HAVANA: Americans traveling to Cuba later this month are being moved out of Havana hotels to make room for President Barack Obama's entourage and being sent tantalizingly close to a place U.S. law effectively forbids them from visiting: the beach.The Varadero resort, an hour's drive east of Havana, is Cuba's most sought after tourism destination, with sandy white beaches, shimmering waters and plentiful hotels.But the beach is off limits to Americans as U.S. restrictions on travel to the island expressly forbid tourism in Cuba. Following the U.S.-Cuban detente announced by Obama and Cuban President Raul Castro in December 2014, American visits to Cuba soared 77 percent in 2015 to 161,000 visitors.
