Cuba travel is accessible

Jump to last reply

I couldn't help but notice the post which assumed that Americans cannot and do not travel to Cuba.

Cuba is one of the most beautiful islands in the Caribbean. It is definitely the most unique. People are friendly, cultured, educated and full of life, dance and music. Beaches are fantastic. Havana is caught up in a time warp. Cuba is very safe and has thus far managed to escape the trappings of commercialism and touristic overkill.

For all these reasons and because it is considered the "forbidden fruit" it holds a special appeal to many open-minded Americans. Tens of thousands of Americans travel to Cuba (I know because I send them there) every year without bothering with the US governments archaic and illogical embargo. They do so via Canada, Mexico, Jamaica. NO ONE gets caught because they know how to go about it. Some people actually tell customs they went to Cuba because they wish to challenge the law and nothing happens (I do not advise that though, because something could happen). You cannot be prosecuted unless you sign an affidavid confirming you went to Cuba AND spent money there. Remember that it is LEGAL to travel to Cuba but illegal to spend money there!?#@ No one in their right mind will sign such a document.

Cuba welcomes Americans and the Cubans love them. So if you were thinking about visiting Cuba before it's too late, know that it is entirely possible and easy for you to do so.

Cheers
