10 thoughts on “How Tourism to Cuba is Often Promoted

  • The Cubans who can afford to pay for their own ticket to travel, let alone money to live off while overseas are as rare as hens teeth.

    So what? There are plenty of Canadians or Americans who are to poor to travel as well. Also the government of the United States has been restricting the right of Americans to travel freely much more recently then the Cuban government.

  • Yes, there is the real issue of having the price of a ticket. I wouldn’t be surprised if many of those who travel have support outside the country.
    As for the visas, the responsibility for these rests with foreign governments and not with the Cuban government.

  • Sky, is it possible that you are confusing warm and genuine with naive?

  • Ken overtly perhaps they are not prevented any more. They no longer need to have a carta blanca though I understand some professionals have a few hiccups in applying for their passports. More importantly is i) visas are getting very hard to get for Cubans even those who have traveled to – and returned home from – the same country before and ii) a visa doesn’t mean that you won’t get turned away by immigration and iii) The Cubans who can afford to pay for their own ticket to travel, let alone money to live off while overseas are as rare as hens teeth.

  • Adam I have been going to Cuba for the last 25 years. Believe me. I would bet money on it. But anyway Being warm and genuine has nothing to do with whether they want to get away or not. And thanks to tourism sadly (and I accept I am generalising here) Cubans of 25 years ago were way more genuine and warm IMHO
