Why did some Americans have a strong economic interest in Cuba?
Sugar cane and tobacco crops.
Spain fought with Cuba because Cuba wanted independence. US involved in the war because US had the economic interest in Cuba. Americans invested millions of dollar in Cuba plantations, and the attack of Spain that destroy the American ship called Maine was a reason. US also wanted Europeans to get out of Americas continent.
The main reason is its strategic location. It would be a fine launching pad for an attack on the United States and indeed such was a worry when Spain owned it and later when Russia became an ally of independent Cuba. It is also a source of cigars and sugar and was a popular resort spot for Americans in pre-Castro days.
Your question doesn't make any sense or is too vague. Economic geography is a discipline that studies location, distribution and spatial organization of economic activities in different regions in the world. It you are asking what is the main economic difference between Mexico and Cuba, the answer is that both are developing countries, but Mexico has capitalistic tendencies while Cuba has a socialist/communist economy.
The policy has eased in the past years. Americans are still not allowed to travel to Cuba, but Americans who have immediate family in Cuba are allowed to visit. most of the reason that the us government hates Cuba is because they are a communist nation, and they have a dictator, which America highly disapproves of. Hope this helps :)
