JOse ponce in La habana

november 15 - 21

Hello Jose, 

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.

With a budget of $3000 per person, we can do a lot in Havana.  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 6 nights, 7 days.   These are optional, so I am also listing couple others underneath in case that gets more your attention.   Let me know.  We can tailor this as much as you want. 

Accommodations

  • I am assuming we will only need one bedroom so please correct me if that's not the case. These options are similar in that they both have an excellent location, they are modern, and have a style and amenities not too common in Habana.  Please take a look 

Option 1-  Loft

  • Located in Habana Vieja. In a recently restored and beautiful area. It is near major museums, the malecom, and great restaurants, bars, shops, and major attractions.

  • Elegant and sleek loft  The style is modern with an industrial flair.  This is unique designer-curated space. Large window, a lot of natural lights, large bathroom. 

  • Breakfast is included and served in a restaurant/cafe down the street of the apartment.  Less than a minute walk.

Option 2-  One bedroom suite

  • 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.

  • Breakfast is included and served in a restaurant/cafe down the street of the apartment.  Less than a minute walk.
