When Columbus discovered Cuba in 1492, he stated Cuba was the most beautiful land his eyes had ever seen. Since 1492, the flags of Spain, England, and the USA have flown over Cuba.

Prior to 1959, about 60% of the land and 80% of the businesses in Cuba were owned by USA citizens or companies domiciled in the USA. The nationalization of all assets held by foreigners in Cuba was one of the first actions of the Revolutionary government of Fidel Castro.

Today, there are numerous claims in international forums levied by former owners of real property in Cuba. How all these claims are settled prior to the lifting of the USA Embargo is anyone's guess. Cuba has entered into many joint ventures with non-USA based companies and countries to develop realty throughout Cuba.
