Cuba (Spanish Cuba, official name Republic of Cuba) is an island nation in the Caribbean. In the northwest, the island has a coastal strip to the Gulf of Mexico, but the entire north coast lies on the Atlantic Ocean. Cuba is the largest island in the Caribbean. In the ranking of the largest islands in the world, it ranks 15th.

Cuba is one of the last existing socialist economies. The country has been in an extreme economic crisis since around 2009 due to the 2008 hurricane season and Cuba’s inefficient economy. The desperate economic situation forced the government to implement market economy reforms in order to ensure basic supplies for the population.

Tourism has taken a leading position in the country’s economy and has become the main source of income for foreign exchange. The beginning of mass tourism in Cuba was triggered by prohibition in the United States in the early 1920s. Cuba became a popular travel destination for Americans because it was close to Florida and was not subject to any gambling and prohibition restrictions as in the USA.

After the victory of the revolution in 1959, only a small number of guests, especially from the Soviet Union and the Eastern Bloc countries, traveled to Cuba in the thirty years that followed. After the dissolution of the Eastern Bloc and the economic crisis in Cuba, the government looked for new sources of foreign currency for Cuba. With the help of internationally active tourism companies, joint ventures have been established since the early 1990s, which set up and operate hotels and tourist facilities mainly in the main tourist areas.

Compared to other long-distance travel destinations, tourism in Cuba is safe. The risk of terrorist attacks in Cuba is also rated as very low. Cuba suffers from electricity shortages. In order to save electricity, electricity is switched off, especially outside the tourist centers, which can also impair the water supply and communication.
