Subject: Re: Cuba Tours

This year the government has really cracked down on travel to Cuba from the United States. It used to be possible to find a group such as a university to hook up with because they had special permissions to travel there. That is gone. I just read an article in "Boat U.S." magazine about the crackdown on boat travel to Cuba, which was relatively common, and allowed, until last winter.

I do not know what happens when a U.S. citizen begins and ends a tour to Cuba from another country. In recent history, Cuba would not stamp U.S. passports if asked, but I don't know whether that is still true, either. You might try contacting one of the Canadian companies Pat mentioned. I bet they get inquiries from U.S. citizens all of the time.
