For those who think Cuba isn't ready for tourism need to have their eyes opened.
Cuba welcomes hundreds of thousands of visitors each year from Canada and Europe as well as other parts of the world.
There are is huge tourist infastructure in place. Thousands of hotel rooms. Swim with the dolphin type excursions etc etc. car rentals. In fact, I would say that the facilities for tourists easily rival Jamaica or Dominican Republic.
For a sample of what is offered to an average Canadian tourist, check out Sunquest Vacations, Nolitours, Conquest Vacations, Sunwing Vacations, Air Canada Vacations to only name a few companies who fly to Cuba DAILY. Lots of beautiful hotels, great beaches, no fear of walking around Havana (a very cool city!!), lots of historical sights.
I know this may sound awful - no flames please - but because American tourism is minimal (yes they do go, we have met many Americans there on holiday flying from Canada), there is a nicer feel, less in your face tipping and agressiveness that you get in American dominated tourist destinations.
