New Partnership Eases Cuba Travel for Americans

By December 17, 2012

Follow me on:

Travel to Cuba has not been shut off for Americans, despite a recent pullback by the U.S. State Department on licenses for Cuba travel companies. In fact, a number of licenses have been renewed, and as reported this week by Travel Weekly, two of the biggest players in U.S.-Cuba travel are once again teaming up to bring Americans to the land of cigars, salsa, and Fidel.

Tour company Insight Cuba and travel agency General Tours World Traveler will work together to facilitate so-called "people-to-people" cultural tours aimed at connecting individual Cubans and Americans. These aren't your usual fun-and-sun experiences -- they are tightly restricted under U.S. law, so you'll be spending lots of time in museums and talking to real Cuban people ... which actually sounds better than yet another beach vacation to the Caribbean to me.
