Hello, my name is Pototo, the former Cuba Junky “Man in Havana”
I have just started this website to continue with the job that I have been doing for the last 9 years. The main purpose of the website is to assist with your trip to Cuba.
We specialize in booking ‘casas particulares’ (accommodation in private houses) all around Cuba, City tours in Havana, overnight tours from Varadero to Havana and much more!
Just email us with your query and we will do our best from this side of the world. The way we work is totally personal and the recommendations we make will be tailor-made to suit your requirements. You will always receive a personal reply to you enquiry not an automatic response.
If you require accommodation in a ¨casa particular¨ we will arrange everything directly with the owner on your behalf. Our bookings are 99% successful but in the unlikely event there is a problem our commitment is to find you another house in the same neighbourhood with similar standards, plus a 10% discount on the original price! That is our promise!
Most of the ¨casas particulares¨ we work with have the following basic standards; Air Conditioner, private bathroom with hot water, double or twin beds and minibar.
The average price for our houses is 30 CUC per room per night in Havana and Varadero and 25 CUC in other cities. Note the prices are per room and not per person and just include the accommodation, you can order Breakfast in the house and sometimes Dinner as well. Prices for Breakfast vary from 3 to 5 CUC per person depending on the location and what they serve. Prices for Dinner start at around 8 CUC per person.
All payments will be made directly to each house on arrival, and as we said earlier house owners will hold the room for you in the same way we trust that you will show up at the booked house.
Besides the services we offer if you have any questions about Cuba or your trip just ask, it will be my pleasure to help you in any way that I can.
Amongst other very good friends I wish to thank Rob O’Neil for some of the pictures used on this site and to Randy for his help with the server.
