Travel + Leisure lists new ways to get to Cuba for US citizens

Posted: 25-Aug-15 09:13

Now that Americans are allowed to travel to Cuba, there are many new ways available to make the journey to this island nation. It all depends on your budget, your preferred style of travel and your overall plan for your trip.

Travel + Leisure lists new ways to get to Cuba for US citizens

With the travel restrictions between the USA and Cuba easing up, there are more ways than ever to get to this destination that has been forbidden to US travellers for so long. Travel + Leisure has eventually published a list of many different ways to travel to Cuba – including tour operators, airlines, ferry services, cruise companies and much more.

Here are some of the many ways that you can make your way to Cuba:

  • American Airlines will be offering a nonstop flight from California between Los Angeles International Airport (LAX) and the Cuban airport Jose Marti International in Havana (HAV). It will be the only US carrier that provides nonstop service between the West Coast of the USA and Cuba.
  • Haimark Line is a small ship cruise operator that has recently announced plans to offer nine night round trip voyages around Cuba starting from Miami. The trips will begin in February 2016 and will vist a number of ports including Trinidad, Cienfuegoes, Havana and Maria La Gorda.
  • Fly with HavanaAir. This airline is in partnership with Eastern Airlines and will be making weekly trips from Houston's George Bush Intercontinental Airport and Havana. All flights will be direct.
  • Consider flying with JetBlue from New York City to Havana. This airline offers weekly charter flights between John F. Kennedy Airport and Jose Marti International Airport.
  • Take a "social impact" cruise with Carnival. They will take passengers to the island on the first voyage of this "voluntourism" trip.
  • Take a ferry from Florida. There are four different ferry operators that will now be offering trips from Key West, Florida to Havana. In the future there might also be trips between Miami, Orlando and Fort Lauderdale.
  • Take a sailboat. A company called "Adventure Smith" will be offering trips on their schooner The Panorama between Havana, Trinidad, Maria La Gorda, Cienfuegos and Cayo Largo. The voyages will begin in December.

These are just a few of the methods for getting to Cuba that Travel + Leisure suggests. To find out more, check out our post about what the New York Times has to say about travelling to Cuba.
