Cases studies in tourism indicate that this industry has led to a diversification in cultural arts and crafts by providing an enlarged market for native products. The intent of this paper is to examine how Cuban national culture, or cubanidad, has historically developed, the impact it has had on Cuban artwork, and how cubanidad is now part of a local naive painting tradition increasingly linked to the tourism market.

Keywords: Tourism, Cubanidad, Artwork
