Havana, Cuba is a city with warm beaches at just a 30-minute drive away, an old town filled with charm and colorful buildings. From an American perspective, Cuba looks like a place stuck in the 50s with old American cars, warm beaches, exhilarating music and a relaxed lifestyle, which makes it a perfect destination for those curious about a vibrant culture and intense history. This creates a big business in tourism for the Caribbean island. Around four million tourists visited Cuba in 2016, according to Cuba Business Report. Many Cuban locals, especially those who work closely with tourists, wish to see the business of tourism expand.
