  • who spends more? a tourist on a 7/14 day vacation in a $100-$200/day hotel or a backpacker who spends $300-$500 week for 8 weeks? but there are no backpaker hotels/hostels in cuba. the ministry of tourism should do some simple mathematics. packpacker hotels make more money as a percentage of capital investment. it´s like a supermarket that sells strawberries but won´t sell raspberries. boysenberries, cranberries, blueberries and blackberries would also make money. there are any number of tourist groups apart from the traditional ones that the cuban ministry of tourism is concentrating on now. the ministry of tourism should do some research especially in the most sucessful tourism countries but no country does it perfectly and i see most of the mistakes.
