Topics Fifty-one years after the initial embargo was placed on Cuba, President Obama lifted some of the travel restrictions. U.S. citizens have always been able to travel to Cuba via Mexico, Canada or a Caribbean island with special permissions. Now it is legal to visit Cuba directly from the States. Thanks, Obama! Our special guest Rebecca, aka the Solo-Travelista (totally just gave her that name), chats with us about the basics of traveling to Cuba. We also cover what you should bring, which is a ton of sh!t, to make your trip a bit more comfortable. Remember, flexibility and patience are your friends while you prepare for your Cuban Adventure. We got so many great tips from Rebecca, we may do a Cuba 102!!!!
