1. 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.

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

2.  Is it legal to rent a private house in Cuba? What about Varadero beach?

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.

4.  Will I have to share the private home with other tourists?

In some cases, where more than one bedroom is available and the bedrooms are inside the house or apartment, sharing common areas with the Cuban family, the other bedrooms may be rented to other guests. If this should be an inconvenience, please look in the directory for the accommodations with private entrance. If you do not find the accommodation with private entrance with the conditions that you are looking for, please contact us and ask us what you need. We have contacts with many other similar accommodations that may be available

10. Is there anyone going to meet me at the Havana airport?

Yes, upon your arrival at Havana airport someone of our staff will be meeting and leading you to the booked acommodation. For Havana is now available on Cuba-Particular.com a welcome service at the airport; if you like to meet a person of our staff directly at Havana airport to take you, by taxi, to the house you booked, simply fill in the form with the relevant data.

11. How do I pay for my reservation? Who should I pay for my reservation? Do I need to make a down payment ?

You pay in cash when you get to the accommodation and you pay directly to the landlord. You can either pay in advance for the total of booked days or pay at the end. There must have been cases, specially when booking for many days, when we might ask to do a downpayment to be able to reach an acceptable level of commitment for both parties.
