Check out these cheap flights from Chicago to Havana, Cuba for only $203 roundtrip with Copa Airlines. Only 90 miles from Florida, Cuba has long been a source of fascination for Americans. The country’s proximity combined with nearly six decades of travel restrictions created a romantic myth around the Pearl of Antilles for many living in the United States. When President Barack Obama rolled back regulations in 2014, making it legal (and easier) for Americans to visit the country without a tour group, there was an expectation of the floodgates opening for Yankee visitors. Major airlines worked for years to hammer out contracts allowing commercial flights while companies like Airbnb scrambled to ramp up Cuban inventory on their website. And by many counts, tourism was up. In 2017, 600,000 American travelers (without Cuban family ties) visited the nation, which is more than six-times the pre-Obama level.
Please note, the Trump administration announced tight new restrictions on American travel and trade with Cuba.
