What you'll do

A visitor can arrive in Cuba through traditional tourism channels, but may lose a sense of the reality standing right in front of him or her. Spending time with a professor and entrepreneur deeply involved in Cuban current issues will help reveal the mysteries of the local economy and private sector. We would love to invite you to a walk through Vedado, a neighborhood of contrasts where our Alma Mater, the University of Havana, is located. We will visit the main campus, see the local private sector flourishing around it, and we'll also witness the contrast with the still overwhelming state-owned sector. We will cover topics as the challenges for the local entrepreneurs, the dual currency system, the education and labour market... Bring your questions and we promise you, no mystery will remain!
Other things to note

I studied economics at the University of Havana and became a professor and, later, an entrepreneur. I've always been passionate about the development of my country, and I am a believer in the potential of the private sector. Now I'm leading a team of economists, including university professors and entrepreneurs focusing in property management and the developing of this revealing Experience on the Cuban economy. We would love you to join to our Experience, and invite you to stay at our wonderful listings (click on my profile to see all our places).
