People wait in line to check luggage at Miami International Airport for a flight to Havana, Cuba. The chill in relations between the United States and Cuba shouldn’t have too much impact on travelers eligible to visit Cuba on tourist visas.

  • Mariel Special Economic Development Zone

    Twenty-eight miles west of Havana in Mariel, one of the biggest economic development projects in Cuba history is taking shape. Cuban officials hope to attract sustainable industries, advanced manufacturing and high-tech companies to the Mariel Special Economic Development Zone. Their plans depend heavily on attracting foreign investment to the zone, which adjoins the Mariel container port. One U.S. company that wanted to locate in the zone was turned down but three other U.S. projects are in advanced negotiations.
