Vastu in Cuba:
Vastu followers are very rare in Cuba Country. Generally, Indians have hugely followed Vastu Shastra. In Cuba Indian's were very less in number. We are unable to get the exact information about Indians in Cuba. We are curious to know how many Indians were living in Cuba. If anybody knows the exact information, please let us know. It will be useful for the future generations.
Herewith we will discuss some Vaastu points. Whether they may be important or not for Cubans.
Now, we are discussing overhead water tank. Generally, keeping the Overhead water tank at Southwest brings stability to the inhabitants.
Constructing the same at Northeast may bring misfortune.
When coming with keeping the heavy loaded water tank on the floor at Northeast of the Compound Wall may trouble the residents. When they need to keep it at the compound wall then the Southwest corner is excellent placement.
Don't dig the Southwest corner area to keep the tank below the ground level, this may hurt the residents and its very bad placement as per Vasthu.
We are unable to get the information about famous Vastu Experts here. If anybody knows about Vastu Pandit information, please let us know. We urge everybody please inform this website Vastu Tips to Indians living in Cuba.
West facing house vastu Most of the people never buy West facing houses. They thought that West facing homes may not bring luck. But this is not yet true. If vastu wise west facing home is built then it brings success, leadership, strength, power.
South facing house vastu When there is swimming pool at North direction to the South facing homes, then it will bring more money, peace, pleasure etc to the residents. One may plan pool at Northeast location or North direction for their South facing homes.
Types of Houses in Cuba
What comes into your mind when you hear about Cuba? Its beautiful culture, amazing people, Cuban cigars, Fidel Castro, or something else? Well, there is much to explore in the country. In case you don’t know about the country, let us give you a short intro.
Cuba is an island country based on several small and large islands.
The country sided with the Soviet Union in the Cold War and the Soviet Union even bases Nuclear Missiles in the country.
This even led to a disastrous military campaign against the US. Since then, due to several sanctions and embargoes, the economic condition of the country is worse.
Before the revolution in the country, Cuba was one of the wealthiest countries in Latin America.
The country used to export several items to other countries, especially the US. But today, the economic condition is worse and the people are not in a good condition.
These are rare or in some other words, we can say a unique type of house. Although, these are not the very stable type of houses yet they are best for the local climate.
These houses are made completely of royal palm trees and are very beautiful.
You will find these types of houses in different parts of the country, certainly near the beaches.
I don’t know much about these types of houses or exactly what they are but during my research, I have read at different places regarding the presence of these types of houses in Cuba.
It is not confirmed, but if we estimate roughly and from sources on the internet, these are congested houses with detached rooms and probably share the same facilities.
A tenement is a building that shares multiple dwellings.
These buildings are similar to flats and are found at different places in Cuba. However, the condition of tenement houses in Cuba is worse.
There is a detailed article on these tenement houses and you can visit it from here.
In short words, these tenement houses are very congested living spaces with worse conditions, small rooms, adequate supplies, and a lot of other hassles.
Cuba, authentically the “Republic of Cuba” is a sovereign country in the northern Caribbean. The country is compromised of the island of “Cuba”, Isla de la Juventud and several other Archipelagoes.
The country holds a vital and strategic location in the region overseeing all major shipping lanes. Apart from its people and culture, Cuba is famous for one of the few remaining Marxist-Leninist states and the infamous “Cuban Missile Crisis”.
Since the end of the Cold War, the situation in Cuba improved and the country has high human development, improved health care and education and a strong export-oriented economy. Also, the country is a member of the United Nations (UN), Non-Aligned Movement and Organization of American States.
Before the arrival of colonists, Cuba was inhabited by the local tribes of Taino, the Guanajatabey, and the Ciboney. These people migrated from Southern and Central America thousands of years ago. These people were dependent on farming and hunting.
The island was discovered by Christopher Columbus in 1492 and was soon colonized. Since then the local population gradually decreased as they were either killed, enslaved or died of diseases. A large number of African slaves were also brought in the island for sugar and coffee plantations. Due to the harsh Spanish government, freedom struggle started in the island backed by the USA by the end of 19th century.
