Cuban Adventures welcomes Americans on our tours in Cuba.

We offer two options for US Citizens and Residents to Travel Legally to Cuba in 2022 & 2023.

  • Book a regular tour & do the paperwork -  American citizens can travel on any of our regular Cuba tour packages if they stick to certain activities and do the paperwork to be able to travel under one of the authorized Cuba general license travel categories. You can learn how to make your trip to Cuba legal here.
  • Take an SCP tour - these are tour packages that are specifically designed to meet the license requirements for the Support for Cuban People Cuba (SCP) category. These are the best way for US travelers to have a fun and easy trip to Cuba, legal and hassle-free! See our SCP tours.
