Private accommodation in Cuba has increased services and scope according to data from the American company Airbnb, specialized in tourism in private homes.
This report was posted today in the Cubadebate website, and reflects the growing spiral of the recreational industry of this country.

Airbnb, based in California, has already sent more than 560,000 visitors to Cuba since it presented its service to the island on April 2nd, 2015.

According to the report, Airbnb sent more visitors to the Caribbean nation last year, than all it managed to host in the United States in its first year of operation (2008-2009). The level of monthly visitors to Cuba in 2017, managed by the firm, exceeds 70,000.

This unprecedented growth shows no signs of falling, the company says. Cuba is the fastest growing country in the world, based on the existence of 22,000 accommodations linked to Airbnb services, for 70 Cuban cities and towns.

Havana is the seat of the largest number of spaces with Airbnb contracts, about 13,000 (more than Austin, Houston, San Francisco, Boston, San Diego and Chicago). Other popular cities are Trinidad (2,000 accommodation in list) and Viñales (about 1,000).

Demands to travel to Cuba continue to rise, the report insisted, according to which, this nation was in 2017 the ninth most popular destination on Airbnb for U.S. travelers, above Australia, Germany, the Netherlands or Thailand.

The states with the most reserves were: California (21 percent), New York (20), Florida (11), Texas (4.3), Illinois (3.9) and Massachusetts (3.1).
