Why not visit Cuba now that the strict limitations have been loosened?
post #73713 of 85792
Def take some time off and travel. Take 3+ weeks > 2 months if you can afford it. It will be a great experience.
Travel solo is my recommendation.

You still have to circumvent. Travel is only officially allowed for business reasons.

Not true.
But you do need to circumvent if you want to go and just be on your own and do whatever.

"Travel to Cuba must be authorized within one of the existing categories. These include: travel for family visits; official business of the U.S. government, foreign governments, and certain intergovernmental organizations; journalistic activity; professional research and professional meetings; educational activities; religious activities; public performances, clinics, workshops, athletic and other competitions and exhibitions; support for the Cuban people; humanitarian projects; activities of private foundations or research or educational institutes; exportation, importation or transmission of information or information materials; and certain authorized export transactions."

Ok. So you post that to agree with my "not true." All of those categories are not for "business reasons."

You know that what I meant was you can't fly MIA > HAV for 7 days at the all inclusive.

Exactly. That's why I agreed with you re circumventing.
Unless you go with a licensed org(for the majority of US citizens), you either still need to fly to Canada/Mexico/Caribbean and then on to Cuba(which is rather easy to do) if you want to visit the island on your own with no restrictions.

It depends on where you go and how you look / act.

I didn't feel unsafe at any point, when I was there, not even walking home from a bar at 3am shitfaced.

I didn't realize you agreeing with me because I stopped reading at not true.

+1

And if GF is looking to travel to places outside his comfort zone.....I take it for granted that he knows to travel "light."
No fancy watches/jewels/etc.

I don;t even carry a wallet in some places. Just my money clip with cash/hotel card key and bank or CC.....and my camera. basically it.

I dunno, I wear my Explorer everywhere on a nylon band and have never seen anybody eyeballing it. Although one guy selling fake watches in a suq spotted it, not too concerned with that though.
