Yes, that's right: traveling to Cuba for tourist activities is still prohibited under the updated rules. However, the regulations continue to allow for travel to Cuba for some specific reasons like religious celebrations, public performances, professional research, family visits, journalistic endeavors, and government business. Ultimately, the administration's latest easing of the travel restrictions as well as other new changes involving economic sanctions add further blows to the embargo imposed against Cuba, although only Congress has the power to end it, per the report.
The bottom line is that you still can't hop on a plane and vacation in Cuba, no matter how boozy and charming Anthony Bourdain makes the place look. But going there now will at least be less of a pain in the ass.
