When I was invited to the Andaz Scottsdale's opening night event, I immediately sent back my RSVP.

Last week, I flew into Cuba on the first flight from Miami to Havana since the 1960s. This marks a new era of travel to the island nation, and I'm here to give you the information you need to go there yourself!
Before my plane took off last week, it had been 55 long years since a commercial flight from Miami landed in Havana.
