Florida Sen. Marco Rubio was taking a tour Tuesday of the U.S. Naval Station in Guantanano Bay, the first trip to Cuba for the Cuban-American politician who was born in Miami.

Rubio will be conducting an oversight of the facility, touring the base and meeting with the commander of Joint Task Force Guantanamo Bay.

The 41-year-old, who is a member of the Senate Intelligence Committee, will also tour the Expeditionary Legal Complex, where military tribunals of detainees have recently begun.

Rubio will be in Guantanamo Bay throughout the day and will return to Miami Tuesday evening.

Rubio's parents were born in Cuba and emigrated to the United States in the 1950s.
