Of course i know U.S is not contact w/ Cuba.

but some days ago, i met a guy from Florida and he said

it's possible to go Cuba from Florida.

but i can't really sure he is right or not.

I'm Korean and is there any direct flight or ship from Florida

to Cuba?

of course i don't want any ilregal route like a small boat.
(i'm travelling with my family)
somebody has done this, please leave any informations for me.

I think the only legal way to get from the US to Cuba is through Toronto, Canada or Mexico City... I'm pretty sure there is no direct flights (short of military transports... to.. you know ... where...) or boats...

Air Jamaica is flying from Montago Bay to Cuba,that is 100% sure,I have my ticket.
Maybe you could get a flight from San Juan/Puerto Rico,otherwise is Canada or Mexico/Cozumel if I'm right.
Forget about ship/ferry,there is NOTHING like this.

Yeah flying to Mexico then to Cuba would probably work out fine.

There actually are flights from Miami to Cuba. They are mostly charters, and cater to those who have official permission from the US government to travel to Cuba. The operators of these flights will not let you on without the information from the US government indicating they are fine with you travelling. The US government will allow the following to travel to Cuba (decided on a case by case basis): Official government travelers, Journalists, Persons visiting close relatives once in 3 years, Full-time professionals conducting research, Full-time professionals attending certain international conferences, and Persons who have received a specific license.

The Office of Foreign Assets Control of the U.S. Treasury Department administers the Travel Restrictions. If you are subject to U.S. jurisdiction or you do not consider yourself to be but reside in the United States or are planning to leave from and/or reenter the United States, regardless of citizenship, residency, or immigration status, or point of departure from Cuba, you must travel under one of the categories of people permitted to travel to Cuba. (for more details, see Common Ground).

For most travellers, you are much better off flying through another country like Mexico or Canada to get to Cuba. Flights will be much cheaper, and will involve much less hassle.
