For decades the U.S. has restricted travel to Cuba, and while any savvy traveler used to be able to legally circumvent the restrictions, the Bush administration has made it an almost total ban, unless you are a journalist going to do a story or you have relatives in Cuba.
The American Society of Travel Agents recently estimated that if the U.S. lifted its restrictions on travel to Cuba, 1.8 million Americans would try to vacation there. Meanwhile, Congress continues to fight against the travel ban, although bills likely to pass to Congress would likely again be vetoed by Bush.
But with Castro ill and Bush within shouting distance of filling out his term, travel to Cuba is a very real possibility in the foreseeable future. Think it's a good idea to lift the ban, and would you go?
