Cuba has been somewhat frozen in time since the 1950s as far as U.S. travelers are concerned, but all that could be changing soon – so it is a great idea to start thinking about your upcoming trip to this Caribbean island! It is, in fact, the biggest island in the Caribbean – and there are plenty of historic sights, amazing food, and legendary nightlife. While tourism from the U.S. has been strictly limited in the recent past, tourists have been enjoying the island for years, so there are lots of cheap hotels in Cuba to choose from.
Your options when searching for cheap hotels in Cuba include things you might not think about when looking for lodging in other parts of the world. If you are really on a tight budget, often the cheapest way to go is to book a room in a private home (called casas particulares) – it is one part B&B and one part guest house, and you will find them all over Cuba. Not only do they offer a great deal, you will get to meet the locals, too. In the larger towns and cities you will find more plentiful choices for more traditional hotels, including many that are restored colonial mansions.
