive. 

  • A rum bottle, and beers for you to enjoy during your stay

Please Note:

  • We are including 4 activities in this sample. 3 are local, and one is what we considered a day trip.  We can include more, or less. We will just need one per night/day to meet government regulations. 

  • We would provide guidance and recommendations for you to enjoy during your free time. 

Let me know if you have any questions or comments after reviewing the package.  We are happy to work with you until we have the perfect package.
