Cuba travel agency in Miami sold ‘May Day’ tour packages to communist Cuba

Martí Noticias is reporting that Marazul Charters, a Miami-based Cuba travel agency, sold tour packages to Cuba for clients who wanted to travel to the island to commemorate the communist holiday, "May Day." The tours included meetings with officials from the Cuban Workers Center, a Castro dictatorship-run labor organization, as well as meetings with officials from Cuba's one and only government controlled union, which is another organization and political tool of the regime.

The highlight of the tour, however, was the opportunity given the program participants to march in Havana alongside the Cuban communist party apparatchiks during the communist dictatorship's May Day celebrations.

One has to wonder what is next: Tour packages for the next Cuban Communist Party Conference? I guess these are the "cultural exchanges" and "people-to-people" contacts the Obama administration is referring to in their current Cuba travel policy.
