Update: How Americans Can (Still) Travel Independently to Cuba

Updated to reflect the Trump administration's newest (June 2019) attempt to keep Americans out of Cuba: You can't go there on a cruise ship, but as an American you can still legally travel solo to Cuba—and help support the Cuban people. It’s not nearly as hard (or illegal) to get there as the U.S. government would like you to think. Here’s how to do it.
