    It's simple. Fly into Nassau and board a fly direct to havana on havana air. When you fly back you fly into Nassau and then back to US.
    Take a boat and go to Cuba, and return via the Bahamas. You can take the short cut of South end of Andros and up through the tongue to check in fresh Creek Andros I believe it is. Clear out Bahamas and return home.
    You use to be able to fly into Mexico and go from Mexico to cuba and back to mexico and onto the us.
    It isn't illegal to goto Cuba it's illegal to spend money with the Cubans. So take a Canadian friend or other foreigner and have them "pay your way"

    Cubans won't stamp your passport they will stamp a price of paper you have to carry around with you in your passport along the insurance you have to purchase from the govt.
    There are no laws about you coming from Cuba to Bahamas. Bahamian customs doesn't care. They stamp your passport. Return to the US you look as if you were in bahamas

    What if he has no friends?
    Oh....what if his friends name is "Marrett"?
    Arguing with idiots is like playing chess with a pigeon... No matter how good you are, the bird is going to crap on the board and strut around like it won anyway.
    I AM NOT A RACIST

    Charter flight. Anyone who thinks they can go to Nassau (or anywhere else) and fly to Cuba undetected is incorrect. The WHTI changed all of that with "friendly sky" policies. Likely won't be an issue, but they know who goes.

    I went for fun. No religious (or other 11) purposes. I was allowed to bring back rum/cigars right through customs.

    Nice to hear the truth, instead of silly forum posts, where posters do not know or care.

    I'm not to sure you exactly know what your talking about. The WHTI does NOT track you it's a requirement for re entering the US. You must return to the US with proper identification. Or Arrive from home country with proper identification to enter the US.
    You most certainly CAN fly to cuba via nassua and have NO PROBLEMS with US customs either going to or coming from Cuba.

    I know atleast 6 people who have done this after your stated 2007. And way before the travel restrictions began to ease up.

    Taking a boat over is another way to go and not be bothered traveling through the Bahamas to and from Cuba.

    Here is the WHTI so you can get a better understanding and Finger Mullet you should open your mind up to possibilities and do some research.

    Western Hemisphere Travel Initiative
    What is the Western Hemisphere Travel Initiative (WHTI)?

    WHTI is the joint Department of State (DOS) and Department of Homeland Security (DHS) plan to implement a key 9/11 Commission recommendation and the statutory mandates of the Intelligence Reform and Terrorism Prevention Act of 2004 (IRTPA). IRTPA, in part, required the DHS and DOS to develop and implement a plan to require all travelers, U.S. citizens and foreign nationals alike, to present a passport or other acceptable document that denotes identity and citizenship when entering the United States.

    What is the goal of requiring secure documents?

    The goal is to strengthen border security while facilitating entry into the United States for U.S. citizens and legitimate international travelers, making the process more efficient and convenient.

    What types of documents are accepted for entry into the United States via air?

    U.S. citizens can present a valid: U.S. Passport; Trusted Traveler Program card (NEXUS, SENTRI or FAST); U.S. Military identification card when traveling on official orders; U.S. Merchant Mariner document when traveling in conjunction with official maritime business. Note that children are also required to present their own passport when traveling by air. (note: The Indian/tribal card can NOT be used for air travel).
    Requirements for lawful permanent residents of the United States are not changed by the implementation of WHTI. Lawful permanent residents must continue to present a valid Permanent Resident Card. A passport is not required.
    What types of documents are accepted for entry into the United States via land and sea?

    U.S. citizens can present a valid: U.S. Passport; Passport Card; Enhanced Driver’s License; Trusted Traveler Program card (NEXUS, SENTRI or FAST); U.S. Military identification card when traveling on official orders; U.S. Merchant Mariner document when traveling in conjunction with official maritime business; or Form I-872 American Indian Card, or (when available) Enhanced Tribal Card.
    U.S. and Canadian citizen children under the age of 16 (or under 19, if traveling with a school, religious group, or other youth group) need only present a birth certificate or other proof of citizenship. The birth certificate can be original, photocopy, or certified copy.
    WHTI does not affect U.S. Lawful Permanent Residents, who are still required to present their permanent resident card (Form I-551) or other valid evidence of permanent residence status.
    Canadian citizens can present a valid passport, Enhanced Driver’s License, or Trusted Traveler Program card (NEXUS, SENTRI or FAST).
    Bermudian citizens are required to present a valid passport.
    Mexican citizens, including children, are required to present a passport with visa, or a Border Crossing Card.
    U.S. citizens on closed-loop cruises (cruises that begin and end at the same U.S. port) are able to enter the United States with a birth certificate and government-issued photo ID. Please be aware that you may still be required to present a passport to enter the countries your cruise ship is visiting. Check with your cruise line to ensure you have the appropriate documents.
    What is an enhanced driver’s license?

    State-issued enhanced drivers licenses (EDLs) provide proof of identity and U.S. citizenship, are issued in a secure process, and include technology that makes travel easier. They provide travelers with a low-cost, convenient alternative for entering the United States from Canada, Mexico or the Caribbean through a land or sea port of entry, in addition to serving as a permit to drive.

    The Department has been working with states to enhance their driver’s licenses and identification documents to comply with travel rules under the Western Hemisphere Travel Initiative (WHTI), effective June 1, 2009.

    How do I get a passport?

    United States citizens can visit the State Department’s travel website or call the U.S. National Passport Information Center at (877) 4USA-PPT; TDD/TTY: (888) 874-7793.

    What if I don’t have the required documents when I travel to or return to the United States?

    Travelers without WHTI-compliant documents are likely to be delayed at the border as CBP officers work to verify identity and citizenship.

    Lol, it's always fun to read expert opinions on here. I said they know who goes. I never implied you can't go or it's impossible to go...just that it's not a secret.

    Our very own greggl is frothing, happier than a **** with a sack full of peckers, seeing Americans' desensitization towards that communist country.

    might emigrate.
