Book apartments in Cuba with Airbnb

Well, finally the relationship between USA and Cuba is recovering. For the first time after over 60 years USA and Cuba have started diplomatic relationship and new trade agreements.

Starting from July, new aerial routes and direct flights will be available and a lot of american tourists will be soon free to visit Cuba with no limitations. According to Forbes “..Ranging in price from $400-$500, except for the New York flights which are between $800-$900”

What is AirBnB

Among the American tech companies that are beginning a commercial relationship with Cuba there’s Netflix and AirBnB. AirBnB is a website where you can book private rooms or entire apartments. The company is one of the hottest startup in Silicon Valley and it’s today a billion dollar company. Actually it is evaluated over $10 billion!


You can literally book any kind of place (even tree houses) and anywhere in the world. The booking process is simple: you select your arrival, number of people, numbers of nights and you are done. The host will receive your request and will decide to approve or not your reservation.

It is very safe since each account is verified and AirBnB keeps the money as guarantee until you have successfully arrived in the place you have booked.

My Experience

I always stay in my wife’s apartment when I visit Cuba, but I have personally helped people book an apartment using AirBnB (the one above) several times without any issue. The best place to stay in Havana is the Old city.


I am an AirBnB afecionados and I have used it several times in the USA and Europe. Once you book your stay you can easily talk with the host and setup everything you need before your arrival.

Another good thing about AirBnB is also the relationship you can establish with the host. When I went to New York I stayed a month in a shared apartment and the owner became a good friend of mine.
