Make yourself at home while staying with a Cuban family.

Homestay is a wonderful way for students to improve their Spanish, gain confidence, learn more about Cuban culture and meet new people in a friendly environment.

Hosts will help you to settle into life in Santiago de Cuba, advise you of how to get acclimated to Cuban life and participate in the learning and welfare of our students.

Meal plans

You can choose from 3 different meal plans:

– Bed & Breakfast

- Half-board (breakfast and lunch or light evening meal)

-Full-board (breakfast, lunch, and light evening meal )

We also have a No Meals option for more independent students.

Students will eat whatever the family eats and help set the table or clear up after dinner.​ The host will provide room in the fridge and pantry to store any food that students may purchase.
