ADIOS CUBA: SHOCKING Reasons for U.S. Travel Halt

ADIOS CUBA: SHOCKING Reasons for U.S. Travel Halt

¡Ay Dios Mio! Another Obama fantasy unravels at the seams.

In the final stretch of his Presidency, Mr. Obama made some last-ditch moves to secure any semblance of a positive legacy (beyond Obamacare, disastrous foreign policy, and resurrecting the race riots, of course). His solution?  ¡Viva Cuba! 

The President eased travel restrictions for American Citizens to the island and loosened regulations on the American dollar in Cuba. He defined the nature of acceptable travel as “People to People Visits.” Yet another remarkably ambiguous and meaningless Obama-ism. These visits theoretically limited travel to family and educational purposes. However, a 2016 New York Times article remarks on the vague limitations:

“Americans who plan a trip with a full schedule of educational exchange activities, including interacting with Cuban people, will for the first time in decades be able to travel on their own to Cuba without special permission from the United States government…Travelers who fill their days with museum visits, cultural sightseeing and conversations with Cubans about their society, and keep a daily journal, could meet the requirements.”

Lesson learned. If you plan to go to Cuba, bring a notebook.


In near laughable consistency with the rest of the Obama Administration’s out of touch policies, Airlines find that…SURPRISE! Americans don’t really want to go to Cuba.  

Due to lack of demand, two major airlines will suspend Cuba operations next month. Frontier and Silver airlines find U.S. to Cuba flights too expensive, with low turn-out.

{Inner monologue} Hmm… a plan that is too expensive to support itself…that no one asked for… which failed at takeoff. This rings a bell.

Other major airlines, like JetBlue, reduced the number of flights to Cuba. However, the airline still retains a few routes to the Commie Coast.

CUBA: Like Disney with Diarrhea and Dysentery

adios CubaAside from its history of brutal dictatorship, geopolitical and economic instability, and disdain for America–Cuba offers much in terms of tourism. There are the rum and cigars.

Moreover, if staring out of the window of a 55 Chevy at crumbling building facades doesn’t spark your fancy, I don’t know what will. It certainly won’t be the food.

As one “cup is half full” traveler opined:

“The one upshot to Cuban food is you don’t find yourself overeating, which is good since properly functioning flush toilets are almost unheard of.”

In other news, I hear Guantanamo Bay is lovely this time of year.
