President Obama is making a historic trip to Cuba -- here's what every American should know before booking a flight themselves

President Obama left Andrews Air Force Base on Sunday for a historic three-day trip to Cuba — the first visit by an American president since Calvin Coolidge in 1928.

We’ll have lots of stories about our adventures on the island, which you’ll be able to find here.
