It's Never Been Easier - or Cheaper - to Travel to Cuba

Elizabeth Llorente - Fox News Latino

November 19, 2016

Travel to Cuba will take a dramatic turn in the next week or two when several major airlines begin commercial flights from many U.S. cities to the long-forbidden island.

Many restrictions remain, of course, because of the U.S.-Cuba embargo.

But the Obama administration has eased or eliminated so many rules on travel that just about anyone who wants to go to Cuba can qualify under one of the 12 categories of approved travel established since relations between the two country began to be restored almost two years ago.

Group trips generally are most expensive since many are all-inclusive and don’t always have the best deals in airfare, lodging or meals.

Many U.S. airlines, hoping to dominate travel to the island, are offering low introductory fares, and the competition is resulting in big savings from the $2,000 or so that charter flights used to charge.

By the end of November, for example, Jet Blue will be flying from Fort Lauderdale and Orlando in Florida to Havana for as low as $54 each way, and from New York to Havana for $99. Southwest Airlines flights from Florida will be about $150. United will fly out of New York City's airports, including Newark International, for about $200 round trip.
