ALERT FOR U.S. TRAVEL AGENTS: Floodgates to Cuba are already open
July 25, 2013 It was three years ago That acerca experts in the travel industry were
acerca predicting three to five million Americans would make a mad rush
to Cuba in the first year the forbidden island opens for U.S. tourism.
This observation was posted to Central Agent Thetravel blog today.
Three years later, I think lowering Those experts May be Those figures to
bit. And it's not Because the desire by Americans to see the unspoiled
destination has wavered. It's Because by the time travel to Cuba is made
legal, many Americans May have Already been there - and legally for that
It Appears as though tour operators are starting to get the hang of this
People-to-People initiative, something still did several operators
follow accordingly when it was first introduced. The People to People
education program is an initiative That Requires Americans to take part
culture in various experiences in Cuba, Essentially, as the name
IMPLIES, putting them in direct contact With The people of Cuba with
hopes of learning about the way of life in the country.
It was Implemented by President Clinton in 1999 and suspended by
President Bush in 2004 before President Obama resurrected the program
During his first term. Insight Cuba got the ball rolling in 2011. After
Insight Cuba Became the first licensed operator to sell Cuba through the
People-to-People initiative, other operators joined suit, treats including
Collette Vacations, National Geographic Expeditions and International
But Requirements were tightened last year after criticism That many of
the trips were masking recreational tourism to the Communist island.
Cuban-American Republican Sen. Marco Rubio of Florida Criticized the
government for approving licenses for groups That included activities
like salsa dancing.
But even the operators who failed at Their First cracks of sending
clients to Cuba have refined Their programs to Adhere to the tighter
restrictions. Back in 2011, Globus was looking into sending U.S. clients
to Cuba in 2012 on religious tours approved by the Center for Caribbean
Religion and Culture. Those plans, however I, were scrapped after the U.S.
Department of the Treasury Began These cracking down on operators who
Their licenses were getting from.
