I’ve always wanted to go to Cuba, and I’ve heard the government has eased travel restrictions. How do I do it legally?

This is probably your easiest connection. A person-to-person tour is a true cultural exchange with Cubans and their remarkable culture and traditions, not a sit-on-the-beach trip. You’ll have a packed itinerary that’s closely supervised. The tour costs are all-inclusive, and the U.S. government keeps a tight flow on these trips. National Geographic Expeditions offers week-long person-to-person tours starting at $5,795 and Insight Cuba offers four-day trips starting at $1,995.
