The following article (in part) appears on Peter Greenberg's website:

It is still possible that U.S. policy may eventually soften even more. Treasury Secretary Tim Geithner has publicly stated that the Obama administration is “reviewing” its policies towards Cuba.

Others point to the upcoming Summit of the Americas in Trinidad and Tobago, which the U.S. and 22 other nations will attend, as a prime opportunity for America to further redefine its relationship with Cuba.

Many feel that it’s just a matter of time until restrictions are substantially eased. Some believe that cruise companies quietly started charting viable harbors around the island after Raul Castro took over the reins of power from his ailing brother Fidel in February 2008, in anticipation of the country opening up to American tourism.

There is even a pier being built in Key West, which many think is a future ferry port to Cuba.

Cuba is already a hugely popular tourist destination amongst nationals of countries which allow travel there. The island’s beautiful beaches, lush greenery and hospitality have attracted large numbers of visitors from Canada, Europe and South America.
