9 nights in Casas Particulares, Cuban Bed & Breakfasts. We have discovered the most comfortable lodging in Cuba is in these Casas, versus hotels that are government-owned and lacking in many amenities.
ALL meals, almost always at paladares. The paladares of Cuba are unique in that they are privately-owned restaurants where the staff takes great pride in their delicious meals and hospitality.

We took a tour to Cuba with ViveMas and were delightfully impressed by the planning and organization that went into our trip. Jenny’s knowledge of the country and customs made a big difference. The accommodations in local casas and the restaurants we enjoyed were perfect. We had never traveled with a tour group and were needlessly skeptical, but happily surprised with the fun and camaraderie that developed with our small group. Having a small bus and having details taken care of in advance made the visit seamless so we could all spend our time learning about the country.
"I had the most incredible time on my trip to Cuba. Roger is a very charismatic guide with knowledge for all kinds of special stops (artist galleries and a bird sanctuary)! Our Driver, Eduardo was one of our family taking very good care of us. What’s not to love?! The food was delicious, the architecture grand, the landscapes gorgeous, the music & dance devine, the cars so cool. The people were extremely gracious everywhere we went. I’m ready to go back!"
There were many unique surprises along the way, such as finding a Cuban band playing at the Al Capone House, drinking freshly ground coffee made on a wood stove by a wonderful Cuban couple in their humble home in the mountains, and seeing a student performance at an arts school. We felt completely safe everywhere we went from the city of Habana (how it is referred to in Cuba), to the mountains, to the beautiful beach town of Varadero, late at night in the old town of Trinidad.
