After the publication of the new amendments to the Cuban Assets Control Regulations (31 CFR Part 515) on September 24, 2020, none of the existing 12 categories of Cuba legal travel have been eliminated, the US embassy in Havana will remain open and commercial flights will continue to Havana only.
It is possible for US citizens to go to Cuba legally under the General License for Educational Activities (515.565), the General License for Professional Research (515.564), the General License for Support for the Cuban People (515.574), and others still in place.
Persons subject to U.S. jurisdiction are prohibited from lodging, paying for lodging, or making any reservation for or on behalf of a third party to lodge at any property that is owned or controlled by the Cuban government; a prohibited official of the Government of Cub; a prohibited member of the Cuban Communist Party; a close relative of a prohibited official of the Government of Cuba, or a close relative of a prohibited member of the Cuban Communist Party. In furtherance of this change, the State Department is creating a new list, the Cuba Prohibited Accommodations List, to publish the names, addresses, or other identifying details, as relevant, of properties identified as meeting such criteria.

“We want you to know that we did, indeed, have a fantastic time in Cuba! It was a unique vacation and one we will cherish particularly because everywhere we went we got the impression that Cubans were welcoming an imminent change to their country. This made us grateful to witness Cuba before the unknown changes occur. Cuba is a gorgeous country, rich with history that your tour enabled us to witness. "
Bob and Linda Magni, USA
“Good morning! Our school year ended here yesterday so I though I'd take a few minutes to write you and thank you for facilitating our group's tour to Cuba!!! There are really no words to describe the impact that the trip had on each member of our group!
Our tour guide and driver, Myrelis and Juan, were simply incredible. We were cared for as if family and indeed we became such a family.
Gordon Hatchett, Brooklyn Academy, USA
“First of all, I must tell you that we had a wonderful trip, as usual (this being our third trip with you). Every day was filled with interesting and fun activities. Our tour guide, Israel, was a lot of fun and very knowledgeable. We were fortunate also to have a great group of people to travel with for the week.
Since this is our third Jazz Festival trip we were pleased to have some variations to the itinerary e.g. the trip to Cienfuegos and Trinidad. We really enjoyed the visit to the home of the local Cubans and enjoyed dancing with them. "
Myrna and Peter Tydd, USA
“First, Roma and I would like to thank Authentic Cuba Travel® for everything you've done to make for a remarkable experience. As artists, we were blown away by the quantity and quality of the art we saw as well as by the professionalism and training of the artists. The Art School was most impressive and easily the best use for a golf course we've ever seen. We did buy some works and are savouring them as we speak. In addition to the art, we did get to interact with the Cuban people and experience the culture, history and get a feel for the current situation."
