I am getting the impression that even as an independent traveler I need to go through Pototo or Jorge in order to book a room in Havana. I'm fluent in Spanish so language is not a problem. I have seen reviews of all the nice Casa Particulares, but when it comes to get in touch with them, nada.
Is there a problem or the only way is going through Jorge and / or Pototo. I am traveling solo in Oct.
