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.

Another 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 forced to follow the routinary life we are used to live in a hotel, and so you feel you are still at home.

The third benefit is that yes, in private accommodations you are allowed to bring Cuban guests and friends and even they are allowed to stay overnight. Please notice that they must not be under age and they must provide the house owner their full name and ID # to write it down in the book. Cubans are not allowed to enter hotel rooms in Cuba

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 now legal that Cuban citizens rent their private homes to foreign tourists. Enjoy Varadero beach, one of the most beautiful beaches in Cuba!!
