cuba -- accessible to US citizens ??

Jump to last reply

Ok, here's the scoop: American travelers should note that although individual American citizens are allowed to visit Cuba--the warning on the passport states that going to Cuba is "not recommended" for U.S. citizens--American companies cannot legally do business with Cuba owing to the U.S. trade embargo. Therefore, trips must be booked through a Canadian or Mexican tour operator or travel agent. Further, if there are probblems with transportation or during the trip, U.S. citizens will not be able to file complaints with any U.S. agency. As for carriers to Cuba, try the following: Cubana (514/871-1222) which operates the only regularly scheduled flights to Cuba from Canada (Toronto and Montreal); Aeromexico (011/52-5-207-6311) provides regular service from Mexico City; and Mexicana (011/52-5-325-0990) which flies from Mexico CIty. Have fun, and be sure that you DO NOT bring home any cigars!
