but this time they tell me they no longer sell the visa in Miami, and it's only obtained once in the Havana
airport. Weirder still was the fact that NO ONE in any of the 8 agencies could tell me the price. One chick
guessed it would be about 25 CUC, but wasn't sure.
Marazul came out as the cheapest re the RT flights, @ $350. The rest ranged from $369 to around $399.
I gave the date of travel as 30 or 31 Oct, still low season.
Can any of you who fly directly to HAV from MIA tell me about the current visa scene?

1$ 350 to 400 for the 30 minutes flight from Miami to Havana is an enormous prize. In 30 minutes the crew will not even have time to serve a coffee or let you read the morning paper. The price of the visa is almost nothing compared to the costly flight. Do they charge for booking and terminal fees and luggage allowances as well?

3Yes, the price of the flight is a rip off, but the alternative for me is hitting boring Nassau for a
few hours, then making the Havana connection, These two flights would cost even more.than
the Marazul flight.
By the way, when bull shitting to the Marazul agent this time, she claimed I would not have
to show proof of my marriage to my ex Cubana wife in order to purchase the ticket to Havana.
However, the need to prove a family tie when returning to the US is an open question. Last time
I didn;t have to, but those border situations are always in flux.

4A Tourist Card was $15.00 until recently in Cancun. If they could get away with it at Mexicana they'd overcharge for it and / or your luggage. Very annoying.

5I want to add - be careful with that paper. When I went through the x-ray on entrance they took my passport and set it on the machine. Later I realized that they had taken out the tourist card. That cost me 25-30 dollars that I had to pay on leaving. I learned that there is a black market for these documents, people can sneak out using them and I guess they can wash them like a check.
On subsequent trips I was heavily questioned about this lost Visa/Tourist Card. It was a big deal as others have noted, it puts you in the crosshairs for having possibly sold it to the black market.
