Cuba, the next frontier of American tourism

The Associated Press has a piece about how those interested in visting Cuba are getting to the Caribbean Island in hopes of beating the hordes of American tourists who will no doubt precipitate the development of low brow places like Senor Frogs, or worse, a Margaritaville.

It’s still technically illegal for US residents to travel to Cuba but plenty do so by simply going through Canada or another country. What they find is an island that is mostly unspoiled by western influence but how long that continues is anybody’s guess. An executive with cruise heavyweight NCL said that line is ready to pounce when Cuba is opened up all the way to Americans.
