Have you managed to get official clearance to take your moto into Cuba? If so let us all into the secret so we can all enjoy that place before it becomes an extension of Florida. Ride safe.

We made ​​a lot of contacts with customs agents (Based in Cuba and Venezuela), shipping agent and consulates. Everything seems OK. I'm very optimist. But we never did it ...

Within 3 weeks I'll make sure that everything is confirmed.

For sure we will publish all the contacts and tips here HU !

Hi all,
We still in Caracas and that the news to whom want to go to Cuba from here:

Shipping agent & Customs:

Caracas => Expotran
- Sector Cabo Blanco, La Guaira - Maiquetia Galpon n1 Edo Vargas
- Contact: Sra Ines Morao imorao@expotran.com (+58) 212 716 56 35
La Habana => Transcargo
- Contact: Armando Carvajal arrastia@transcargo.transnet.cu
(+53) 7860 81 25

Key Requirements:
- Max 30 days tourist license
- "Autorizacion Vehicular" from Seniat (at Venezuala border)
- The process must be done in a corporate basis, not personal

Every thursday Cubana Aviacion Cargo, send around 5 to 10 bikes using those "channel". Of course, most of them are Cubans, but if the requirement above are ok, and you are available to a expend around US$ 2000 (just to go), so you can go.

Unfortable our travel budget not allow us to do it (2XUS$2000 just for the bike).

In a other hand, Venezula is much beautiful and enjoyable than we can imagine. He have fantastic days here and made valuable new friends from HU Caracas Community.

We change our plan and are going to Cartagena and ride north trought Central America.

Hope I could help.
