Host family

We advise accommodation in host families. The selected host families live in spacious homes in a nice residential part of the town: Reparto Vedado. Though it is mainly a quiet area, there are several nice bars and discotecs. Vedado is aprox. 40-45 minutes walking distance or aprox. 15 minutes by bicycle taxi from the old town of Havana. The families offer single and double rooms with half board (breakfast and dinner). Double rooms are only possible for two persons travelling together. Dinner is between 18.30 - 20.00. All rooms have air-conditioning or a fan and some have a private bathroom. Laundry is not included. The host family can take care of the laundry for a small charge.

StudyTravel offers you the opportunity to learn Spanish in Havana, the seductive capital of Cuba. Havana has a population of 2.3 million making it the largest and arguably the most vivacious Caribbean city. Although culturally eclectic Havana has a predominately Spanish and Latin feel, which is just one reason why people choose to learn Spanish in Havana. Music and dance are very important parts of life here, with Habaneros (inhabitants of Havana) singing and dancing long into the night - and we are pretty sure you will too! The main point of recognition in Havana is the famous boulevard, "de Malecón".
