When I left the story of the details of Cuban lodging Charlie and I were on our way back to Havana from Viñales in a taxi collectivo.
We road for 111 miles in a red 4-door station wagon with 5 other people. Our luggage was packed onto the roof rack.
We were dropped off around 4 p.m. at the door of our new casa particulare, La California, on Crespo near the eastern end of the Malecón in old Havana. We rang the bell and were shown to our room.
We climbed a long staircase to the second floor.
Our room was the largest we had since we arrived in Cuba.
The en suite bathroom was was also the most modern and largest one we had while in Cuba.
We were within walking distance of the capitol building and the old part of the city.
The next morning for 5CUC ($5) each were were served an enormous breakfast in the downstairs dining room.
I had arranged for our living accommodations through AirBnB months before. We stayed for 2 nights at the rate of $33 per night.
As before our hostess and waitress arranged for a taxi to take us back to Jose Marti Airport to catch our flight back to the U.S.
We had a great week in Havana.
Where’s your next trip?
