Future Cuba travel plans?

I'm keeping an eye on the situation in Cuba and currently have no plans to visit anytime soon. Mainly because of the frequent power struggles. Does anybody else here have plans to return soon? If not, where are you going? My Europe plans changed and I am currently in the early stages of a 10 week Belize/Guatemala trip.

Nothing about Cuba pro or con, but my future trips will likely be to Mexico. Europe takes a lot more planning, time, money for me from west coast USA. If I were going into the Caribbean I'd go to Negril Jamaica as I've enjoyed it in the past over the years.

We would really like to return to Cuba. In spite of it’s Communist govt and its suppression, the Cuban culture with it’s music and dance shone through.

Was in the Windy city last month. Chicago is impressive and way more dangerous than Cuba.
Just staying in Canada for the rest of this year.
If I go back to Cuba next winter, I hope do another cross-country trip to different places.

Hey Suze. I remember you from the TA Puerto Vallarta forum. I haven't been to PV since 2018 and probably won't be returning anytime soon. My Mexico trips these days are usually a combination of Cozumel and Merida. HappyTravir, I won't address your political comment, but yes, the music and people of Cuba are what keep bringing me back. CubanWaters, I'll be sending you an email tonight. As far as my next Cuba trip, I am hoping to return in January depending on the severity of the power outages.

I lived in the city center of downtown Chicago and never felt it was dangerous. You take necessary precautions in all cities. Walked to and from work daily, in the dark too.

I spent most of my time in downtown Chicago on my visit and didnít find it dangerous either. Of course Chicago is made up of many different neighborhoods, some quite safe, some fairly safe and some dangerous. You werenít aware of this?

If there is one thing that impresses me about Cuba, it is the safety factor as a tourist.
