Did the recent June 4, 2019 change in regulation for travel to Cuba by OFAC put a crimp into your plans to book a cruise to experience Cuba? While the “People to People” travel program category used by the cruise lines is no longer in effect, the “Support of the Cuban People” category continues to offer a viable option to travel to Cuba.
Under the “Support of the Cuban People,” category, travelers must have a full-time schedule of activities that improve the lives of individuals in Cuba. This involves enhancing contact with the Cuban people, supporting civil society in Cuba, or promoting the Cuban people’s independence from Cuban authorities. There are Cuban vacation itineraries currently available that satisfy the requirements of the still acceptable “Support the Cuban People” program. Contact me if you would like additional information on these Cuba travel opportunities.
