Living Accommodations for La Habana, Cuba

Homestay

For your time in Cuba, you will stay in bed-and-breakfast style apartments, run by local Cuban families, near the Instituto de Filosofia in a student neighborhood. This style of accommodation is relatively new in Cuba and it provides you with an authentic Cuban family experience. The area is only a five minute taxi ride to Habana Vieja (the popular, touristy part of La Habana). The Vedado neighborhood is far less touristy than Habana Vieja and offers a more authentic experience; it is also close to the recently opened American embassy. You will stay in double rooms, and there will be a few students in each apartment. There will be a common living space and kitchen so you can spend time with and communicate with your host family. Daily breakfast will be provided by the landlady of the apartments.
