    • Living in America and travelling to Cuba with a European Passport (American work visa H1B)

      Cuba Apr 14, 2015 at 7:38 AM

      Hi there,

      I’m a European, living and working in America and I’d like to visit Cuba for a vacation. I hold a European passport and have an American visa (H1B).

      I'd like to visit over the summer but don't want to jeopardize my visa status.

      Per my understanding it is possible for non American Citizens and non permanent residents (Green Card Holders) to visit Cuba for tourist reasons:

      "The Cuban Assets Control Regulations are enforced by the Office of Foreign Assets Control (OFAC) of the U.S. Department of the Treasury and affect all U.S. citizens and permanent residents wherever they are located, all people and organizations physically located in the United States, and all branches and subsidiaries of U.S. organizations throughout the world. The regulations require that persons subject to U.S. jurisdiction be licensed in order to engage in any travel-related transactions pursuant to travel to, from, and within Cuba, or that the transactions in question be exempt from licensing requirements. Transactions related to travel for tourist activities are not licensable. This restriction includes travel to Cuba for tourist activites from or through a third country, such as Mexico or Canada. U.S. law enforcement authorities enforce these regulations at U.S. airports and pre-clearance facilities in third countries. Travelers who fail to comply with Department of the Treasury regulations may face civil penalties and criminal prosecution upon return to the United States."

      I'm wondering if anyone has any experience with travelling to Cuba while on H1B status and if this is possible?

      Thanks in advance,

      Andy

    • Where to go in a rental car - have we missed anything that we really should see?

      Cuba Apr 7, 2015 at 2:47 AM

      We are 3 friends, all retired and used to travelling but we have never been to Cuba. We arrive in May 2015 and have 4 nights in Old Havana followed by a 4 night stay in Varadero. We will hire a car in Varadero for a 2 week trip, staying in Casa Particulares, around the island. We are thinking of travelling down the East coast and coming back along the West Coast. Our rough itinerary is like this: Santa Clara (one night), Cayo Coco (just drive to have a look and stay in *** 1 night), Camaguey (one night), Guardalavaca (or Gibara 1 night), Santiago de Cuba (3 nights), Las Tunas (one night to break the journey), Ciego de Avila (1 night to break the journey) Trinidad (3 nights, Cienfuegos (2 nights) and return the car to Havana. We then have 6 full days left to stay in Havana or somewhere else. Any suggestions greatly appreciated.

      Need Info on USA to Cuba

      Cuba Apr 2, 2015 at 1:07 PM

      Hello, I have been commanded by my mother-in-law to arrange a two-week tour for six people (ages 7, 17, 49, 55, 62 and 87) to Cuba in July this year, 2015.
      Is this possible?
      We live in San Diego so can fly from Tijuana if helpful.
      I am reading very much contradictory info on-line. Some say only groups of certain standing can go. Others say, "Make sure you research a good guide book first" and then travel as you would any similar destination.

      I would really appreciate some clarification. First, I will pick up a good guide book tonight. Beyond that, though, what is possible for six Americans (well, three American, three dual US-Nicaraguan)?

      I'm not thrilled with being handed this task since I am busy organizing two group tours to Macedonia this summer, but with my father-in-law's age they seem to want this to happen this summer or not at all.

      Any help is appreciated, as always.

      Looking for general advice for spending a month as a student in Cuba.

      Cuba Apr 6, 2015 at 9:19 AM

      Hi everyone,

      I will be spending basically the whole month of June this year studying Spanish in Havana, Cuba. We will be hitting some great attractions as a group (10 students + 2 professors), living with host families, studying Spanish 20 hours/week, and taking day trips to Santa Clara and Vinales. I'm very excited, but I'd just like to hear from other people who have gone before. Basically any trips on what to expect are welcome.

      For example, advice like anything I should be sure to pack, local customs, or fun places to go in Havana (since I will have some free time to explore too). Basically anything you wish you would have known before you'd gone! Thanks in advance for your help.

      DECEMBER 2012 AND JANUARY 2013 IN CUBA!

      Trinidad Nov 18, 2012 at 10:54 AM

      i finally did it, i.e. i booked my flight to go to CUBA for the holidays. i will be leaving Montreal to VARADERO on DECEMBER 21 (arriving at 9pm) and returning to Montreal from VARADERO on JANUARY 5 (leaving at 12h25pm).
      i am planning on staying in 'CASAS PARTICULARES' in VARADERO on the first 2 nights (december 21 and december 22) and on the last 2 nights (january 3 and january 4) because of my flights.
      SO, for the other 11 nights, can i wait until i get there to book the rooms? i have not planned everything yet, but i was thinking of going to the west to do some biking, maybe going to Trinidad. also going to the playas del este. and i thought of spending DECEMBER 31 in LA HAVANA.
      does that seem like a good plan?
      thanks in advance for your advice.

      Ferry from Trinidad to Tobago (and return)

      Trinidad Feb 13, 2011 at 9:06 AM

      Hello,
      I'm looking to get an idea as to how the schedule works for the ferry. Currently the website has a schedule posted for March 2011 (when we'll be traveling).
      patnt.com/ferry_schedule.sht...


      It looks like for most of the month there are several times per day that you can catch the ferry back from Tobago, however are the dates we are traveling (March 26th - April 1st) there are only 1 or 2 times listed.

      Will the site be updated with more times later or is this just the way it is?
      Trying to figure out the best way to make the most of our time and have a little flexibility! Do you recommend flying? Any suggestions or additional information would be greatly appreciated. Thanks :-)

      Best base

      Hi everybody!
      I am planning my trip to Cuba, after some days spent in Havana we want to move South-East and explore the area around Cienfuegos. As far as I could learn reading here and there, the interesting places around there are Cienfuegos itself, Trinidad, Remedios and Santa Clara. So, my question is: what's the best idea for the accomodation? Is taking one city as a base a good idea? And which city is the ideal solution?

      Trinidad Mar 14, 2009 at 2:32 AM

      Hello,

      We are in Cuba just for one week. We have already booked the first 3 nights in Havana old town centre. We would like to spend perhaps 3 nights elsewhere before returning to Havana for our flight home.

      Trinidad seems a good place to go but it seems to be quite a distance and not easy to get to. Any advice please?

      We don't want to spend lot's of time on the beach but would like to snorkel while there.

      Would we be better off doing day trips from Havana or going to Varadaro or perhaps to the West?

      Any advice most welcome, thanks.

Since i'm a student, and my budget is low i want to spend as less money as possible in the trips. i think that the cheap way to go from barbados to caracas, is to catch a plain to trinidad, and then a ferry to the continent. This friend from caracas told me to try to find a ferry from trinidad to isla margarita, that, has he said, is the cheapest way to go to caracas.
      i'm tired of looking for at websites, for some information of ferrys from trinidad to venezuela.
      can someone please help, cause if there is a ferry i need to know as soon as possible if its a diary or a weekly ferry.
