Is Cuba still on your mind but unsure if you can still go?
The short answer is YES you can travel to Cuba if you join an organized tour that meets one of the 12 Categories of Legal travel. President Trump is keeping sanctions on the Cuban government but is restricting the access to individual travel. There are still 12 Categories of legal travel to Cuba. The most common form of travel is called people-to-people and this will require travel with a U.S based operator.
Hasta Cuba & people-to-people programs:
As you may have heard by now, Fidel Castro the revolutionary leader of Cuba has died at the age of 90. It was under his leadership that Cuban and US relations disintegrated. For almost 50 years Fidel led the country under a US Embargo and maintained his strong Communist ideals while preserving Cuban customs.
In 2006 Fidel became extremely ill and passed along the role as the Cuban president to his younger brother Raul. Though Raul is also very patriotic and was a part of the Cuban revolution he has made some serious changes during his presidency.
