I would highly recommend that each of you book your own RT travel through American Airlines.

You can find more information about the flights, such as departure and arrival times, baggage allowance, seat selection, etc on the American Airlines website. You can also book your tickets online or contact their customer service for assistance.

You can ask your AirBnB host to arrange transportation from the Airport to your AirBnB. So upon arrival, after clearing customs, head out to the Taxi stand and look for a driver with your name and AirBnb. In the event of any miscommunication, make sure you have a typed-out address, on paper or your phone, in both English and Spanish, as to your AirBnB address, so you can use, on your own, if necessary, to catch a cab to your AirBnB (just show the cab driver the printed address). The one-way fare should be, approximately, $30.00. It’s fine to pay in USD dollars as most cabbies like

We recommend a place in Old Havana, near the Bodeguita del Medio, the Floridita or La Catedral de la Habana.

If you wish, we can send you some AirBnB suggestions that fit the locations you want.

You will pay, on your own

  • Airport Transfer (roughly $30.00 each way)
