Thanks to recent reforms, Cubans have gained many newfound freedoms: they can go on holidays abroad, buy a new car or... start their own company. Many are taking full advantage of the latter: recently overhauled private restaurants, hip cocktail bars and creative boutique hotels are blossoming in Havana.

They drive tourists around in their vintage cars, organise tours or open up cafés or restaurants. Visitors benefit most from this new economic buzz in the capital.
