I went in Feb as a US citizen. When you book the flight the airline will have you select one of twelve reasons to go. For my trip, I went with people to people/educational. They say to maintain a full schedule of meaningful interactions with the Cuban people and to maintain documents for five years, but decipher that however you wish.
