I just wondered how many of you had ever stayed in a casa particular and, if so, how often?
I started off staying at the all inclusive resorts in the Guardalavava area mainly though I have stayed at Cayo Coco and Cayo Santa Maria. However nowadays I always stay in casa particulares.
I still have reservations though in recommending first timers to stay in casa particulares as they can be pretty basic and not everyone’s cup of tea.
My last night in Havana a couple of years back I was booked into what I considered a very sub standard one. I had flown up from Holguin and it was past 1am when I arrived at this house, so it was far too late for me to look for somewhere else.
