Regularly scheduled non-stop trips will soon be possible to Cuba from Los Angeles via JetBlue and other carriers granted by the DOT to fly to Cuban cities after a 50-year hiatus.

Take note that while the U.S. Treasury Department may no longer require special licenses to visit Cuba, general tourism is still prohibited.

Travelers must confirm their visit falls under one of 12 acceptable travel reasons, which include meetings and other professional activities.

And if going, do plan ahead! U.S issued credit and debit cards may not work in Cuba so take cash with you!
