90 miles to Cuba. How to get there?

Once the wheels of our American Airlines charter plane screeched on the runway, signaling that we had landed on Cuban soil, a roar of applause started.

The only ones applauding were the Cuban Americans, visiting their families. The rest of us still had our noses pegged to the window. 



Conde Nast Traveler: Yes, You Can Still Visit Cuba Legally -And It's Safe!

On Sunday, I flew to a place that the U.S. State Department considers as risky as Pakistan, Russia, or Sudan.

Hurricane Irma: What you Need to Know

After making its way through the Caribbean, Hurricane Irma made landfall on Cuba’s northeastern shores Friday night. It was the first storm of this magnitude to reach the island in 85 years. Sadly, Irma claimed ten Cuban casualties and devastated swaths of sugarcane and agricultural crops. 

Thankfully, however, the eye of the storm veered north before reaching Havana, saving Cuba’s capital city and western provinces from the destruction that north-central coastal resort towns sustained.
