Cuba offers, apart from hotels, accommodation in private homes.
You can choose between:
Independent apartments. Exclusively for the tourist. It usually has a bedroom, living room, kitchen and sometimes a terrace, balcony and garden.
This form of rent gives you more privacy since, it is as if you were in your own apartment, with all the comforts and totally independent.
Bedrooms. For your own use you have a bedroom and a bathroom. The rest of the rooms are for shared use with a Cuban family. These can be the living room, the kitchen or the terrace among others.
These have a badge on the door that tells us that it can accommodate foreign tourists.
Renting apartments or rooms when traveling has become fashionable in recent years.
Among its advantages we can highlight:
1- The average rental price of these is lower than that of the hotels.
2- You can have a much wider offer of houses to stay. Not only in central areas, but also in the periphery, in other cities, in towns or on the beach. You can choose a street, a neighborhood or a specific area.
3- You will have more space, since the apartments are larger than the rooms of the hotels.
4- In case of rooms you will stay in a family house that can advise you of places to eat and places to visit. They will give you more information than a tour guide can give you when it comes to moving around the area.
5- More privacy since you can enjoy your holidays as if you were in your own home. Many of them have kitchens if you want to prepare something or you can take precooked food from any restaurant and they have a lounge if you want to sit and relax while watching TV or listening to music.
6- You can get up at the time you want without having to think about what time they will go to clean the room. In the apartments usually every 2 or 3 days to clean and change the sheets.
7- You can have several rooms in the same apartment in case you go with family or friends and enjoy the holidays in company at all times and quietly organize the plans of the day, and if you want more privacy you can choose apartments that are nearby.
