comment Is it technically illegal for US citizens to visit Cuba?
The post you mentioned says "In fact, I’ve heard that no American has been fined for traveling to Cuba in the past 10 years,". This is the generalization I was referring to. I realized now that I assumed you also wrote that post, which might not be the case.

Your post about how to go to Cuba is very interesting, but I would prefer you were more careful about generalizations. It took me less than 10 seconds to find a documented example of a tourist that have been fined for doing such a trip.

comment What's the cheapest way to fly to Cuba?
Just adding two more items to your list: Air-transat (cheap, but with extremely bad customer service), and "Cubana de Aviación", which is also very cheap.

comment The cheapest and quickest way to get from Cuba to India
Charter flights from Toronto or Montreal in Canada for example are quite cheap, +-250$ one-way, and there are many flights from those cities to India.

comment Are there any cheap ways to get from Jamaica to Cuba?
Any ship that docks in a Cuban bay will be forbidden to dock in any bay of US territory. Maybe this is why it is not easy to get to/from Cuba by ship.

comment Vegetarian dishes in Cuba
The main reason for vegetarians to have a bad time in Cuba is not for lack of vegetables, since vegetables are in general cheaper than meat. The main reason is the Cuban culture, where vegetarianism is seen as a bad word.

@hippietrail The plate is actually called "Moors and Christians" ("Moros y cristianos" in Spanish) and it is usually prepared with pork-based products such as bacon and sausages.

@jwenting I guess Cuba is not like other communist countries then, since I know for a fact that you can keep your passport.

comment What do Cuban power plugs look like?
Great answer!. By the way, the 110V thing is just theoretical, I never got more than 100V in my former appartment :)

comment Are there countries other than the Netherlands that support hitchhiking?
About hitching in Cuba, only cars from state-owned companies are required to pick up hitchers, and some times the company charges a (ridiculously small) fee. Private cars, taxis, cars from the army or from high-rank government officials, are all exempt from this requirement. By the way, inside Havana there are also "azules" (blue), with the same function as "amarillos", just dressed with a different color.
