HENDERSON, Nev., March 26, 2016 /PRNewswire/ -- The biggest change in traveling to Cuba is that trips no longer need to be organized through a licensed group. President Obama announced in March of 2016 that "people to people" educational trips, can be taken on an individual basis without government permission. This is a change of historical significance. However, travel doesn't come without a few restrictions. Those visiting Cuba must keep complete written records of what they did in Cuba, and the trip must fall into one of several categories including:
- Family Visits
- Journalistic Endeavors
- Government Business
- Educational Purposes
- Public Performances including Clinics, Workshops and Sporting Competitions
- Religious Activities
- Business Research and/or Business Meetings
- Private Foundation Research
- Authorized Export Transactions
- Humanitarian Efforts
- Import or Export Activities or Transmission of Informational Materials
- To Support Cuban People
Traveling to Cuba gives visitors a look at an island which has been isolated from the world for over 50 years. Lack of trade with other countries is evident in the absence of commercialization and improvements to the crumbling infrastructure. Finding top notch accommodations, shops and even transportation does not come easily, however visiting this unique country which has been trapped in time, is still a remarkable experience. Old historic buildings along cobblestone streets with cars from the 1950's in pristine condition, are common sites in Cuba. Visitors can also enjoy the local cuisine, visit the white sandy beaches and vibrant works of art as long as they meet one of the approved criteria for travel. With the new ease of restrictions, commercial flights to Cuba will be available for the first time in decades offering a huge cost savings over charter flights that until now, were the only option. In future months and years the restrictions should continue to relax, making travel between the U.S. and Cuba even easier.
