Cuban hospitality

Ruth Stone,

When visiting Cuba, tourists have two different options on where they would like to stay; a traditional hotel, which would be the obvious choice, or a “casa particular.” With Cuba being an impoverished country, why not get some real Cuban culture and explore what great wonders a “casa” can offer you? Casa particulars have only been existent since 1997, and since then, many people Cubans have renovated. Many natives running casas are great at giving out advice when it comes to places to eat, visit and explore. In this low-income state, why not help out families in need that are giving their hearts to have people from all around the world come to visit?
