Is It Safe to Visit Cuba Now?

I recently heard that Americans can no longer obtain a Visa to visit Cuba. This is in reaction to the incidents of hearing loss and other illnesses experienced by some of our Embassy employees in Havana. Some were staying in a hotel in Havana and were affected in the hotel. Canadians, too were affected. No new visas will be issued to Americans. If you already have the visa, you will be able to travel there. I know several friends who are already booked on cruises that stop in Havana. Their cruise companies say that the stop in Havana are still scheduled. Would you feel comfortable going there not knowing who actually is causing the illnesses and if the incidences are still happening?

No not at all ... I've been following this odd story for awhile and there is something extremely crazy going on and from what I've read ... it's not Cuba's fault and they are cooperating with US to determine causes ... that said, who knows but too strange for me ...

Yes, I agree! This really is crazy! I hope that someone gets to the bottom of it soon. I really do want to visit Cuba.

As of Sept. 28, the Canadian government has not issued and different travel warnings for Cuba than before - just common sense things about Zika, pickpockets etc like in many other areas such as Nassau.

That is interesting!

I still have mixed feelings on Cuba. I can wait.

I wouldn't hesitate to visit - Canadians have been travelling there and written great reviews of the resorts they've stayed at. My brother was there a few years ago and loved Cuba - said the

eople were really nice, beautiful beaches, and much cheaper than other Caribbean destinations.

Havana has been on my bucket list for years... Would go in a heartbeat!

Another old thread brought back to life. Wink

Friends of ours just returned from a week in Cuba and they loved it. The beaches were spectacular they said.

I've envied the Canadians for so long for being able to travel there freely. I loved the beaches in Guantanamo... beautiful shells, gorgeous sea glass... and the diving was superb. I would just love to experience the culture from the "other side of the fenceline".

Gotta be safer than Mexico
