Cuba is the largest island. It contains more land than all of the other Caribbean islands combined. Only ninety miles from Florida, it was the destination for the first overseasâ commercial flights from the United States. Before Castro, Havana, the capital of Cuba, was the big Caribbean tourist destination. After Fidel Castro took over the egregiously corrupt government, most of the managerial and wealthy class left for the United States. The ten million who stayed seem satisfied with their communist government, especially since they receive millions in aid from Russia and a guaranteed market for their sugar. As of 1984 Cuba was off-limits to U.S. residents.
