I have a flight there in June, It'll be interesting to see what the actual restrictions are. Hopefully Jet Blue / AirBnB will provide refunds if it's truly restricted to family only.

This is only the beginning of a more hardline stance to come. Much of this is due to Cuba's support of the Maduro regime in Venezuela. They are even contemplating placing Cuba back on the US list of state sponsors of terrorism. For those USA'ers who consider Havana their Disneyworld, the end is around the corner.

My guess is there will still be loopholes and they won't police them like they don't police them now. Cuba really has no choice but to support the socialist regime in Venezuela. That's where they get their Oil, Diesel, and internet. But I get it. We'll see.

I agree with Brian. I’m sure there will still be a way. There always has.

You are free to do as you wish. Even break US law. Just be prepared to pay the price if you get caught. My2c.

I repeat... I just don't know how we choose n pick what dictators we rub elbows with. 

Cuban tanks in Venezuela? I think of you put your finger in the barrel of said tank cannons you might be able to stop them. 

Agree with @Ethernut... Cuba's govt has no choice but in the end it's just like divorce. The innocent get hurt the most. I just want it to all go away soon. I feel for the innocent in Venezuela and for the same in Cuba. Including my aunts and cousins who will surely feel the burn.

North Korea tested a new Cruise Missile today so this makes PERFECT sense. 🙄

As @ElJavi76 alluded to this won't hurt Raul, Maduro or any of their immediate circle. It WILL negatively affect the innocent citizens who have already been suffering for years.

Guess I’ll plan on my trip next week being my last, if they don’t cease travel before then

This isn't going to change to much. Just like pre-Obama era, go to any different country and then fly to Cuba. It's only affecting U.S. to Cuba travel. At least, that's what I got out of that. But anyway, don't get me started on Trump...

I’m sure it won’t dissuade any Americans who are committed to traveling there.

Just diplomatic tit-for-tat.

Has anybody seen any source on when this all takes effect?

One would have thought Trump would be normalising relations and ending the embargo so he could make out like a bandit on the re-development, not doing this. 

Very surprising.
