Celebrities Beyonce and Jay-Z look out at the crowd from their balcony at the Saratoga Hotel in Havana on Friday, April 5. The couple were photographed in Havana last week, apparently celebrating their fifth wedding anniversary on the island. Two Republican lawmakers are asking a government agency to look into a recent trip to Cuba by the couple, suggesting they violated restrictions on travel to the communist island. stringer/AFP/Getty Images

In 2012, the Obama administration lifted some of the restrictions on travel to the country. Rules require a strict itinerary for vacationers. stringer/AFP/Getty Images
