Can Americans Travel to Cuba?
This is a question we get asked a lot at CHACO Travel. The answer is simple – YES, Americans can travel to Cuba under the “Support for the Cuban People” category! You must follow some straight forward rules for the Cuba travel to be 100 percent legal, such as staying at casa particulares, eating at paladares, and keeping a “full-time” schedule of travel activities involving private Cuban citizens and private sector establishments. You see, the whole point of “Support for the Cuban people” is that the money you spend goes into the pockets of regular Cuban citizens, not the government.
The best way to do this is to contact a reputable travel company that can arrange some amazing activities for you, as well as accommodations, drivers and more. “Winging it” is tough in Cuba. You will lose valuable time navigating a complicated society. You will miss the vast majority of the best things to do and see. And you will miss out on the private events and backdoor access that CHACO Travel provides to Cuba’s best musicians, dancers, painters, sculptors, restaurants, classic cars, tobacco farms, and so much more.
