The airy three-story rental house on the outskirts of Havana would seem to have all the luxury attributes a cosmopolitan tourist might want: elegant appliances, high-end artwork, a rooftop plunge pool and ocean views.
Yet it is lacking one critical amenity, an absence that has become a deal breaker for some prospective clients: Wi-Fi.
“It’s ridiculous to have to turn away a potential client just because of a lack of internet,” lamented the house’s owner, Leandis Díaz, 47. “Everyone who comes to Cuba wants to use the internet — that’s normal.”
