Capitalist Enterprise Airbnb Expands to Sunny Cuba

Starting today, Airbnb will begin offering properties for rent in Cuba, which has seen an upsurge in interested visitors ever since the U.S. and Cuba signed a historic agreement to restore diplomatic ties and ease sanctions last December. Airbnb is one of the first U.S. companies to expand to Cuba, and the move comes after the U.S. decided to lift most travel restrictions to the Caribbean island in late January (although inconveniently, tourism is still not permitted). The roughly 1,000 rentals now on offer include colonial-era villas, modest rooms with antique furniture, and brightly painted student apartments.

Here's what you'll find. >>
