    First trip in several years

    I'm planning to make my first trip to Havana in several years. I understand I can book a private room in central Havana through Airbnb. Last time I had a private driver that I paid $25 a day for about 8 hours. It's probably more expensive now. Can anyone contact me privately and give me some specific suggestions as to private accommodations that are friendly and flexible and liberal? And also names of private drivers who would be able to drive me around and are helpful and trustworthy? I found it was the best to stay in central Havana where you could find girls easily and locally. If you stayed in the more upscale neighborhoods you had a lot of Transportation back and forth to go to where the girls were and then back home and then back to take them home and so forth. Anyway any suggestions that people have or if you can refer me to specific parts of this thread where things are discussed would be very very appreciated.

    Just my. 02.

    I just returned from my first visit to Sosua the DR, had a great 10 full days.

    I saw on the news this morning that Alaska Airlines has cancelled their direct flights from LAX to Havana, that sucks as I was thinking about a quick visit.

In the meantime I'm taking a wait and see attitude.

The Havana side was business as usual. Returning back to the US was again business as usual. No questions asked at Immigration. Not that it means anything as far as the rules are concerned, since the Treasury Department OFAC section has jurisdiction over the Cuba travel regulations. Only time will tell how far they plan on going as far as enforcement of the new travel restrictions.

    If you are traveling to Cuba, stick to Support for Cuban People. The rules in that category are somewhat vague in some instances, but for individual travel it's the best way to go if you don't meet the requirements in the other categories. Under support for Cuban people, they specifically emphasize staying at a casa particular (Airbnb or similar), and patronizing privately owned restaurants (paladars) and businesses. Although those alone won't fully satisfy the new requirements, they are a good start if you want to be in compliance.

    Vancouver, Canada to Veradero on route to Havana

    During the next six months, there may be more scrutiny of returning visitors. The new policy requires the Secretary of the Treasury to regularly audit travel to Cuba to make sure travelers are complying with regulations and aren't traveling to Cuba for tourism. Treasury's inspector general is required to provide a report to the president on how audit requirements are being implemented within 180 days of the new regulations going into effect. After that, an annual report is required.
    Hey guys, does this new USA rules mean more choices for Canadian guys? Been reading a lot of valuable info on here last few weeks. Appreciate all. Been a long time since I took a trip surrounded by young beauties. Namely Germany but mostly Kyiv, Ukraine. Last 2 years travelled 5 x to Cuba for are / are at all inclusive but getting the urge to adventure, and explore Havana as I only visited in day tour previously. Now solo plan is fly into Varadero, bus to Havana, Airbnb for week, and hit the streets and bars hoping the cops are passive those days and bump into some local young beauties. AIRBNB question? Never done this type accommodation and was wondering if its best to try to get a casa for myself for more privacy and best location to busy action streets and bars? Realize the cost increase as see so many on website its amazing! Can you get privacy in a different type of AIRBNB accommodation? Not sure what is best but will contact owner to make sure "A OK" with female guests. Some DD on it but still reluctant to book until I know more info. Any feedback mucho appreciated. Gracias.

    I still do not understand how you folks were getting away with P2P. Obviously it was never checked and the government does not give a damn. P2P is an organization that high schoolers do international travel through during the summer for those that did not know. When I was first told about checking the P2P option I thought well that is a sure way to get busted if any.

    Cuba travel restrictions.

Also, your schedule of activities can not include free time or recreation in excess of that consistent with a full-time schedule. I have not been able to find their definition of "full-time schedule", but I imagine it would be eight hours per day. The record keeping part requires that you keep a "full and accurate record" of your journalistic activities.

    As with anything involving the government, if they want to make an example of you, they will. Hopefully, they will not bother the occasional traveler who doesn't create suspicion in other ways.
    I suspect that you are correct. Fortunately I have done some freelance journalism in Africa on a couple university funded projects. I think I will be okay on this upcoming trip to Cuba, being that I have already purchased tickets to Cuba before these new restrictions were implemented. But it ain't looking good down the road.

    I always travel alone, there have been a few exceptions when a friend came along, but there's no way in hell I'm going to travel with an organized tour group, just not going to happen. It's a damn shame, Cuba has been a great getaway during the winter months, I can leave my house at 6 am and be in Havana for lunch.

    Looks like Colombia will be next on my list, I will be saying my farewells while in Cuba, had some damn good times.

    What other agencies? Customs, banks, airlines? Are the airlines snitching?
    The Departments of State, Commerce, and Treasury all have a part in the regulations. The airlines are required to keep the form you fill out specifying your reason for travel for five years. I suppose the Government could ask for that information anytime.

    Ofac

    But on a serious note, it appears the US government is somewhat encouraging travel if it involves renting a room in a private home, eating at privately owned restaurants, and shopping at privately owned stores. The difficulty is filling up the remaining hours in a day that satisfies the requirements.

    I guess I need to read up on which restaurants are legal or illegal to patronize.

    I bought my plane ticket to Cuba a couple weeks ago so it will interesting to see what changes are really in place this trip.
