Frankly, I was scared. I read, and was told, that you needed to go through a Cuban travel agency, or book a Smithsonian or National G tour, or work with organizations like those, or you had to go through Mexico or another country to get to Cuba. Well, my friends, research and preserverence will take you a very long way. Now, Freedom Travel has connections of our own and can custom design a trip Cuba. You do need a visa, and you will need to exchange US dollars for CUC’s upon arrival, and book in advance (always recommended), because flights and hotels book up quickly. Yep…Cuba, I’ve got you figured out!
