We found everything in and around Cuba to be very safe when we were there in may/june. Do you think it is unsafe?
Just like the folks who posted just before this one said.....
Don't break the law.
Good luck on figuring out what the law for Americans is this week.
Hope the web site "You" are using works and is the right one.
and on and on.....
Until everyone gets all the groves greased so that Americans can come and go with a minimum of hassle, it is best not to play lone wolf, and flotillas have been making the trip for years with fewer problems.
I really would like to do some diving
there before it gets too touristy. So I did a whole lot of research
on "the best ways and places to go by boat".
I found it is a matter of "where" you go that makes a difference.
Where did you go? Can you give details?
Did you check out the HUGE marina they have created to handle the influx of Americans. ( forgot the name of the place )
showed that crime was not a huge issue in the tourist areas, but the further you get away from the big tourist areas the more entertaining things got.
By crime I don't mean just a bunch of guys who mug you for your money
. You can find that in any American city.
At this point American tourism is getting ramped up ( daily flights from us cities ) so it is going to be a bit like the wild-wild west for a while.
I personally enjoy going to small coastal towns and making friends, but some might not, like it where the facilities are not, uh, premium.
Myself I like the less traveled waterway's.
