Accreditations

        Your Homestay fee includes:

  • Private bathroom 
  • Use of the house & outdoor areas
  • A quiet place to study
  • ​All the Spanish practice you can get with your host family
  • Participate in family life with social, cultural and leisure activities 
  •  Meet your family’s friends, neighbors,  and professional colleagues
  • Tea, coffee and fresh fruit are available at any time of day.


Staying with a host family will allow you to experience Cuban culture to the fullest extent possible and to practice Spanish in a natural setting.  All of the families we work with are carefully selected to meet the demanding standard we hold for our students and their safety and comfort. 
As a participant in the homestay program, you will become an extended family member of one of our host families. Students have their own private space as well as having time to socialize with the family. You are also encouraged to participate in family activities or outings.

​You can practice your Spanish, learn about Cuban culture, and develop bonds that will last a lifetime. Our host families are willing to give their time to you, helping you to feel comfortable and welcome. Before you leave home, you will receive the address and contact details and a profile of your host and their location.

Host Family Accommodatio​n​


You can choose from 3 different meal plans depending on whether you wish to share meals with your hosts or you prefer a more independent lifestyle – Bed & Breakfast, full-board (breakfast, lunch, and dinner ) or half-board (breakfast and dinner). Students will eat whatever the family eats and help set the table or clear up after dinner.

​Vegetarians or people with food allergies should let us know their eating options when booking so this can be shared with families before arrival.
​The host will provide room in the fridge and pantry to store any food that students may purchase.

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

If you need any more information before booking your course, please contact us using the contact form or just email euqueria@academiacaribe.com.
We will be happy to answer your questions, including providing price quotes for airport transfers and accommodation upgrades if required.
