Castro Cash Cow Gets Fatter than Ever

1362319971_92e23edbe0_o

They come, they eat and drink all they want, they dance, they sun themselves, they swim, they hire prostitutes, and they marvel at the quaint ruins in which the native savages live. Over half a million of them in just two months. While there, they live in a world apart and have access to all sorts of amenities, rights, and privileges that are denied to the natives.

And then, on top of this, there are also the tens of thousands of Cuban "exiles" who go there loaded with gifts.

Add them all up, and you have the income that keeps the Castro Kingdom afloat.  If the visitors continue to flow at the present rate, it could add up to over 3,000,000 neocolonialist contributors to the Castro Brothers Apartheid Foundation.

Since the island's population now stands at 11,253,665, the tourist-to-native ratio in 2013 will be roughly 1:4.

Neocolonialism Alive and Thriving in the Castro Kingdom

The National Statistics and Information Office (ONEI) reported today that 593,230 foreign visitors arrived to Cuba in January and February.

Main tourist emitting countries are Canada, Germany, France, Britain, Argentina, Italy, Russia, Mexico, Chile, Spain, Venezuela, the Netherlands, Austria, Switzerland, Peru, Finland, China and Colombia.

The top three emitting nations accumulated considerable figures in their contribution to the Cuban tourist industry, as in the case of Canada, with 146,937 visitors only in February, followed by Germany, with 11,333 and France, with 11,136.

Cuba boasts over 60,000 hotel rooms distributed in some 300 hotels countrywide, and the authorities are seeking a diversification of the offer without abandoning the sun and beach modality.

As part of the proposals, there is an increase in the holidays of nature, culture, quality of life, business and congress, among others.
