Vacation or Business?: Jay-Z, Beyonce & His Mom Tour Cuba (VIDEO/ PHOTOS)

Celebrating their fifth wedding anniversary in Cuba, Beyoncé and Jay-Z snap back photos at paparazzi Friday  from their Havana hotel balcony. You can even see Jigga man's mom hanging out with the couple in some of the photos as they tour Cuba...

Even though Cubans were excited to see the power couple, they were quickly criticized for their trip. America's 51-year embargo makes it illegal for U.S. citizens to travel to Cuba solely for tourism. Travelers can visit the country legally by obtaining a "cultural exchange" license, however.

 So was Bey and Jay's trip for business or pleasure?

Mauricio Claver-Carone, the Executive Director of Cuba Democracy Advocates in Washington, D.C., a group dedicated to promoting democracy in the Caribbean country, blasted the hip-hop power couple for vacationing in the communist nation.

"There are women getting beaten on a daily basis, women who are being jailed for no reason ... people are fighting for their freedom," 

he told TMZ, claiming Beyonce and Jay-Z's failed to educate themselves on Cuba's human rights violations before making the trip.

"It’s extremely insensitive," 

he added.

The U.S. Treasury Department's Office of Foreign Assets Control, which approves travel to the country, would not comment on Beyonce and Jay-Z's individual case.
