Which is the benefit of renting a private house in Cuba ?
First we believe that most of those that travel these
days to Cuba are looking for a close contact with our beautiful
nature, our beaches, our culture, our music, and more importantly:
our people. So the best way to stay in direct contact with the Cubans,
our hospitality, get to know the way we live, the way we are, the
way we face everyday's troubles with a smile, is living among us.
This applies to those interested in renting a private accommodation
sharing common areas with the Cuban families.
advantage is that you can save some money if you rent in a private
accommodation. The average is cheaper than the State hotels, excluding
those private luxurious mansions with pool that are also available
for rent. Besides being in a private accommodation, you are not

and so you feel you are still at home.
third benefit is that yes, in private accommodations you are allowed
to bring Cuban guests and friends and even they are allowed to stay

Is it legal to rent a private house in Cuba? What about Varadero
Since 1997, the Cuban government allowed
the Cuban families to legally register their rental services for
foreigner tourists and thus they pay a license and taxes to the
Cuban government for this economical activity. It's indeed a legal
business in Cuba.
Regarding Varadero beach, it is not legal that Cuban citizens rent
their private homes to foreign tourists. For this reason, we strongly
encourage you to book in a State hotel if you want to enjoy Varadero
beach, one of the most beautiful beaches in Cuba.
