We couldn't stay with Rigo and Raisa, as they were fully booked for New Year's Eve, but Rigo was fantastic about emailing back and forth till he found us a good nearby place (Deisy's House). Our family of four was comfortable and enjoyed Deisy's. She's hospitable and organized, and made a great breakfast. Clean and very central for Habana Vieja,... More

They give you the best tips and advise to visit the city and also for the rest of our trip in Cuba. The place is a beautiful colonial house really close to Habana Vieja, really... More

We stayed in Rigo's house for four nights. It was a nice experience. Nice breakfast, clean room, good location, great people. They were helpful if you needed advice or any help. It was our first time in Cuba, if we have a chance to go back, definitely we will go there to stay with them again.

And we stayed at really good houses in the other cities we went to. We were staying there our last two nights in Cuba as well, and couldn't... More

You can ask to Rigo all questions by e-mail and the latest 1 day later Rigo will answer you. We stayed Rigo's house during 5 days at the end... More

We had a wonderful time at this casa particular in Havana! A nice, clean and very charming place located in central Havana with the most amazing hosts, Rigo and his family, I have ever met! Rigo is like the guide book you always wished for; he knows everything and on top of that, he is extremely helpful!

This was the first Casa particular we booked. The very nice host Rico helped us plan our whole trip and gave super nice advise and tips. We can highly recommend this very cool casa. I doubt you will find a better place in the area. And as a very big plus Rico speaks English. We did unfortunately not speak that... More
