My opinion for Havana would be to stay in a Casa somewhere in the old section of the city.

Okay.
I looked through the recent posting of this thread and read the famous trip report and still need a lot of info so maybe you all can help with that?

I am trying to put together a trip for a group of older jewish women that would like to travel to Cuba by cruise. Here are some questions.
How do you go about booking hotels?
Can you bring in meat, fish and cheese?
How do you go about "legally" visiting cuba as a group?
What are the attractions to see in Havana?

So i have been reading alot of conflicting reports about traveling to cuba under the new trump rules.
Has anyone traveled to cuba in the past 2-3 months. Is it really a issue?

The U.S. blocks 83 Cuban hotels with ties to the Cuban government. It includes all of the large international hotel chains.

Alaska Airlines terminates their LAX-HAV route due to low demand, and the new rules (about which there is still no clarity, annoyingly).
