Street art in Havana


In Havana, Cuba we know these different types of street art. Modern and old painted or pinched images on walls and houses. The oldest images are of the Cuban state and consist of revolutionary texts and images of the leaders of the revolutionary movement, such as: Fidel, Ché, José Marti. In recent years we have seen an increase in real street art, which comes from the inspiration of free spirits. Below you can see some examples of both expressions.What do you like most!

Great place casa Havana


great place, well equipped with Pieter giving some great communication. if living in Central Havana is your desire this is a wonderful place. it might be a shock if this is your 1st time visit to this amazing city, but within a day you will know the neighbours and realize how safe and friendly Havana generally is. Wifi park up the street, two relatively moderate priced restaurants around the corner. then two upscale ones further down the street. but generally you are in the middle of it all. thanks Pieter

Casa Havana likes Ernesto


And you? El Che is still present in Cuba fifty years after his death. You can find it on murals and on signs with revolutionary propaganda. At T-shirts and all kinds of other tourist knick-knacks feature the portrait of El Che, often with the famous photo of Alberto Korda. Men’s and women’s bodies are decorated here with tattoos of their hero.

For many Cubans, Che was the only real revolutionary and their symbol of the struggle for justice (la lucha). He stood for a society without classes and exploitation. He did not want to make any concessions. After the revolution, under his leadership, Batista supporters (the deposed president and vassal of America) were shot dead in the fort La Cabana without a decent process. His and Fidel’s determination almost led to a nuclear war between USZ and the former Soviet Union, when the Russian, with permission from Cuba, stationed missiles on the island.

El Che had to pay the price for his ideals with his death in Bolivia (1967). His body and that of his Cuban comrades lies in the impressive mausoleum of Villa (Santa) Clara.

Two bikes in casa Havana – casa Guantanamera


Did you know that we have two bicycles available for our guests? Two MTBs. A large one and a small one.
If you rent our house, you can use it free of charge.
Cycling in Havana is not dangerous. The traffic takes good account of you.
Make sure you avoid the holes in the road.
And of course, lock your bike. Havana is extremely safe, but you should not ask ‘the gods, of course.’ Have fun!

Casa Havana – A whole apartment with great hospitality


“Whole apartment at your disposal. Great hospitality from the hosts. Breakfast offered for 4 CUC per person. Late check-in was not a problem. 15-20 minutes walk to the city center. Relatively loud neighborhood but this is the case almost everywhere in Center Havana. The hosts gave us valuable advises about where to go and did a great job assisting the organization and carry-out of our trip to Vinales and to the airport. You’ll find a lot of useful information about the city of Havana, places to eat and emergency telephone numbers in the apartment. Local telephone device available in the flat. You live in the middle of the neighborhood with local people which gives you real feeling about the day-to-day live of the Cubans. All in one: very good place to stay, very good communication with the hosts, we were very pleased to stay there.”
