From our Bureau of Dark Moments in Apartheid Tourism
¡Qué lástima! What a pity! Leftists and apartheid lovers worldwide have been saddened by the news that Cuba is no longer attracting enough tourists.
The situation is so dire that Trucutú Díaz-Canel had to publicly admit that Castro, Inc.’s goal of 3.5 million tourists will not be met in 2023. Admitting such a failure doesn’t come easy for the puppet president.
Naturally, Trucutú blamed this crisis on the U.S. rather than on the poor quality of the food and entertainment offered by Castro, Inc.’s tourist industry and the depressingly shabby and poverty-ridden conditions that surround all of Cuba’s apartheid tourist facilities.
Perhaps they should launch a publicity blitzkrieg featuring Graciela and her fellow cigar ladies. She and her alluring cohort of cigar-chomping mammies could instantly convince millions of Europeans and Canadians to flock to Castrogonia.

So far this year, the country has received 1,309,000 international visitors, which is 20 percent below expectations. The figure represents only 51 percent of what was registered in the same period in 2019.