After the Cuban-American War of 1898, Cuba finally got its independence on 1902. After the independence, Cuba didn’t have any government as it expected and was ruled by corrupt and military politicians. In 1959 rebel Army led by the famous “Fidel Castro” gained hold of the country and formed the new communist government.
During the times of Cold War, Cuba aligned to the Soviet Union and served as one of its forward bases. One of the famous events of that period was the “Cuban Missile Crisis” as the Soviets deployed its nuclear missiles in Cuba to retaliate US deployment of missiles in Italy and Turkey.
The led US and the Soviet Union on the brink of the nuclear war and US imposed an embargo and invaded Cuba. But luckily both countries reached an agreement and withdrew their elements. After the fall of Soviet Union funds coming from the Soviet Union got ceased and the country faced a major economic crisis.
Cuba lies on a strategic location in the Caribbean where the Gulf of Mexico, Atlantic Ocean, and the Caribbean Sea meet just south of the US state of Florida. Most of the area of Cuba features fertile plains. This is the reason it is suitable and regarded best for agriculture since the Colonial age.
Most of the economic sectors are state-owned as Cuba has a communist government. Almost 70% of the workforce is also employed by the state. Before the revolution of 1959, Cuba had one of the best and fastest growing economies and one of its main export partners was the US, but due to its alignment with USSR, the US imposed an embargo on Cuba.
The situation got worse when the USSR broke, and the funds for Cuba were ceased. Today the most reliable economic sectors are agriculture, small industries, and tourism. Agriculture sector dominates the exports of Cuba. Some of its best export products are Sugar, tobacco, and coffee. In terms of industrial products and process, Cuba produces some well renowned pharmaceutical products. Also, industrial sector accounts for 37% of its total GDP.
Christianity is the dominating religion of Cuba finding its roots back in the Spanish colonial rule. The state offers total religious freedom to all of its inhabitants. Also, a small community of Muslims and Jews live in Cuba. Spanish is the official language of Cuba and is known as “Cuban Spanish”.

We are tech professionals and working in USA. After a year long search we brought the house. After buying the house I started looking for consultant who can help me evaluating the house. I came across Subhavaastu website which has lot of information. I contacted Mr.Suresh and requested him to help with our house vastu. It has been an incredible delight working with him.. He is very detailed oriented person and never compromises with his work. I am typically not interested to deliver the reviews. But after working with Mr. Suresh I decided to share my experience. Mr. Suresh has great expertise in providing vastu consultation to USA property. He is always available through email and phone l to answer questions. I am writing this review hoping it will help other people like me who lives in abroad. Please take advise before buying the house. I highly recommend Mr. Suresh as he has great experience with structure of USA properties and also he provides genuine consultation. I really appreciate Mr. Suresh's help in evaluating our house - Padma - Boston - USA
"I contacted Sureshji to consult on our current home. He was spot on in identifying vastu dosha in regards to the problems we were having. He suggested remedies but we are still looking for a new house. Since then I have been in touch with him for finding a right home for us. He is very sincere and truly wishes better lives for everyone. He doesn’t compromise with quality and is always responsive to queries. He recommends solutions as per location as vaastu rules differ for each country. He is greatly contributing to the society with his knowledge of Vaastu Shastra and dedication towards his work. Keep up the good work Sureshji and wish you success and happiness!" - Megha - Virginia - USA
I have consulted Suresh Garu during December 2014 during the process of buying a house in Texas, USA. I have occupied the house for one year now, and feel like dropping a review regarding my experience during the entire process. I am very much satisfied with the kind of service I received from him. He is very knowledgeable and I was often stunned by his detailed analysis during the course of my interaction with him. He was very much accessible over phone (perhaps more than 10 times for one house plan!) and the price is very much reasonable especially compared with the cost of the house. I noticed his burning desire to help me in making informed decisions on certain things. I have seen some people pretending to know this subject and misguiding those who come for help by saying only what we want to hear. SubhaVaastu is definitely not that one. Finally, I am strong believer of leaving certain things to experts in those subjects. I have been in US for more than 13 years and have seen people doing their own corrections (by reading website articles) trying to save few dollars. Please don’t do that. You would end up in causing more damage. I highly recommend you to engage SubhaVaastu in your next project - Satish - Dallas - TX - USA
