Norman y Jean loved the Casa Antiqua
"Retired Canadian seniors travelled to 7 provinces (ViaZul) - 18 days in Cuba - 3 day wedding in Cancun. Headquarters and travel to all areas recommended and reserved by Horatio. A great host with a wealth of information and great connections with similar Casas. Stayed in Havana 4 nts to start - then away for 7 nts - back for 1 nt - off to Mexico for 3 nts - back to Casa Antiqua for 1 nt - off to Vinales for 2 nts - final 2 nts at Casa Antiqua. Stored one Large Suitcase at Horatio's and kept coming back to change clothing. This is definitely the way to see the country, experience the hospitality and be welcomed into each home you visit. Planning to return to explore the eastern part of the Island. We highly recommend staying in Trinidad - taxi-ing to Playa Alcon beach - enjoying $1 beer and $1 pizza from the Snack Bus and sharing the same beach as the all-inclusive crowd paying $300-$400 per day at the Playa Alcon Hotel (wiped-out by Hurricane Dennis in 2005 - just reopened at Jan/07) - only stayed 3 days ! -"s&[email protected]" - Revelstoke BC Canada"

Stay here -amazing house!
"Casa Antigua was great. We stayed with Horatio and Marta for four days and they looked after us very well and even invited us to their daughters wedding!
The house was so beautiful - rooms were spacious - much bigger than the hotel we stayed in Havana Vieja. Only problem was that it is about 5km from Havana Vieja so we had to get a taxi there - but this is cheap and considering you are paying much less for a casa I would still reccommend staying there."

Great stay at Casa Antigua
"Casa Antigua was our first experience of staying in a casa particular and it couldn't have been a more delightful introduction to this unique way of visiting Cuba.
The house itself was so gracious and expansive; our rooms were comfortable and furnished quite beautifully. Breafasts were a real treat.
However, the real bonus was our host! Horacio was unfailingly helpful, spending much time to orient us on the city, giving us invaluable tips on where to visit, the best value restaurants, where to hear the best music. A great storyteller, Horacio gave us so much insight into the Cuban way of life.
Thankyou, Horacio and Marta, you made our visit very special. Expect us back very soon!"
