Stay in a Havana Hotel or Guest House

While this is an idea that is a little easier for non United States citizens it is possible and getting easier all the time. And while there are plenty of fancy resorts that replicate others on other Caribbean islands, Havana provides a travel opportunity distinctly different and fascination for families. 

While a hotel provides a safe and predictable stay, staying with a family in a B & B guest house allows you to see life how the Cubans see it every day.  This is a sure way to open up lines of conversation about lots of interesting and stimulating conversations about modern life. And you sure won’t have any problems with kids only wanting to eat junk food and hang out at the mall. If they do want to you are sure to enjoy the adventure as well. Cruise the streets and enjoy the treats and music as the Cuban children do.
