Why rent a house in Miramar is more expensive? Easy: because staying at Miramar is a pleasure. The best and nicest lodging houses in Havana are here. Miramar is the luxury area of Havana. Impressive mansions (the best are now embassies and consulates), representative offices of foreign companies, shops and good restaurants and, as it could not be otherwise, the best rental houses dedicated to tourist accommodation. The lodging houses here are more expensive, yes. But they are also much better. If you can afford it … there is no doubt: stay in Miramar. It is much quieter, more secure, more elitist, more flirty and much better taken care of than other areas of Havana.
