American travel to Cuba has undergone a renaissance in the past decade. Thanks to recent rules that made traveling to Cuba easier than it’s been since the 1960, Cubans and Americans were benefitting from an increase in American tourists to Cuba. But that changed drastically this June when President Trump enacted a ban on cruise ship travel to the Caribbean nation, and nixed one of the most popular ways for Americans to enter Cuba.
Coast to Costa travel guide Andrew Tyree has traveled to Cuba two dozen times since 2015. This week, he breaks down the immediate impact of these new travel restrictions for Cubans and Americans, and tells us what it’s like to get lost in Cuba.
