Has anyone travel WITHOUT permission to Cuba the last two years? If yes, could you please tell me how did you do it and what's the story with the stamp on the passport? Thank you.
Cubans are used to Americans coming - there are many, many American tourists. If you're nervous, you can ask them not to stamp your passport.
Legally, you can go to Cuba - the US government cannot restrict your movements. But you are not allowed to spend money there. Cuba has a thriving US dollar economy because many Cubans have relatives in the US. Bring lots of ones and fives.
By the way, I didn't speak Spanish when I went and had an amazing adventure. Have a great time. I'd love to go back. anon
Do go, however, it's a wonderful country! anon
When an American arrives in Havana, the Customs Official simply slips a piece of paper into your passport and stamps it. When you leave, they remove the paper. There is no official record of your visit. You used to have to ask for this service; but now it is routine.
My experience is that the Cuban people and officials love Americans and welcome our visits. As they often tell me, the disputes are just between our governments.
I would be happy to talk to you further about inexpensive ways to get around and stay in Cancun which is very expensive; and where to stay and eat in Havana and where else to go in Cuba if you are interested. Kay
