COLLADO BALDOQUIN, Natali; RUEDA GUZMAN, Luis Alberto; GONZALEZ COURET, Dania  y  LEMUS MESA, Karla Maria. Urban tourism The impact of tourist accommodation in residential buildings at Vedado, Cuba. Rev. interam. ambient. tur. [online]. 2020, vol.16, n.1, pp.35-48. ISSN 0717-6651.  http://dx.doi.org/10.4067/s0718-235x2020000100035.

Insufficient requirements for the accommodation of tourists in houses in addition to the absence of comprehensive development plans have generated negative impacts in buildings and cities. The aim of this paper is to evaluate the main implications of tourist accommodations in residential buildings in El Vedado, Cuba. The methodology applied for this paper commenced through the use of spatial mapping to identify registered licenses for renting in a geographic information system. Field work was subsequently carried out and architectural surveys undertaken. Referrals were made to original design plans which were obtained in archives and surveys. Interviews were also conducted through the use of 35 case studies. Among the main results obtained were the characterization of the selected buildings and their territorial distribution. The conclusion was that the negative impacts included the loss of urban architectural values due to incorrect building modifications as well as increased energy consumption. Notwithstanding, the study revealed that the accommodation of tourists in houses has resulted in increases in family income, new complementary public services introduced and the substantial improvement of the technical constructive state of many residential buildings.
