The Obama administration has relaxed travel restrictions to Cuba, reinstating Bill Clinton's policy of allowing people-to-people travel.
Maybe a few decades ago this would be outlandish, but United States and Cuban relations have become much less tense compared to the Cold War era. The risk they posed in the previous century is stabilized now, their alliances show little harm to the U.S., if any at all. It is also interesting to see more Americans making the trip to Cuban soil.One of them is Anthony Bourdain from the Travel Channel's show "No Reservations." His visit there helped show the viewers that Cuba is a country that has almost been sheltered in its own cage. His experiences show that within the nation there are genuine people and an amazing culture which foreigners can learn from as well as admire.

It's time to end the travel ban betwen the United States and Cuba. While some lawmakers are not sold on the idea, Obama administration eases towards the travel restrictions allowing the opportunity for Americans to travel where they want and when they want.
This article is about relaxed travel restrictions for Americans visiting Cuba. The United States has restricted American tourism to Cuba as any money the US sends to Cuba is seen as supporting the Castro government. However, since Europe and Canada have no such restrictions there is not a shortage of tourist money being spent in Cuba. With the US relaxing its travel restrictions, Cuban-Americans wanting to visit family or their homeland and many who have long wanted to to visit the country are getting the chance to do so.
This article talks about how the Obama administration has begun loosening up its restrictions on Americans traveling to Cuba. Cuba is the only country the US restricts its citizens to visiting. Even though Americans are allowed to travel to Cuba, there is a catch, one would have to go on a U.S. government approved tour, and would not be allowed to go to the beach or Havanas Cabaret at night. The groups goes to hospitals, schools and historic sites, all with a tour guide appointed by the Cuban government. So is this really considering "relaxing travel restrictions" or is it more of, sure you can visit Cuba, but you're only allowed to go where the US government wants you to go.
