if you stay in one of the suggested hotels in the downtown
region of La Habana city, known as "Habana La Vieja", it will
cost much less than $100 per day.

Another American composer who attended several editions of
the "Spring in La Habana" Festival aside from Jon is Neil
Leonard. David Jaffe as well.

Another option that might make things easier is to try flying
the brand-new (monthly?) flights New York-La Habana. According
to the info I've read in some newspapers people allowed to take
in those flights are "researchers, journalists, people going for humanitarian
reasons, priests and any person for non-tourism
reason". Visas for people accepted on those flights are easier
to obtain. Please verify this info.
