The following mini-guide is a list of some of the best and cheapest casas particulares in Havana. These are independent, privately owned apartments and rooms which can be rented throughout Cuba. Over the last decade, they have become very popular accommodation options for foreigners and tourists visiting the island. Not only are casas particulares cheaper than staying at state run hotels, but they also offer the opportunity to easily interact with Cuban hosts, while still maintaining privacy and independence.
All the casas particulares listed in this mini guide are located within the Vedado neighborhood of Havana. This is a fantastic neighborhood for foreigners because the apartments are well maintained and despite being close to the Havana action, Vedado is much less touristy than other neighborhoods. By renting one of the casas particulares presented in this guide, you will have the opportunity of experiencing Havana life from a local perspective, avoid tourist traps, and save a lot of money by not renting a room at an overpriced, state-run hotel.
