Imagine if you can, the U.S. supporting Castro in the Cuban Revolution. World circumstances would have been dramatically different in the second half of the twentieth century.

It is unfortunately a communist country. The people barely get food rations, the cities are falling apart and so much suffering. A paradise destroyed by Castro and communism. The Cuba tourist see is nothing compared to real life for the locals.

I worked in Cuba for 8 1/2 years and traveled this country many times. I have see the east when Columba's first set foot in Baracoa many times as I worked in MOA the Mining end of the country. Have been through Guantanamo city stayed in hotels and also worked the Soybean plants in Santiago. Was also in Varedero for the turbine plant that supplies electricity for the area. Seen Elion's town been through hotel shut downs when Fidel Castro made his speeches which sometimes would last 8- 10 hours.. Seen most of Havana. Bottom line is that this is what Communism is about. Open your eyes from the Rum and beaches. The regular people are suffering BIG time. The doctors are a joke except for the VIP and Military as drugs are not available through out the island. Please people dont praise the system and yes they are great people but why are so many leaving the island????? Sorry but true.

One of the more interesting things about Cuba is the ability to educate doctors who then are made available around the world to give humanitarian assistance. Cuba offered doctors to the U.S. during Katrina but was turned down. Despite lack of medications (embargoed by U.S.) people are healthy due to doctor to patient ratio which exceeds most countries in the world. Most certainly the country has multiple problems but they do some things well. It is still surprising that the US imposes so many restrictions, given that so many countries the U.S. does business with are as bad, if not worse.

My husband and I have been to Cuba 23 times. The people are lovely, but there is much poverty. We always bring toiletries with us and give to the locals when we are out and about and we have also donated school supplies. They really appreciate Canadian tourists.

Jean Franklin, we had very excellent food for every meal. Not sure where you ate but we dined everywhere from open air restaurants in the west to very fine dining in Habana.

it is very poor and the meals are much to be desired even at 5* hotels. Peasant food.. Nonetheless, interesting country and history attached to it!

Cuba is a beautiful place to visit but the people are very poor. Those 50’s cars are neat but the tires are so bald, it’s a wonder they can still drive them. But the people are very warm and friendly. I really enjoyed my visit to Cuba.

I lived in Cuba for 2 1/2 years on the naval base (Guantanamo), and, although not allowed into the mainland, I never met a nicer group of people than the Cubans who worked on the property.

carlthedad, I’ve visited Cuba 5 times and your statement is simply not true. On my third trip, I was a passenger in a vehicle which was involved in a traffic accident. I was taken to hospital and looked after very well by their excellent medical staff. Of course I had travel medical insurance as tourists are not allowed to enter the country without it. I was certainly NOT ‘held for ransom by the Cuban government’! 🙄

I have not been to Cuba. Considering its distance from my country it is unlikely that I will be able to see it.
