@David - I think once the freedom to travel is totally there as far as both U.S. and Cuban citizens going in and out, then you may see some phenomenal changes.  Cubana for instance could really become a regional Caribbean airline, and Havana itself a real airline hub alternative to San Juan.  I think costs geographically make it a little cheaper to fly in/out and that will stay - but the ground incidental expenses - transport, food, hotels, activities - a traveler faces will shoot up, up up as soon as free enterprise arrives there.

Interesting piece in today's Miami Herald from astute Latin America (and especially Cuba) pundit Andrés Oppenheimer on how increased U.S. travel to the island may or may not affect the rest of the Caribbean. Some say it will be a hard hit, others say not so much -- and may even grow the overall pie. Yes, there will be novelty value and some pent-up demand, but on the other hand this is not exactly an unprecedented opening. And I can tell you first off that it's hardly going to be a flood, at least for the foreseeable future, at least in part because capacity is still pretty limited, and what capacity there is, is being amply used by Europeans, Latin Americans, and the other visitors Cuba already gets. So we'll see how big a move this actually turns out to be...

There's a nice little villa on Virgin Gorda in the BVI that is owned by a friend of mine, if you're interested please contact me.

Looking for a reasonable winter rental

We are looking for a place to spend Jan.-Feb. Expat community or typically local environment. Ideally, a property we can take care of in exchange for reduced rent, but all offers welcome.

Blue Horizons in Grenada, one of my favorite islands, is offering 30% off plus perks for travel through Dec. 20. Blue Horizons is affiliated with (and just behind) Spice Island Beach Resort, so guests can use the costlier resort's beach.
FYI, Caribbean Airlines has new flights between JFK and Grenada.
