For more than 50 years Cuba was the only country forbidden to U.S. travelers by a unilateral illegal blockade imposed by the U.S. Congress. You can use The Cuban Handshake to learn about opportunities now available to U.S. residents to experience the beauty and culture of Cuba and the friendship of the Cuban people firsthand.
Despite some changes, U.S. citizens are still denied numerous achievements of Cuban medical and biotechnological science by the rigid rules that support the blockade. Read The Cuban Handshake to learn about efforts to change this policy and make truly free trade and communications available to these close neighbors.
Ending the blockade, completely lifting the travel ban to Cuba and encouraging our two countries to continue the process of resolving their differences are the focus of this blog. Its pages are intended to promote understanding rather than confrontation; and value the friendship between the people of both countries rather than war.
