What are the rules about Americans traveling to Cuba?

Travel to Cuba for Americans is still highly restricted by the U.S. Department of Treasury under the official embargo. For Americans, only licensed travelers (through the Office of Foreign Assets Control) are legally allowed to visit Cuba. Licenses are offered for educational travel, family travel (Cuban Americans), religious travel and people-to-people cultural travel programs. InsightCuba has been a leader in providing any American with a valid passport the opportunity to travel under our people-to-people license.
