Although Americans tourists are banned from entering the country, I went under the journalism category.
It's only an hour flight, Cuban visa can be bought during check-in at the airline counter before departure, just don't forget your passport. I exchanged dollars into their convertible  (CUC) pesos upon arrival. I stayed at an hostel next to the baseball stadium. I focused on videotaping their culture alone rather than being somewhat biased traveling group with their hectic schedule. One day took a Soviet era Lada taxi to outskirts of Havana to visit a Deaf school. They asked me what we Deaf Americans do with our obsolete TTY as we are using VP nowadays, hopefully some organizations will donate those equipment. I felt like was blasted into the past, surrounded by all those vintage automobiles.



Deafies loves freebies, especially when they are giving away comics. Just keep in mind that this event is held annually the first Saturday in May nationally. It's also an opportunity to meet your the artists, and writers. Encourage your Deaf children to read and let them join in the fun dressing in character of their favorite heroes. 
Details and locations available on their Free Comic Book Day website.
