Afar magazine lists the most beautiful "casas particulares" in Havana

Havana, the capital city of Cuba, is becoming one of the world's trendiest destinations. The borders are finally opening up for Americans to explore this Caribbean island and the first luxury American hotel – Four Points Havana – will soon be opening its doors. Local Havana residents are starting to use Airbnb to open up the doors to their homes and rent out their spaces to visitors. This offers a unique and special opportunity for visitors to Cuba to stay and get to know the locals.

One of the advantages of staying in an Airbnb when visiting Cuba is the opportunity to interact with a local family. The Cuban people are known for being warm and friendly and they will treat their guests to a great local experience.

First of all, take a look at this cozy one-bedroom stay within a historic bed and breakfast. The interior evokes the glamour and elegance of a time gone by with teal walls, marble floors and a stunning four-poster canopy bed. Amenities within the accommodation include a full gym, a swimming pool, an indoor and outdoor dining area and a relaxation centre complete with massage treatments. It is located on a hill with fantastic views of the city and is available at $60 per night.

Within walking distance from the Malecon, a seaside esplanade in Havana, AFAR magazine recommends a lovely two-storey Colonial style home. It is furnished with beautiful dark wood furniture and decorated in antiques and elegant chandeliers. Breakfast is served on the sunny rooftop terrace that overlooks the city. Prices are from $44 per night.

If you are travelling with a larger group, a great option is this three-bedroom, two bathroom 1920s Colonial style home. It can accommodate up to 6 guests and it features two terraces, a bar and a kitchen. It is located in the funky neighborhood of Vedado close to nightlife and bars and is available from $165 per night.

These are just a few of the excellent Havana Airbnb options that tourists can choose from when they opt to stay in this beautiful and historic city. Of course, Airbnb isn't the only option, though, and those who prefer to stay all-inclusive in a hotel are also well catered for on the island.
