What shouldn't we miss in Havana?

We're a couple going to Havana for just three days in February. We are going by ourselves, not on a tour, so we want to make a list of interesting things to do, good restaurants, sites, and music venues (although we don't like to stay out very late, we love to hear music!). [more inside]

Any experiences with self-directed person-to-person travel to Cuba?

We would like to go to Havana on the person-to-person license, which one does not have to apply for anymore. Apparently you just have to have a self-made itinerary that you can show to the US when coming home. We want to go cheaply, flying independently on one of the new flights from NYC to Havana, and staying at an Air BnB while we are in Havana. [more inside]

Travel to Cuba

My friends and I want to take advantage of new flights Cuba opening up in November. You still have to fit into an approved travel category. How do we go about this without travel agency or agent? Is that even possible just yet?

Cell service in Cuba, 2016 edition

(previously, 2005). Looks like a trip to Cuba will in fact go down in September. Cursory research indicates that the cell network there is GSM and that there is no US roaming in place (not a shock). Any pointers, tips, useful links? [more inside]

To Cuba and Back, While (Mostly) Following the Rules

Does a stand alone translation tool like this exist?

The Google Translate app is awesome on my Droid 3 Android phone, especially the new conversation mode however it does not have an offline mode. I will be traveling where there is no convenient, fast, or affordable internet or cell service, specifically Cuba. Is there app or stand alone alternative that you know of? I especially like the speech to speech aspect of the conversation mode in google translate. English to Spanish and Spanish to English is what I am looking for.
