Living Accommodations for La Habana, Cuba
For your time in Cuba, you will stay in bed-and-breakfast style apartments, run by local Cubans, near the University of Habana in a student neighborhood. This style of accommodation is relatively new in Cuba but has exploded in popularity as an inexpensive and more authentic living experience. The area is only a 5-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 hang out together and cook in that area. Daily breakfast will be provided by the landlady of the apartments.
