Cuba’s Tourism 2020

If you look back at our blog dated April 1, 2016, you can read about our thoughts regarding President Obama’s historic trip to Cuba

Back then, people were asking us if we were worried about how improved relations with Cuba would affect tourism in the U.S. Virgin Islands. 

Back in 2016, we wrote: “One look at the dazzling bays and beaches of St. Thomas, St. John and St. Croix should put any such fears to bed.”

We hate to say we told you so, but . . . 

Yes, we know that Cuba has vintage cars and nice beaches, but do you know what you have to do to travel to Cuba?

Here are the steps you need to take to travel to Cuba:

  1. Get a valid passport. 
  2. Declare a “valid travel category” before you leave. 
  3. Get a Cuban Tourist Card.
  4. Get Cuban Health Insurance.
  5. Do not purchase anything from restricted Cuban businesses.
  6. Keep your receipts from your travels to Cuba for five years.

Do you think we are kidding? Google it yourself. 

Here are steps you need to take to travel to St. Thomas, St. John, or St. Croix. 

  1. You don’t even need a passport if you are a U.S. Citizen. Just get on a plane, dude.

Do you want to know what else is easy? Chartering a boat in the USVI. Let Sonic Charter know when you are arriving, and we will take care of the rest.

Why we weren’t worried about Cuba Tourism in 2016, and now in 2020! was last modified: April 1st, 2024 by admin
