My name is Kuma and I will be visiting Cuba for 6 days (12/28 – 1/3/2017). My plan is to take at least 4 full day tours, possibly 5. I have been researching casa particulars, but there’ re many to choose from and I was hoping someone could refer one that they stayed at or with credible reviews. I am looking for a independent/private/non-shared apartment to rent in Vedado between $50-$70 a night (US dollars), and preferably with an ocean view, however not mandatory. I would appreciate any advice and referrals you have. Also, the casa particular should allow for Cuban guest.
Hi, have you contacted any of the casas listed on the website? http://bestcubaguide.com/cheap-casas-particulares-havana-cuba/
I can help you out, but honestly, for your dates (New Years) Havana will be absolutely packed and with the kind of criteria you are looking for, many of the best places will already be reserved. These casas, with views and being completely independent, are usually reserved many months in advance for New Years.
I strongly urge you to contact any casa you can to try to find one that you like and is available. Honestly, with your criteria and the dates, I don’t think we will be able to find you the house you like.
