Cuba saw a record number of visitors this year. The island nation has long capitalized on its sun, sea and salsa, but now it’s marketing a new attraction: health tourism.

Cuba is now looking to the United States. With the high cost of health care there, the U.S. is seen as a potential market. Especially now that the two countries have restored diplomatic relations.
