I've been dying to go to Cuba for several years now. I want to go before the embargo is lifted and there is a McDonalds on every corner and the cruise ship crowd reduces the island to a mass of "I [heart] farting" t-shirts (see Key West).
Looks like Travelocity won't be any help. Travelocity fined $183,000 for booking trips to Cuba.
The brother of an aquaintance is huge bass fisherman and I'm told in the competitive bass fishing world (yes, such a world exists) it's widely believed the next world record will come from Cuba. So, this brother had made several legal trips to Cuba under a Treasury license. He would collect medical samples from doctors all over town and take them to Cuba on "an humanitarian mission" that included lots of bass fishing. It's my understanding that the Bush administration, dancing to the tune of the Miami Cuban crowd, has cracked down on these licenses.
