List of restrictions eased in Cuba
Posted on Wed, Apr. 02, 2008

HAVANA —
(AP) — Since becoming president on Feb. 24, Raul Castro's government
has dropped some restrictions on daily life. Cubans can now:

— Legally own cell phones.

— Stay in luxury hotels or pay to use their gyms, hair salons and other
facilities.

— Visit beaches, which had previously been reserved for tourists.

— Rent cars.

— Buy DVD players and other appliances; computers are to go on sale soon.

— Cultivate unused state land with cash crops such as coffee and
tobacco. Farmers will also be permitted to buy supplies at state-run
stores without special permission.

And the government could soon:

— Let Cubans travel freely nationwide — and possibly internationally.

— Increase the buying power of the peso, the currency most Cubans are
paid in.

— Reduce restrictions on free enterprise that would allow more Cubans
to start their own small businesses.
