US Citizen Traveling to Cuba Independently Via Cancun

Jump to last reply

I've been to the island of Cuba on two occasions but on People-to-People limited tours. Although I liked both experiences, I'm ready to travel without restrictions and the very, very limited time, so I am highly considering traveling to Cuba without the sanction of the US government. Currently, I want to travel from Cancun to Habana. Do I obtain my license in Cancun at its airport? Once I arrive I go through customs and onward. Upon my return, what do I do? I do know NOT to have my passport stamped although it was stamped in March because I went with a regulated group.

In terms of lodging, I'll get a casa particular through I'll hire a private guide because I do not know much Spanish, for very few individuals speak/write English in this island nation.

For you non-US citizens who've traveled freely, what other advice would you lend to me in order for me to have a very pleasant stay by my traveling solo. <I have great internet sites and guide books to use, but I'd like to know from your direct experience.>
