Jonathan rivera in La habana

september 6-10

Hello Jonathan, 

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

Under our standard package, you will be able to do a lot in Havana and stay in a lovely place.  I have put together a plan for you thinking of all the ways you can have a fabulous time, get to experience the city, learn about the culture, and simply enjoy your time in Cuba.   

Please find below a couple of options for accommodation, and a list of activities for you during those 4 nights, 5 days.   These are optional, just an example for now.  I am also listing other options underneath for your consideration. Let me know.  We can tailor this as much as you want. 

Accommodations

  • As mentioned, with our standard package, I can offer you one of the B&B we work with. These are privately owned, great service, and both located in Centro Havana. A central area in between Old Havana and Vedado. These three areas are the ones you will be spending the most time in.  Both of these options are great, with great hostesses.

  • If you would like something more private, or more exclusive I can also find you that, but the price would go up at least $45 per night, average.  Again all will depend on availability. 

Option 1 - Casa Siglo V

  • This is a three level house. it has a large balcony, and nice terrace. All rooms have AC and bathroom.

  • We can offer rooms with three beds in necessary.

  • I personally know the lady who would take care of you, she is simply awesome. Great breakfast and service.

  • This one offers more privacy. Since management leaves late in the afternoon.

  • I will actually be ending one of our hosted weeks in this place the 7th. So will get the chance to meet some other clients and the host that Thursday night, September 6th. 

Option 2-  One bedroom suite

  • The second option is one of the most beautiful houses in Centro Havana. Guests love the decoration and character of the rooms. 

  • The owners do live in the house, but they are located in the back and you wouldn't notice them unless you need them. They are super nice and friendly. 

  • We can offer rooms with three beds in necessary.

  • This one is located around the corner from option 1. I would still like to offer you join the other group that night if you are interested. 

  • PS: The quality of the photos is not the best. They don't do justice to the actual place.
