Colleen (or anyone else with advice),

I noticed in your other post that you're going back to Cuba this summer and I thought you might have some advice for me on how to get into cuba. I'm very, very interested in going, see the country on the inside, see what it's really like. I'd love to take some spanish courses and/or volunteer, but I have yet to find any programs that have any visa authorization right now. I don't particularly want to sneak in through Mexico. Do you have any advice?

Thanks.
Kim

Definitely don't go illegally, the fines are steep. I went a couple of summers ago for a little over a week with a medical aid group. So, we were able to obtain visas (educational and humanitarian aid) from the US. We still had to fly out of Toronto to get there. One guy that went down with us was staying the whole summer to teach English. I think he was going through a study abroad program through Mich State Univ. My advice would be to look for similar groups as I think (and you've probably found) that finding study abroad programs that go there will be few and far between. Good luck, if you make it there you'll find it was worth the effort.
