Planning on traveling to Havana soon? Well, on April 2, international travelers have the option to stay in Cuba using Airbnb.
Only U.S. citizens were allowed to book lodging in Cuba with Airbnb. But as President Barack Obama was en route to the country Sunday, Airbnb announced that, with special approval from the U.S. Treasury Department, soon non-U.S. citizens can do the same.
But all U.S. travelers have to be visiting Cuba for one of 12 reasons as outlined by the Obama administration in 2014. These reasons include family visits, research and humanitarian projects.
