The experts at Fodor’s help travelers discover the Caribbean’s largest island as U.S. travel restrictions ease

NEW YORK, NY– With the relaxation of regulations on American travel to Cuba, the island is on many travelers’ radars for the first time since sanctions were introduced in 1961. But with restrictions and developments changing quickly, understanding the revised rules and planning a trip to the Caribbean hotspot can be challenging. Fodor’s Cuba (on sale December 8, 2015) has been completely revamped to answer common questions and help travelers navigate getting to Cuba, providing expert recommendations on the top experiences and what to see once they arrive.

As U.S.-Cuba relations develop, many Americans are eager to experience what they have been missing for the past 50 years – salsa, sugar-sand beaches, world-class cigars and rum – and with its proximity to the United States, the International Monetary Fund is estimating that as many as 10 million American tourists per year will visit Cuba once all travel bans are lifted. Restrictions haven't been completely lifted yet, and until that happens, visiting Cuba from the U.S. legally can be confusing and involves a good amount of planning.

“While legal travel to Cuba for U.S. citizens is easier for the first time in more than 50 years, you can’t simply hop a plane to the island,” said Arabella Bowen, Vice President and Editor in Chief, Fodor’s Travel. “Fodor’s Cuba contains all of the latest practical information on traveling to and around the island, making it a necessity for any traveler who is planning a trip to Cuba.”

Fodor’s Cuba provides indispensable trip-planning tools to help travelers make the most of their visit, including coverage of tour agencies and cultural organizations that currently lead trips to Cuba since individual tourism is still restricted. To help travelers navigate the city streets and country roads Fodor's has created newly drawn maps that are featured throughout the guide.
