Re: Cuba Insurance

Just get a license to do so....one if the choices for for which provision (family,journalist, etc) is "no provision". And you give as reason to go is you just wish to visit the country and experience the culture.

Technically you can do that but in real terms if you don't have immediate family or work for NBC you will not get the license.

There are some companies that were able to get licenses to do cultural tours and charge big bucks for individuals to participate but they are very organized and structured to comply with the regulations.

Recognized churches and charitable organizations have been able to get permits to bring humanitarian aid like medical and school supplies to Cuba.

An individual applying to go do a cultural tour will be refused, at least that has been the case so far. If you find out otherwise I will be standing in line to apply.

In my cruising around the Caribbean I have sailed up and down the coast of Cuba, close enough to see the lights of Havana. Have twice circumnavigated the island when cruising Mexico, Caymans, etc but never stopped. Can't wait until I can do so legally.
