A casa particular is the best value accommodation tourists and travellers in Cuba can get. The government based in Havana allowed private residents to rent spare rooms to visitors or tourists from abroad in 1997. Before this, all the hotels and campsites were owned by the regime and were quite costly. A casa particular in Havana subsequently became one of the first forms of private enterprise granted in the country.
