Cancun-Havana-Miami? how can I do it?

I am in Cancun, Mexico. I wish to go one-way to Havana, Cuba. From there, I'd like to enter the United States. I have a Canadian passport. My prefered point of entry is Miami. From there, I will work my way to New York, and exit the country from there (to Europe).

My question is can this be done? If it is too much of a problem finding a flight out of Havana (direct to Miami), I will simply skip Cuba and head to the U.S direct from Cancun. I need insight from a traveller who has done this route.

Cancun-Havan-Miami. What I don't want to do is go Cancun-Havana-Cancun-Miami.

Mostly, because I don't have lot of funds.

Hi Sandy,
Sounds like you are having quite an adventure! I hope you are keeping a journal. It's fun & gives traveling a more tangible sense.

Good luck in getting to Cuba. As you probably have learned already, the US has no contact w/Cuba. You'll need to fly to Havana from Mexico City (Cancun?) & then on to Canada. Canadians have such a sane society!
I hope you'll let me know how you've made out once you get home!

Yep, as fas as I can recall, there still are no direct flights to any american city from the US, apart from Guantanamo Bay of course...;)

You could take a short boat ride to Miami...;)

So far as I know, there's no way to get to the US from Cuba. Even if you have a Canadian passport, you can't travel into the US from Cuba even if you somehow find a means of transport.

Actually, there are flights from Havana to Cuba, mainly for international workers, journalists and those with a US permit to enter Cuba (yes, they do give them out). Theres a few charter airlines that make the route, and I think Continental and American might flight it as well.

That being said, because of the rarity and demand of the flights, you are much better off flying back to Cancun and getting a flight to Miami from there. It should be much cheaper.
