What are casas particulares?
Cuba’s version of B&Bs offer the island’s best lodging values for anyone who likes doing things authentically, or in this case: the Cuban way. You can find hundreds of casas in this app. They are rooms, suites, or sometimes entire apartments. The Cuba-Junky casa directory app is current, convenient, and easy to use. It provides casa photos, phone numbers, email addresses, Facebook and website links—all for about US $5!
Online, offline and more
But there is more. The casa particular directory app is very frequently updated at no extra charge. And you can access other types of info through the app, such as the weather forecast, or use it to contact your casa.
No commission: save $5 per night!
By using this app and contacting a casa directly, you often save the $5 per night commission that the owner normally charges for bookings made through a third party. Casa owners pay no commission or other costs to Cuba Junky. Say this to the casa owner and get that discount!
Some free Cuba advice?
Cuba-Junky’s advice is: make a reservation for your first night in Cuba and after that just “go with the flow.” Using your Cuba-Junky casa particular app, it will be easy to find casas while in Cuba, or to call ahead to a casa in the next town you plan to visit. You can talk to the owner directly, find out what’s available, and at what price.
Why does this app cost about $5?
Just because Cuba Junky have to keep it running. We charge no hidden $5 per night commission. We just love Cuba. If you do too, go and enjoy it, and while you’ re at it, help us keep Cuban locals in the lead! ¡Gracias amigos!

Ratings and Reviews
This is a scam as far as I’m concerned
I paid, downloaded the app and sent my casa particular submission since January 4th. I’m still waiting for the place to be added to the Casas particulares inventory. I contacted the people in charge a week after I downloaded the app and I got an answer that they would add my place whenever they work on my geographical area. I tried contacting them again about a month later in February and didn’t get any answer and it’s March 8th and I’m still waiting.
I have used this app twice now to find casa when I went to Cuba. It’s the most comprehensive listing of hostels and it allows you to contact them directly rather than through a booking service which will charge you additional fees. Sometimes a lot more fees and the money does not go to the families. It’s not always perfectly updated but then neither is anything else to do with Cuba. The small amount you pay to buy the app will last you forever and it’s an excellent resource. I’m using it right now to plan another trip.
It’s great for what it is
I think the low reviewers are expecting more out of this app than is reasonable. No it’s not a fancy piece of software. Some Dutch tourists who have visited Cuba and happen to have minimal ability in creating an app made a VERY useful directory. I haven’t found a listing this straightforward of the Casas and other tourist info for Cuba anywhere else. They’ve provided a service, and for my that was worth the $5.
