Cuba is an enigmatic, ferociously beautiful country just 90 miles from US shores. Despite the island’s proximity to the U.S., politics have prevented U.S. citizens from traveling to Cuba with the same ease with which they travel to all other countries in the Caribbean. But it is precisely this isolation that makes Cuba so unique and alluring.
For almost 60 years travel to Cuba was strictly prohibited. The Obama administration loosened restrictions somewhat. The Trump administration again closed the door and now, the Biden administration has again eased travel restrictions. With these constant changes, it is difficult to know how, and even if, U.S. citizens can visit Cuba.
Despite these confusing regulations, travel to Cuba for US citizens is quite easy. Those that visit will be rewarded with glorious colonial architecture, astounding natural beauty, 9 UNESCO World Heritage sites, and some of the most welcoming and warm people you’ll ever meet.
