Échanges avec les voyageurs
My personal USP: I speak English, Spanish, French and German (and understand most of Italian). Usually my guests are glad to get some informations about the country and hints about travelling through Cuba.
But: I'm not always available, because my husband Rubén and I are travelling, too. In this case our nephew José and his friend Luis will welcome you. They mainly speak Spanish and still need to improve their English.
DON'T WORRY: We've got a very useful "Guesthouse La Isla - manual" about the most important questions and answers. Communication will not be a problem!
Bienvenidos in my art-guesthouse "La Isla" - feel yourself at home!
My name is Bettina, I come from Switzerland and I'm living in Cuba for several years now. My cuban husband Rubén is Holguíns most famous contemporary artist ( and the owner of Holguín's first private gallery, called "La Colonia". Of course you will find some of Rubéns paintings and sculptures in our guesthouse.
In 2016 we founded the international artists-in-residence-program "Cuba4Artists" ( So you might get in touch with interesting foreign artists, living in our house. Please let us know if you would like to participate in one of our private art-workshops (please note that you have to bring your own material).
As Rubén and I are very busy and like to travel too, we are glad to have our nephew José and his friend Luis who are always ready to welcome our guests. Both are fantastic facility managers and passionated cooks.
Are you ready to visit "La Isla"? We are looking forward to welcome you!
