WASHINGTON (CIRCA via MOBIUS.LAB) — More tourists are expected to travel to Cuba in 2019 than ever before; 5.1 million visitors are projected to flock to the island as it celebrates its 500th anniversary, according to state news agency Prensa Latina.
Tourism has been steadily increasing. President Barack Obama thawed U.S.-Cuba relations in 2014. Not much has changed, even though President Donald Trump later rolled back some of those regulations.
Americans are encouraged to support the Cuban people when they travel, by staying in local homes through Airbnb and participating in cultural activities, like salsa dancing.
Cuba's warmth and hospitality, coupled with the country's low crime rate, make it a safe destination for families and solo travelers.
