When I was 12 yrs old (30 yrs ago)we sailed to Cuba with our sailing club. We had to get all sorts of permits and filled out a ton of forms(my parents, that is). It was on a cultural/educational type visa, approved by both countries. I'm not sure if they still have the same deal today, but it was an awesome trip for a kid. Stayed for 3 wks and loved every minute of it.
