Is Cuba Safe?

In response to the new US travel warning, and the lack of clarity surrounding it, ElderTreks' CEO Gary Murtagh called the US Embassy in Havana to simply ask the question: "Is Cuba safe?"

Their response, "One should always be aware of pickpockets, but Cuba is absolutely safe... I guarantee it!"

Having travelled to Cuba himself 5 times in the past 2 years, most recently last week, this confirms what Gary already knew. Cuba is one of the safest countries in the world to travel to. Period!

Is it Legal to Travel to Cuba (for U.S. Citizens)?

You must meet one of the requirements or categories laid out by OFAC for travel to Cuba. One of these categories is "Support for the Cuban People". ElderTreks' Cuba trips are most definitely designed to meet this requirement. Call our office for more on this (800-741-7956).
