Travel to Cuba

Last week, Obama announced he will allow Cuban Americans to visit their families in Cuba without limitations.

"House and Senate lawmakers have proposed lifting restrictions that prevent US citizens from traveling to Cuba for tourism." Cuba's doors have been shut to the US for more than 50 years. Currently, the easiest way for Americans to travel to Cuba is through Canada.

Once a hot destination for American tourists, has become a mystery to most. Having these limitations and restrictions lifted could mean an influx of capital for the Cuban economy. Some Cubans are weary of this change and hope that their homeland isn't transformed into a touristy destination, with Starbucks and McDonald's on every corner.
