Hola, I'm glad you chose Havana. My wife Yaima and I want you to fall as in love with it as we are. Our home is located in the heart of the elegant Vedado neighborhood, walking distance from historical, cultural, recreational areas, ideal for enjoying the city and its people. You'll find up - to - date comprehensive local info and maps to help you make the most of your stay. Make sure to ask for our highly in demand custom tours! This trip will be a once in a life time experience!

The space
The apartment is located in the safe and quiet Vedado neighborhood preferred by families and group of friends. It is on the 3rd floor of a 1950's apartment building with a balcony offering plenty of natural light and a view of the vibrant life of Vedado. It's very clean, spacious, and nicely decorated, it has a living room, dining room and three bedrooms with exterior windows. Two of the bedrooms have new/comfortable Queen size mattresses to ensure a good night's sleep and the third one has two twin three quarter size brand new mattresses. Others features included: modern and silent A/C systems, closets, Safe Box, hot/cold water. The kitchen is fully equipped to meet all your cooking needs. The fridge is stocked with beverages, fruits, snacks and more. There is landline phone available for guests at no extra cost. We provide Internet by DATA in the apartment using a local cellphone helping you to stay connected. (3.00cuc rental x day plus the DATA you consume) because this is a new service in Cuba the speed is no so great and the cost is still high. If you prefer I can offer at no extra cost a Wifi card for each guest that can be used in any of the many hot spots that we have in the city where internet speed is much better. The card is good for 1 hour connection and you don't have to use it all at once. Please make sure you request it before arrival. Just minutes away you'll find the Malecon - Havana's famous ocean -front promenade, the Columbus cemetery considered the second most elaborated necropolis in the world, just after Paris and John Lennon park, perfect for early morning jogs. Old Havana is a quick drive in one of the city's 1950s vintage taxis.

Other things to note
We offer specialized guiding services and assistance, not just the regular tourist trip. Our experiences are defined as immersions in Cuba history and culture, past and present, off the beaten track, helping people to understand how Cubans are and live. During the tours we will talk about history, culture, religion, politics, traditions and current affairs of Cuban society. The good and the bad are presented with honesty and pride.

Some of our customized tours are: "From Columbus to Castro. 500 yrs of history" a comprehensive tour of Havana through its history, culture and people. "Hemingway in Havana" a delightful tour of Hemingway's presence in the city for over 20 years. "Return to the Jurassic" a fun and full day excursion to the Viñales Valley. All tours include transportation in vintage American classic car, bilingual guide service by a scholar (me!) who will make the experience educational and fun, plus more.
If you don't book the accommodation through us you can still ask about the tours and book them.
Do not miss the chance of getting to know the genuine and authentic Cuba!

I'm proudly born and raised in Havana but half of my heart is in Viñales where my extensive family lives. I have traveled some of the world but always found good reasons to come back to my roots. I have a master in political science and photography is my hobby. I founded and directed a specialized travel company for 12yrs. Sharing the richness, shades and diversity of my country and its people while I learn about others is my passion. Let's enjoy Cuba!
