combining puerto rico with cuba

We are from the Uk and want to fly from Puerto Rico to Cunba and then back to the UK. Is it possible to do a direct flight between the 2 islands?

What are the highlights of each island?

Puerto Rico is part of the US and there are travel restirction between the US and Cuba. Your best bet would be to check the web travel sites. I know you can get there from Canada. I would think you would be able to do so from some other island in the Caribe.

You can get to Cuba from the Dominican Republic and many other places, just not the USA.

Many Puerto Ricans go to Cuba via Panama City, I think it's with Copa Airlines, but I am not too sure about that.

You can get to Cuba via Nassau or Mexico City and Cancun too...

Don't forget to purchase your tourist visa card $ 25 cuban convertable peso's around $ 30.00 usd...Bring british sterling too to exchange...%10 penalty for usd...

Yes, from San Juan to Panama, once you reach Panama then to Havana.

Copa Airlines has daily flights from San Juan.

There are many puerto ricans who visit Cuba every year, including many well known personalities and i think almost everyone related with the arts has visited our sister country at least once.
