We asked our audience whether or not they are going to travel to Cuba when it opens this month. Here's what you said.

It’s November, 2021, and Cuba’s expecting a big month. There are planned protests, scheduled military demonstrations and an opening to tourists after a long pandemic shutdown. The influx of tourism is a welcomed economic reprieve to the island which saw a reported 13% decline in GDP from 2020-2021. But, while some already have one foot out the door to Havana, not everybody is eager to hop on a plane and visit.

But, we wanted to know specifically what you were planning (or not). Is our audience going to Cuba in the next six-months? With 252 respondents here’s what you told us. The results were surprising.

(All responses are completely anonymous.)

Are You Going To Travel to Cuba When Tourism Resumes This Month

  • No – 42.45%
  • Yes, but not now – 29.39%
  • Yes, in the next six months – 28.16%
  • Other – 0%

For a clean split of Yes vs. No, that’s 57.55% of you who do plan to travel to Cuba and 42.45% who do not plan to go.

Hola todo el mundo. Sometimes our stories are sourced from multiple people on our team. Or, we like to keep you guessing... You know... anonymous. And, for that, soy el escritora; "El Equipo." We exist to amplify the voices of writers, photographers, and content creators in the space between the United States and Cuba, and we also feature stories from Puerto Rico, Latin America, and the Latinx community in the US. Topics of interest are personality-driven and include pop culture and music, featured current events, climate and the environment, and travel and tastemakers. Oh, and of course we're always 100% independent. No governments, businesses or other influencing factors play a role in our work.
