I didn't mean to say I am not dying to go, and would happily pitch my tent in their parks (no swanky hotels for this one) but I guess from talking to travelers from other countries it is just another Caribbean destination to them, albeit one with a more interesting history.
There is just something about the U.S./Cuba story that makes it seem so much different, and I admit that I love visiting places where there are very few to no American tourists. But let's face it, just because there were no Americans crowding around Lake Issikul in Kyrgyzstan, doesn't mean that it is more beautiful than, say, Cancun!
