Entertainment and Sports

Are you an entertainer, athlete, or other competitor who wishes to travel to Cuba for a competition or exhibition? Are you an amateur or semi-professional athlete or team traveling to Cuba for an athletic competition? You can apply for a license as long as the event you wish to attend will be open for attendance, and in relevant situations, participation by the Cuban public. All profits that you or the team make must be donated to an independent nongovernmental organization in Cuba or a U.S.-based charity with an objective, to the extent possible, of helping the Cuban people.

Two companies operate convenient flights from Tampa to Cuba. For more information visit ABC Charters and Cuba Travel Services .
