News about tourism and travel to Cuba
Cuba is more than mojitos and motors
The first thing that might come to some people’s minds when they think about Cuba is the classic automobiles the nation is famous for keeping running despite an embargo. For others, it might be a cocktail, the mojito, made with muddled mint and the sugar and rum that helped to put Cuba on the European trade map. But today, Cuba is looking past motors and mojitos to its future. The emphasis on tourism as an economic driver was seen in the amount of construction and renovation of historic buildings in Old Havana, and the service industry that’s sprung up to cater to tourists. From new restaurants opened by entrepreneurs to renovations of architectural wonders and from souvenir sellers to tour companies, the tourism industry is growing. And it is controversial to some Cubans, who worry Cuba will be seen as yet another island getaway for spring breakers.
