90 miles to Cuba. How to get there?

Once the wheels of our American Airlines charter plane screeched on the runway, signaling that we had landed on Cuban soil, a roar of applause started. Nothing surprising so far, we Romanians do the same once we land to safety. The difference was I had just landed in Cuba, on a plane full of Americans, myself included. The only ones applauding were the Cuban Americans, visiting their families. The rest of us still had our noses pegged to the window.

New Year's in Cuba

New Year's Eve is a celebration just about everywhere in the world. In some countries it’s about spending time with family. In others it’s about being with friends or family at the right place, at the right time for the infamous countdown. In Cuba, the New Year, like everything else, has its own unique flare.

Flights to Cuba: Plentiful, Accessible and Affordable

The mainstream media often climb onto certain narratives that take off as memes for one reason or another and become conventional wisdom, but often the standard narrative does not accurately represent what is really going on. 

For example, much of the recent media coverage about the U.S. Cuba travel market, especially regarding flights, has followed the story line that the market is not as strong as had been expected. However, that misses a great deal of the real story.

3 Reasons to Hop Aboard a Small Ship Cruise to Cuba

Although the Caribbean hosts millions of cruise visitors each year, Cuba, as cruising destination is relatively new for Americans. InsightCuba, who pioneered people-to-people travel in 2000, was also among the first to bring cruisers to Cuba as early as 2014. However, and beginning in 2016, after travel regulation changes, the larger cruise ships set course to Cuba.
