Tourism in Brazil has risen massively over the last decade and for many regions of Brazil giving them a major economic boost. However as tourism rises so do the numbers in people traveling out of the country and when the amount of revenue lost the country from outgoing citizens is paired with the tourists coming in the country is currently at a loss.
The tourism in Cuba has pulled the country into the news a lot over the last few decades and in fact from 1992 to 1997 it was illegal to have contact between tourists and the local Cuban people. Since this has been lifted there has been a real push to increase the tourism and now Cuba plays host to many holiday makers every year.
