Question Routes and safety Sailing to South America from Tx

I am learning to sail. Once I get some proficiency I want to sail from Houston Tx to Brazil.

As I like to plan well ahead I was hopeing from some suggestions.

My questions:
What route might be best?

Should I avoid cuba? Avoid Hatti(as cost guard is there to keep earth quake from fleeing their country?

How long does it take to make the trip. Is this something I can do in a month?

What is the best time of year to make the trip?

If my experience is not enough, How might I locate someone sailing down there and get onboard to help out. Perhaps, a payed learning trip?
