Casas particulares — Cuba’s version of our B&Bs — offer the island’s best lodging values by far. Cuba-Junky’s casa particular directory—the first to be available as an app—provides information about hundreds of casas that rent rooms, suites, or sometimes entire apartments (all of which, in Cuba, go by the name of casa particular.) The Cuba-Junky casa directory app is current, convenient, and comprehensive. It provides casa photos, phone numbers, e-mail addresses, Facebook and website link.
Nothing could be more convenient than Cuba-Junky’s casa particular directory app. No matter where you are, you have at your fingertips an outstanding list of Cuban casas particulares—a great convenience in a country where internet is slow and wifi networks rare. Unlike casa listings in guidebooks which were typically compil ed two years or more ago, the casa particular directory app is current, as it is based on Cuba Junky’s own frequent trips around the island. Frequent updated will be made available at no charge.
The Cuba-Junky casa particular directory app can save you money. By having in hand the information you need to contact a casa directly, you can often save the $5 per night commission that the owner normally pay on bookings made through a third party. Casa owners pay no commission to Cuba Junky nor do they pay to have their place listed on the app; thus they are in a position to pass that savings on to you.
Cuba-Junky’s advice is: make a reservation for your first night in Cuba, and thereafter, “go with the flow.” Using your Cuba-Junky casa particular app, it will be easy, while in Cuba, to check out what casas are available in the area where you are, or to call ahead to a casa in the next town you plan to visit. You can talk to the owner directly, and find out what’s available, and at what price.
For an offline Cuba map purchase the free Galileo app and download the Google Cuba map within the app. There are many casas listed in this map.
