One thought on “New Copa Airlines flight from Panama to Santa Clara, Cuba

  • As tourism has increased slightly every year in Cuba recently, there has been an even more dramatic increase in the ‘all-inclusive’ tour packages. This bodes well for the regime’s tourism companies but is bad news for the average Cuban hoping to get a slice of the tourism pie. Tourists more and more often will come to Cuba, stay at a government-owned hotel, eat at government-owned restaurants and spend any discretionary vacation money at government-owned stores. The notion that opening up Cuba to tourists, especially American tourists, will somehow magically bring democracy to Cuba is a ruse concocted ironically by the Castros to increase tourism without losing control of the Cuban people.
