Now Boarding Flights to Cuba

It is very exciting to read about the new flights to Cuba 

Now the rules have changed slightly as there is flights to Cuba  have been approved.

So will you jump on JetBlue site and schedule your trip...let's try that...

SFO to Santa Clara, Cuba for Thanksgiving because I think that is going to be awesome way to spend turkey day :).
For the benefit of bringing two bags my trip was with a layover in Fort Lauderdale with just four hours.
At just $1200 plus dollars for a nonrefundable ticket it is a good deal and if I want to bring only 1 bag I can save $399 dollars.

If I want a refundable ticket the price ticked up a little higher ($200) but ...now I have to find a hotel right?
That is when this popped up on the JetBlue.com travel site
*******

When booking a hotel in Cuba, you must be a U.S. resident living in the U.S., or a US citizen who resides in the US or abroad.
