With the recent removal of Cuba from the United States Terror List, a list which includes countries that are suspected to be aiding terrorist movements or foreign insurgencies in countries where social and political tension levels are very high, Havana hopes that a new perspective for national affairs has been opened. Since the American citizens have now an easier way to visit Cuba, for the communist island is no longer featured on the US Terror List, Cubans are already thinking of new ways to better the tourism and raise the income from the United States tourists in the months to come. So take a look at how Cubans plan to attract more visitors from the most influential country in the area, so you might get a glimpse on what the next most popular holiday destination might be for the citizens of the United States.
And it is not only that the people inhabiting the communist island are day dreaming. Statistics show that the amount of the United States citizens visiting Cuba has already risen. For instance, the numbers grew with a 36 per cent rate between the first and fifth month of the current year, compared to the period between January and May 2014.
In addition to that, international visits have raised in general. The arrivals of the foreigners are now up by 14 per cent, in the same period of comparison.
And the analysts connected to the problems of tourism have reckoned that the ascending path of the Cuban tourism is likely to continue in the period to come as well. There has been a lot of talk regarding a restart of the diplomatic relations between Havana and Washington, DC, and, according to the experts, such facts seldom go along with a growth in tourism between the countries.
It is an important factor that most of the people involved in tourism in Cuba have degrees to confirm their expertise and academic preparation.
Also, most of them speak English and are open to discover more English words which are not really common through the foreigners and which represent components to the American civilization, like `hipster` or `millennial`.
Moreover, a key point in their plan to raise the American oriented tourism is represented by their restaurants. In relation to that, Cubans say that Americans are the no. 1 tippers of all the tourists.
And, since Americans also like to party, Cubans are ready to invest in improving the nightlife in the most important cities of the country.
