While tourism is still not officially allowed as a reason to go to Cuba, you can enter for 12 different reasons. The most common reason is “Supporting the Cuban People”. This means you will be doing activities such as renting a room in a private Cuban residence, eating at privately owned Cuban restaurants, and shopping at privately owned stores run by a self-employed Cuban etc. Even if you mark tourist on the Cuban visa application form, you will get a visa that states tourist on it and is perfectly legal to enter Cuba with but you would tell the immigration officials you are there to support the Cuban people.
