Sounds crazy as it's just a hop away. For a $1k one can fly direct from london with Virgin into havana.

I've also figured out that from Aus the easiest way is via LA, into Mexico & then Cuba.

But I'm still unsure of the best way via South America to take advantage of some time in Rio.

Cuba has made its way to the top of my bucket list!

.....just trying to figure it all out....
The US embargo has made Cuba travel artificially expensive from Puerto Rico. It stinks, since Puerto Rico and Cuba are sister islands.

The Caribbean in general is an expensive place to fly. I consider anything under US$200AI a good fare to get me off the island. Even if it's to get me onto another island that's only 20 minutes away by plane.
