Accommodation in Cuba

Our tours include high standards of accommodation (for Cuba); please read details.

Your Accommodation

During your stay in Havana you’ll enjoy the best quality and most authentic Casa Particular* (Private House), as well as experiencing this same authentic hospitality in the colonial old town of Trinidad. We finish our tour with a few days staying all inclusive in a 4* hotel whilst visiting the idyllic and beautiful Varadero.

We take the comfort of our customers very seriously. When you stay at a Casa Particular* (Private Homestay/B&B) chosen by HSDT, you can be assured that it has been hand-picked based on our very selective criteria. We have personally met the family that run them. We only work with people who understand and share our values. We support responsible travel and working directly with the locals is the best way for us to contribute to Cuban families and local economy. We want you to stay in a home which will offer all the comfort and privacy you need and bring a unique touch to your holiday.

*Casas are usually booked on a bed and breakfast basis. Most offer evening meals, packed lunches and drinks upon request for a small additional cost.

The 4* beach hotel in Varadero is an all inclusive experience in Cuba, offering buffet breakfast, lunch and dinner.

Accommodation Info

The accommodation on this tour can be authentically basic. Due to the nature of the island’s infrastructure, the standards of the hotels – especially outside of Havana and Varadero, hotels are authentically standard compared to the rest of the world.

Depending on demand, we may use other hotels of a similar standard.
