There are lots of museums, great restaurants and bars and clubs you can visit while in Havana.
Your accommodation is at ‘Casa Jakera’, a licensed Casa Particulare. Casa Particulares are government licenced ‘private homestay’ accommodation whereby Cubans are permitted to rent out one or two bedrooms in their home to paying guests. However, the licensing regime has recently been extended to include larger hostal style accommodation.
Casa Jakera features shared bedrooms, separate shower and toilet facilities, dining rooms and lots of comfortable indoor and outdoor space, including a spacious roof terrace. Here you can enjoy hanging out with new friends or chilling on your own to enjoy the cool breezes and great views of the streets below. As with most of Havana you will enjoy taking in the atmosphere in this central location which is truly unique.
Paying a single room supplement you have the option to stay in another nearby Casa with your own room and en suite bathroom. Either way breakfast and lunch are served at Casa Jakera which is the hub of program activities, as this is also where Spanish lessons are taken as well as group discussions, planning meetings and impromptu social gatherings.
Should you wish to book additional nights at a Casa Particular, this can be done via your travel advisor at a rate of 35 EUR per night per person in a shared room, or 46,50 EUR per night in a private room.
Your arrival transfer is included. Local transportation during the program is at own cost.
If you combine a 3 or 4-week stay in Havana and Trinidad, please note that transport between Havana and Trinidad is NOT included in the price. You can take a bus which takes around 4 and a half hours. The cost is approx. 35 USD in each direction and you book and pay for this locally.
