A review of Americans’ Valentine’s Day travel plans by customers of leading travel insurance provider Allianz Global Assistance found that Havana, Cuba has made the list of the top 10 international destinations for the first time since American travel restrictions to the Caribbean country were eased.

Allianz Global Assistance reviewed more than 18,000 trips planned by its customers for travel for two people from U.S. airports departing between February 10, 2017 and February 12, 2017, returning between February 12, 2017 and February 13, 2017 and staying at least one night.

New York and Cancun top the list as this year’s most popular domestic and international destinations for the romantic weekend.

Domestically, the results showed that couples are heading to New York followed in popularity by Las Vegas, Chicago, Los Angeles, Atlanta, Boston, Phoenix, San Francisco, Dallas and Miami.

Internationally, Americans are traveling to Cancun, Mexico for a getaway followed in popularity by San Juan, Puerto Rico; Cabo San Lucas, Mexico; Montreal, Canada; Puerto Vallarta, Mexico; Havana, Cuba; Nassau, Bahamas; Oranjestad, Aruba; Toronto, Canada and Montego Bay, Jamaica.

“It’s exciting to see that this Valentine’s Day, Americans are taking advantage of the opportunity to travel to Cuba for an approved activity such as an educational or humanitarian visit,” said Daniel Durazo, director of communications for Allianz Global Assistance USA. “Whether couples are headed to Cuba or just getting away to a bustling city or relaxing beach, they should protect their investment with travel insurance. The right policy** can provide peace of mind with coverage and assistance for many unforeseen or unexpected events like covered trip cancelations and delays, lost, stolen or delayed luggage, medical emergencies and more.”
