Donald Trump’s new policy on travel to Cuba has winners and
losers: Group tour operators could sell more trips, but
bed-and-breakfast owners in Cuba say they’re losing business.

Lodging owners say they started getting cancellations after Trump’s June
16 announcement. Tony Lopez, who rents out an apartment in Havana’s
trendy Vedado (vay-dah-doe) neighborhood, says the new policy is hurting
Cuban entrepreneurs.

Under the new rules, only licensed tour operators can take Americans to
Cuba on people-to-people trips. So some Americans who planned to go on
their own are canceling trips.

On the other hand, organized tour groups are now the only game in town
for people-to-people trips. One expert says tour companies should be
“opening Champagne” because the new rules could increase their business.
