Ivan Garcia, an independent journalist in Havana, wrote about the subject earlier this month. His story appeared in El Mundo. An excerpt is below:
...making loving in decent conditions in 21st-century Havana is a luxury. Before 1989, there was an extensive network of motels, known in Cuba as posadas. They were unobtrusive, inexpensive and air conditioned. They sold sandwiches and drinks. They were open 24 hours. And for young couples, married couples or unfaithful partners who live in overcrowded conditions and have no privacy, the only option was to go to these motels to have sex.Link:
But in 1990, with the arrival of the Special Period, a crisis that has lasted 21 years, the posadas, among other things, have quietly disappeared. The most common on the island is for four different generations to live together under one roof. Having a single room is a convenience that few enjoy. Even young couples, when they have children, tend to sleep with them in the same room.
