Hostal Calis

We have been asked about the accommodation that we provide for our tours… when we mention casa accommodation at first we are often met with a blank stare.. then we start by explaining private accommodation, then we quickly have to explain that it doesn’t meant that you will be trampling through someone’s living room… but saying air bnb style accommodation also doesn’t really describe what casas are like in Cuba..
So we decided to create a series of post our casas we use for your stay from Havana to Vinales to Cienfuegos, Trinidad and beyond…
Just like with all our tours, we start off in Havana! And today we bring you Hostal Calis
From your welcome cocktail to Concierge service, Bar, restaurant, free wi-fi, to room service, laundry, dry cleaning and even a massage they have you covered! If you wanted to, you could even bring your four legged best friend!
Do we have your attention yet?
