Our illustrated travel guide will take you to the island nation of Cuba.
Cuba is the largest Caribbean island and lies between the Caribbean Sea and the North Atlantic Ocean. It is 145 km (90 miles) south of Key West, Florida, between the Cayman Islands and the Bahamas, to the west of Haiti, and northwest of Jamaica.
Before the 1959 Revolution, Cuba was a popular tourist destination for United States citizens, due to the large number of casinos catering to gamblers established by the American mafia.
Revolutionaries claim the Batista dictatorship was a government that neglected many of its own citizens health and welfare in order to maintain itself in power.
Many Americans had beach homes and rich American companies owned large factories and land with the cooperation of Fulgenicio Batista, the ruling military dictator. Since the Revolution, Cuba has been subject to a trade and economic embargo by the United States.
Since 2009, US citizens with relatives living in Cuba have been allowed to visit Cuba. Others visit Cuba via Cancun, Mexico or Jamaica.
