If you are an American, that verges from dumb to insane. Steer clear. Go down to Hispanola or somewhere else.

If you are not an American, maybe go to the Tortugas first, rest up, and head south from there. I have not been to CUba but have been to the TOrtugas.

Honestly, I do not understand the drive and interest in going to Cuba with the current regime there. Would I love to go there one day? SUre... but not when big or little Castro runs the place. What's the point? Isn't worth the very possible and likely reprocussions. Besides, I wouldn't do a thing to help that regime survive and since they are not in the business of letting you "visit" for free, that creates an ethical conflict.

Here you go. Read this and after reviewing all the info, explain to me why it is worth the hassle? Cuba
