There's a reason why Maura is the first place Tripadvisor suggests to go in Habana.
It's not only for the location, just beside the Museum of the Revolution, at the borders of Habana Vieja and near the Malecon.
It's not only for the place, immersed in the true Cuban house
It's mainly for Maura, one of the most wonderful person we've met in Cuba. Want to know how wonderful? Read this.
We stayed our first night in Cuba, then we began a tour of the island, returning to her place in Habana after several days. We payed just the first night.
The next morning she called a taxi for us for the airport, and told us that taxi drivers never give change for the ride (it's 25CUC) and to be prepared with the exact money. We didn't have a 5CUC bill, just 10 ones, she didn't have change so she gave us 5CUC in small cash, to avoid to give more money to the taxi driver.
She just trusted us to get her money back after those days.
You can tell where in the world those things happen?
Great Maura, keep on!
