Yes really! You can stay in Cuba for about $30 a night or about $210 for the entire week! I visted Cuba last month and found some great places to stay in private homes. The average price was $25 to $35 per night with  private bath rooms. The living area is usually shared.                                                                                              ...

Cuba has become accessible to the United States. Nonstop flights from US cities are now available. Yet, the cost of tours are a deterrent for many people.

After the initial...

Traveling to Cuba on a budget? One easy way to save is to stay in a private home. I visited several of these homes in Old Havana last month and took pictures which are posted below. Personally, I think the best places to stay in Cuba are rooms in privately owned homes. You get to mix with the locals and really get a feel of the real Cuba. Plus the prices are so much lower than in a hotel and you help the local economy! All of the "proprietors" were very friendly and extremely open to sharing their homes and knowledge....

After being away from Cuba for decades, I finally went back to my birth country. Wow, what an emotional roller coaster. Because my Visa did not arrive on time, I had to cut my trip back from 7 days to 4 days. I also had to take a new airline because the initial airline flight schedule was very limited. By the way, all flights are currently through charter companies. Despite being a relatively short trip, it was packed with experience. Overall, the Cuban people are lovely and the country is beautiful. I took lots of pictures, many of which I...
