Travel Ambassador Guide to Cuba Video

By on May 2, 2016

This year after President Obama’s visit to Cuba, restrictions began to ease even more for American travel to Cuba. As of April 21, 2016 the Treasury Department once again amended its rules for Americans interested in travel to Cuba. Commercial flights will begin soon, so it’s definitely time to plan your trip now and visit ASAP. Previously, I discussed how Americans can travel independently to Cuba without booking an expensive tour.

Recently, my travel dreams took me to Cuba and I qualified to travel there legally. This video is just a glimpse of the Cuba I experienced. It’s an amazing country to visit and I hope this video inspires all travelers. No country is without its problems and travel is never perfect. As a passionate traveler my goal is to meet people, discover new things, relax, learn and become a better citizen of the world. Enjoy!

    Hi Angel.
    I am Mark Sterns Cousin from LA – He recommended I contact you.
    I am traveling to Cuba Next Week for 5 days and was wondering if you had any tips for me.
    I know all of the basic stuff, but is there anything I just absolutely have to do?
    best restaurants, have-to’s to see, to do? or to buy or experience?
    thank you,

      Tourism to Cuba for Americans is against the law if you do not qualify for a general liscence issued by OFAC
