Try Cuba Direct Tours This Spring


Cuba Direct has launched a new app that is designed to help casas (guest houses) in Cuba distribute the availability of their properties to tour operators in real-time, using one single application. Due to local internet connectivity problems, homestay owners have previously struggled to manage their bookings online, which is why Cuba Direct has created an app that casa owners can use on their mobile phones without needing access to the internet

Another benefit of the app is that it stores a database of casas available and keeps it updated in real time through an sms system. The TalCasa app will not only improve the infrastructure of Cuba’s homestay market, but will also increase business for the casa owners, who can now maximise their property’s availabilityCuba Direct has also launched a new package that combines the destinations of Cuba and Costa Rica. Tapping into the current trend for twin-country holidays, the new package offers travellers the chance to embrace Cuba’s rich history and colourful culture before experiencing some of the world’s most bio-diverse and unspoiled landscapes in Costa Rica. The new package is currently available for £1,289 for ten nights (two people sharing), offering a £300 discount per person if booked before 30 September 2018, making it the perfect way for travellers to maximise their time and budget!
