Getting In & Out of Cuba
The best way to get in and out of Cuba is by airplane although, a handful of cruise lines also operate trips, but these are rare occasions.
Cuba has two major international airports through which it's best entering: Varadero and Havana. They're the biggest hubs, while the smaller airport near Santiago de Cuba is a third option to try.
Various airlines link Cuba directly through the Havana José Martí International Airport with multiple Latin American and Caribbean countries, as well as many in Western Europe, in addition to Russia, Canada and the United States.
It's important to note that the vast majority of flights operated through Havana's airport are regular, scheduled flights.
Whereas, many of the flights operating through the Juan Gualberto Gómez Airport serving Varadero are mostly seasonal and/or charter flights.
As for the mentioned airport near Santa Clara, called: Abel Santamaría Airport, there are even less flights available, their vast majority going out to Canadian destinations. Most of them charter and seasonal.
Cuba's ports tend to be closed and tourists aren't allowed to walk around them.
Private ships may enter through the Marina Hemingway in Havana and the Marina Acua Varadero.
