hey there

We’re José and Carley Rojas Avila, the creators behind Home to Havana. We’re here to share our top travel tips and destination guides to help you feel at home in travel, no matter where you’re headed. 

José is from Havana, Cuba, and Carley is from the United States, but we met while living as expats in Ecuador.

Travel has changed our lives – now, we share what we’ve learned about travel, living abroad, and digital nomad life to help you plan your next adventure.

fun facts
  • We went on our honeymoon to India. We spent about three weeks there, but we feel like we didn’t even scratch the surface of what India has to offer!
  • We’re real-life 90-Day fiancés (who else watches this guilty pleasure?!). José came to the U.S. on the fiancé visa in 2016 and is now a U.S. citizen.
  • José used to work as a radio host in Cuba and appeared as an extra in several Cuban telenovelas.
  • Where to next? Carley says Guatemala, and José says Israel… but if you’re a tourism board or travel brand who’d like us to promote your destination, get in touch!
