Then you should read La Contra Revolución today. It’s no wonder that the regime is pulling out all the stops in trying to get the travel restrictions lifted. El Gusano quotes from El Nuevo Herald:
Most of Cuba’s tourism facilities were built in the 1990s and have received little maintenance since then, said a MinTur official who asked for anonymity out of fear of government punishment.
“The structure created for years in the tourism industry is crumbling piecemeal,” the employee said. “Tourism in Cuba is headed for chaos and it will take years to revert the present situation.”
“What’s happening in tourism is a reflection of a behavior that has spread nationwide,” said dissident economist Oscar Espinosa Chepe on the phone from Havana. “People are disgusted with the economic situation at home, workers don’t take pride in their work and inertia corrupts the entire organization.”
