A "casa particulares" is a bed and breakfast in a private home in Cuba. Private citizens are allowed (meeting certain conditions and paying the required tax) to rent out rooms to tourists. They can offer both lodging and meals. The "casa particulares" offers a nice way to see Cuba and provide you a quality service while allowing you to get in close contact with the Cuban people. Most casas are English spoken. Most casas have air-conditioning, private bath/douche, and breakfast is included. We have several casa particulares with all very friendly people, were a perfect and fresh breakfast is served.
