Pick-of-the-Week: Cuba Travel
There’s been a lot of talk regarding travel to Cuba since the United States introduced new policy that restores diplomatic relations. But what does it really mean for someone who wants to travel to this island that has been “off-limits” for so long?
The new policy allows for only certain types of travel and does NOT include travel strictly for tourism. US citizens can legally travel to Cuba for purposes of: professional research, humanitarian projects, educational activities; or if they are participating in a sporting event or performing in a concert.
While travel to Cuba is now open, it is good to keep in mind that Cuba is still not ready to receive a huge influx of visitors from the US. An article by Patrick Oppman of CNN puts it best…
Cuba is really not ready to receive a huge influx of visitors, particularly from the United States. There are not enough good hotels, and infrastructure is in terrible shape. U.S. credit cards still aren't accepted in Cuba and forget about overseas roaming on your U.S. cell phone.
You will most likely be taking a vacation from the Internet, too. Apart from hotels and a few dozen Cuban government "hot spots," there is very little connectivity in Cuba. Netflix may be available here now but in reality you won't be catching up on your favorite shows.
If you are excited about the opportunity to visit Cuba, now may be the time to go. Click on either of the pictures below to explore some options. We’d be happy to talk to you!
