Finally, It is Easy for Americans to Travel to Cuba
Can Americans Travel to Cuba? Absolutely!
Travel to Cuba for Americans has just gotten easier, but still they are U.S. and Cuba rules to follow. This website helps explain it all.
How to get there, flights to Cuba, areas of Cuba, types of accommodation: it is all covered here.
Cuba has always been an exotic, somewhat forbidden place of travel. A Caribbean country stuck in time and at odds with our government. A sliver of what is available:
Havana's Malecon with its decaying strip of colonial style buildings facing the sea like a fortress against time. Old colonial villages and modern beach resorts. The music, dance, culture, the warm inviting people. Mojitos, made fresh from Cuban rum, or 12 year old Havana Club, sipped straight. The cities of the Cuban revolution; Santa Clara & Granma. Hemingway's home and boat, just like he left them. Hundreds of miles of gorgeous white sand beaches, crystalline blue waters and dozens of nearby cities and villages to enjoy. Tobacco farms surrounded by unique "mogotes" mountains. See cigars rolled by hand by the farmer himself. The old American cars, 1000's of them, patched together and being used for Cubans' livelihood. The list goes on. Who hasn't wanted to visit? Now is your chance to go.
