Where We Stayed: Havana

View Cuba 2024 on amikulski's travel map.

Our group stayed in casas particulares (AirBnB-type accommodations) in the Vedado neighborhood. The family that hosted DD1 and me seems to work primarily with educational exchange programs, but if they ever take independent travelers, this can be a positive review for them. And if you’re an Alandis traveler assigned to Alfonso’s place, you’ll know you’re in good hands.

The setup here is basically an apartment in part of the house, with a living area that goes back into a kitchen and bath.

Upstairs there is a study area and bedroom.

There is AC in the bedroom and fans in the living area.

The arrangement that Alandis made for us included breakfast every day and several dinners. I don’t have pictures of the breakfasts, but every day we had a tasty breakfast sandwich with delicious Cuban coffee and juice. We were also fed very well at dinner! For example, one night we had ropa vieja with fried rice, freshly made potato chips, and veggies.

Alfonso and his family are also just great people. We will forever be grateful to them for driving us through my mom’s neighborhood and to my cousin’s house.
