Cuba: If you go
Getting there: The U.S. embargo on Cuba prohibits most U.S. citizens from entering the country.
However, there were at least four other Americans on my flight to Havana from Cancún; I heard them talking in the immigration line; they were discussing how to keep their visit to Cuba a secret.
As a courtesy, Cuban authorities won't stamp American passports, m...ss of the culture make it an appealing destination. Tourism will expand exponentially as soon as the U.S. embargo ends. Empty beaches beckon tourists and hotel developers alike.
A variety of factors -- from Fidel Castro's illness to the waning days of two Bush administrations (there's one in Florida, too) -- mean that changes in travel restrictions may come within the next couple of years.
Cuba is not prepared. Fla will not notice2010-08-02 20:25:39 by LuxuryTravelGuy
Cuba can not handle the tourism it has now from the rest of the world. Currently, Cuba receives 2.8 million visitors annually. Contracts are already in place to buy up all the "Americanized Rooms" when Obama signs the Bill. Most of the people who have pre-registered with this company for the rooms are from Florida. This affluent traveler would normally travel to Europe, the caribbean or c/s America not Florida. If you have not already joined the Club to get the best rooms in cuba then you will be left to scrap it out with Canadians and Europeans for the "Below Tourist Class" accommodations which will be left at VERY high prices.
