Travelling to Cuba from Orlando

hi

Apologies if this has been asked before I couldnt find anything in the forums

I am an Australian citizen who is hoping to go to Cuba in May/June this year.

Before hand I have a wedding to go to in USA and after the wedding a few of us were planning on going to Disney.

When I google I can see that there are direct flights from Tampa to Havana but I can't seem to actually be able to book anything. I was wondering if it was just an issue as it was booking so far in advance or if these flights don't exist anymore?

Or would it be easier for me to just go via Mexico?

thanks in advance

As it stands now, the only non-stop flights available between the US and Cuba are charter flights. They are often on U.S. airlines, but they cannot be booked directly with the airline. They have to be booked with the charter company. The big catch is that these flights cannot be used by non-U.S. citizens. You would have to go via a third country, probably Mexico.

No. Australian dollars cannot be exchanged in Cuba. US dollars take a huge hit when you exchange them in Cuba, so don't get US dollars for the trip. You'd be best off changing your money into euro or Canadian dollars. Neither of those gets the hefty commission charged in Cuba.
