Our Authentic Havana tour brings you into the heart of a typical Cuban neighborhood with a four-night stay at a privately owned, colonial-style Cuban bed and breakfast. This lovingly restored and furnished B&B is managed by a small team of dedicated men and women who will be like a family away from home. Our centrally located bed and breakfast, just a ten-minute walk to Old Havana and even closer to shops, restaurants, and nightlife, offers a more authentic and intimate experience yet provides all the amenities and comforts you want and deserve. 

Thanks to reduced flights via more convenient scheduled air and great pricing at our "casa," we've managed to lower prices while maintaining our high standard of creative, culturally-focused itineraries. On Authentic Havana, you'll dive deep into the daily life of everyday Cubans, including a visit to a private studio of one of Cuba's budding artists.

So that we can offer you the best deals, our packages are, like most hotels and cruises, priced based on double occupancy rooms or cabins. We charge solo travelers an extra fee to cover the extra costs of single occupancy rooms or cabins. (Consider: if you booked a $200/night hotel room solo, you would pay the $200 yourself; but if a couple booked the same room, each one would pay only $100.) But you only pay extra for the rooms or cabins, nothing else, including meals, sightseeing, tips, etc. Why are single rooms more?

Flights & Departure Cities

Departure Airports
Miami (MIA) included

This package includes round-trip flights from the city listed above. Please review the flight schedule, especially if you're booking connecting flights.

Want to fly from another city? We can arrange flights from most major cities. Ask us for a quote for flights from your preferred city when (or after) you book, and we'll get back to you with the price and availability within 3 business days. Of course, you can also book your own flights. More information

Plaza de la Catedral, Old Havana Photo by Jacqueline Romano

After breakfast, your expert guide will lead you on a leisurely walk through the labyrinthian streets of Old Havana. Immerse yourself in the vibrant colors of Cuba while walking along the cobblestone streets and explore the four beautiful plazas of the Old City – Plaza de Armas, Plaza San Francisco, Plaza Vieja, and Plaza de la Catedral - each a historic and architectural gem.

Among the private businesses you'll discover during your walk, Clandestina is one shop that is making plenty of waves both in Cuba and abroad. This shop was founded by Idania del Río and Leire Fernández, two creative, entrepreneurial women who believe in a sustainable, fair, and ethical fashion industry. Clandestina is the country's first online clothing retailer and has even appeared as a pop-up store in New York. Afterward, enjoy lunch at a local paladar or private restaurant.  

Then, visit the private studio of one of Cuba's talented independent artists.

Step into Cuba's world of music and dance with a private dance class. First, experience Cuba's most traditional dances through a demonstration by your talented and personable teachers. Learn how important music and dancing are to life in Cuba. Then, learn the basic steps and try Cuban dancing for yourself.

Return to the casa and enjoy dinner on your own. We recommend dining at a paladar for a delicious Cuban dinner. Please choose one from the list we provide or ask your guide for any additional recommendations.

El Encanto de Perseverancia or similar Breakfast & lunch

Full Day Itinerary
Muraleando

This morning, drive to the quaint fishing village of Cojimar, which served as the setting for Ernest Hemingway's masterpiece The Old Man and the Sea.

Then, learn the secrets of the Cuban kitchen and participate in a traditional Cuban cooking class. Begin your experience by meeting the staff of the paladar, Café Ajiaco, who will guide you on your culinary journey. First, stop at the paladar’s “organopónico” (organic garden) to see where their products and ingredients grow. Pick some for yourself and bring them back to the restaurant to create your dishes. Then, the experienced chefs of Café Ajiaco will teach you the process of making some of Cuba’s most delicious traditional food and an authentic Cuban mojito, and how to pair rum with cigars.

Enjoy lunch courtesy of your morning cooking activity.

This afternoon visit Muraleando, where art, music, and community spirit have transformed a once-drab neighborhood into one of beauty and color. See garden sculptures, paintings, mosaics, and recycled materials transformed into stunning and colorful artwork. It is remarkable how the project's beautiful murals have resurrected the neighborhood's appearance and pride. The center also provides free workshops for the community, including voice lessons, drumming, dance classes, ceramic art, painting, cinematography, and much more. In addition, Muraleando helps to inspire and cultivate artistic skills in children from the entire neighborhood and has won awards in Cuba for being the most effective community project in the country.

Stop at Havana's independent Artisans Market, where you will be able to engage with local private artisan stands and find plenty of souvenirs, including handicrafts, posters, and other collectibles.

Afterward, learn about the history of Cuban cigars as you witness a cigar-rolling demonstration.

El Encanto de Perseverancia or similar Breakfast, lunch & dinner

Full Day Itinerary
Mosaics, Fusterlandia

After breakfast, visit Callejon de Hamel, the shortest street in Havana, decorated with fanciful objects referencing Santería, an Afro-Cuban religion fusing African beliefs and Christianity. Marvel at the murals by one of Cuba’s most famous artists, the late Salvador Gonzáles Escalona. A local guide will help you explore the area, introduce you to some of the artwork on display and explain Santería's beliefs, customs, and how it is part of Cuban culture.

Later, walk along Havana's renovated San Rafael Boulevard, visiting with multiple private entrepreneurs along the way. The boulevard hosts some of Havana's most innovative projects and one-of-a-kind shops. Behind every private business is a progressive individual or co-op excited to share a bit about their journey in the Cuban private sector and their passion and enthusiasm for what they do. After, experience one of Cuba's typical farmer's markets ("agromercados"). Glimpse into the daily life of Cuban people shopping for fruits, vegetables, beans, and spices based on what is available to them that particular day.

After lunch at a local paladar, take a walk in Jaimanitas, a neighborhood unlike any you have ever seen, where you'll discover a wonderland of mosaic art created by independent artist Jose Fuster. Known worldwide for his intricate works made of colorful tiles, Fuster has covered his house and an entire neighborhood in mosaic murals of cultural, historical, and whimsical designs. With a bit of luck, you might even encounter the often-barefoot artist on his house's glistening, multicolored patio, hard at work on his latest project.

Visit a children's community project in Havana before returning to your casa to rest before dinner.

Then, travel back in time by taking a tour in one of Havana’s classic American cars. You will get some picturesque views of Havana from your incredibly maintained automobile and arrive at dinner in style.

Tonight, join your fellow travelers at a farewell dinner at one of our favorite paladars.
