Most people do not know this, but if you were born in Cuba, and you left the island between January First, 1959 and the last day of December of 1970, and you now live outside the island and you want to visit your family, the Cuban government requires that you hand over to them $170.00.
In my opinion, this is an extortion and a SCAM.
I was recently scammed by an unscrupulous capitalist businessman in Tampa, who passes himself as a "progressive" Cuban. So, buyer beware!
