At night you’ll meet instructors at the Salsa Club 1830, for a concert at Casa de Musica Miramar, or for a night dancing in the open air of the rooftop bar at Hotel Inglaterra.

This is what we recommend to most travelers as it allows you more opportunities to experience daily life in Cuba, supports locals, and is often a richer experience than staying in hotels.

That said, we can make arrangements for independent apartments and standard to boutique high-end hotels depending on your preferences.  Prices may vary.
