Re: Will USCG fly over Cuba airspace?
Some of that information appears to be somewhat outdated... The prohibition on prepaid package tours, for example, is dated from 12 years ago...
Bottom line is, ANY AMERICAN citizen can legally visit Cuba today...
It's simply a matter of how much, and to whom, you're willing to pay for the 'privilege':
They are trying to say that prepaying a tour company outside of Cuba and then saying you didn't spend any money in Cuba doesn't count as legal. Never has and still doesn't.
I know its ridiculous, but they are allowing "cultural" tours, specifically and individually sanctioned by the Treasury dept to go and anyone can do this, if they have the money. However, getting one of those tours sanctioned is not easy, not frequent and it takes much more than a mom and pop travel agency to do it. i.e. The Smithsonian you referenced.
