I hear you, loud and clear. I'm gonna go light one way or another.

Apparently about 100,000 folks a year, from the US, go to Cuba from Canada or Mexico. Just ask to not have your passport stamped by Cuban customs and take cash, don't even try to use a credit card.

Our travel agent said that many believe Cuba will be open to the US in the very near future and if this should ever happen the prices in Cuba will skyrocket. She suggested to go now!
