“Everything on the trip went very smoothly with a host of wonderful helpful casa owners. One thing that was a bit tricky was that our casa owner wasn’t there to meet us on our last night in Havana. When we called the number provided, a lady answered who said they had nothing to do with the agency. We eventually tracked the casa owner down but it was some worrying moments.”

All this casas were fantastic and in great locations, the drivers were all good and arrived on time. The whole trip was well organised. We thoroughly recommend Maayke to help to organise your Cuban experience.”

Both these neighborhoods are charming locations, especially Havana Vieja, which is located right in the middle of the city center. Vedado is more peaceful and quiet and just 10 minutes away by taxi from Havana Vieja.
