Juan Carlos Garcia Granda, Minister of Tourism for Cuba.
Most of Cuba is open to tourism, with the exception of the provinces of Havana, Ciego de Avila and Sancti Spiritus, which remain under COVID-19 restrictions.
All international airports are open in Cuba, except HAV, where operations are limited to humanitarian and cargo flights.
“Air only” passengers can now enter the country through all open airports, with the exception of CCC, which is open only for visitors who booked air and hotel packages, said Cuba's Minister of Tourism, Juan Carlos Garcia Granda. Cruises are permitted from 19OCT.
Car rental operations and tour and excursion operators can also resume operations, said Garcia Granda, except in Havana, Trinidad and the cays. In Cayo Coco, Cayo Guillermo and Cayo Cruz, excursions can take place only within the cays.
The Minister noted that tourists can stay in private rental homes (B&B) in all regions with the exception of Sancti Spíritus, Ciego de Avila and Havana. Cuban locals can stay at tourist facilities shared by international visitors, as long as they come from provinces other than the three under restriction.
