Americans traveling solo to Cuba.

Jump to last reply

My brother-in-law wants to travel to Cuba but is nervous about any repercussions he might experience--I assume from the US govt. He knows he would have to travel by way of Canada, which is no problem because we live in Washington State, and he can depart from Vancouver, B.C.

He's not in the least political. He says he's wanted to go to Cuba since he was 16 years old--I think that was pre-Castro-- but at that time his father wouldn't let him go.

He's African-American and seems to like to travel to places where there is a sizable population of people of color. (Our town in not at all diverse.) He's been to Belize, which he liked, and Jamaica, which he didn't like very much. He's also gone to Cancún with he son, but isn't a beach guy.

Anyway, I'm wondering about any Yanks who have traveled on their own to Cuba. Was there any problem with our gov't? Or with anyone else?
