The latest in expanded options for travel from the U.S. to Cuba: Soon you'll be able to use TripAdvisor to book hotels, flights, short-term rentals, and cultural tours for your trips to that Caribbean island nation, thanks to a license granted by the federal government.
The popular travel website expects to begin offering those services within the next few months, but your reason for visiting Cuba will still have to fall into one of 12 approved categories, including family visits, academic programs, or religious activities.
TripAdvisor now joins several U.S. hotel companies and airlines that have also been given permission to expand into the Communist-led country. Airbnb is there, too.
These developments have all come about as a result of President Obama's decision to restore diplomatic relations with Cuba in 2014.
