Is it unethical for Americans to visit Cuba?

Recently, I took one of the first commercial flights from the U.S. to Cuba to spend a week in Havana and Cienfuegos, taking in the sights and sounds of a country relatively few Americans had been able to explore over the past 50 years because of an American trade embargo.

I reveled in the experience of a place unlike any other I’d seen, with amazing waterfalls and beaches, beautiful, brightly-painted homes and friendly residents eager to speak to us, many of whom had never met Americans before. But while I treasured the trip — the knowledge I gained, the people I met and the country’s colorful cars, cigars, music, happy people and mojitos — I also saw up close an undercurrent of sadness I couldn’t quite shake, making it difficult now to answer other Americans asking me if they should visit, too.
