DESTINATION CUBA

Guest: Nino Amato, Madison-Camaguey, Cuba Sister City Association member; President/CEO, Coalition of Wisconsin Aging Groups

After President Obama re-established diplomatic relations with Cuba on July 1, 2015, the United States reopened its embassy in Havana, Cuba three weeks later.  This began the process of opening Cuba to American tourist travel, and businesses are eagerly putting down stakes in preparation for the influx of new visitors and opportunities.

What is the story behind severing ties with Cuba in 1961, and why has it taken so long for the icy relations between the U.S. and Cuba to thaw?

On this program, Nino Amato describes the political history, the beauty of Cuba and the Cuban people, and why Cuba is expected to quickly emerge as a premier destination.
