Relations between Cuba and the U.S. have been warming, and as they do the barriers to U.S. travel in Cuba have been eroding. Although trade with Cuba is still officially banned, travel has become much easier since January 2015, when the Obama administration expanded the categories of authorized travel to the Caribbean island nation from just a few to 12. Of particular importance is the “educational activities” category.

Tourism, strictly speaking, is still forbidden, but the expanded categories incorporate huge gray areas of wiggle room that make it much easier to travel to Cuba for essentially tourist-type activities. This opens the door for interested Americans to participate in small tours such as the Cuba on Classic & Modern Bikes tour being organized by Eligio Arturi at Mototouring in Milan, Italy.
