My boyfriend and I are flying to Cuba at the end of January and are trying to plan out our two weeks. We would like advice from Cuba specialists/regulars on our itinerary.
We fly into Holguin and have booked an internal flight to Havana straight away, we have also booked four nights in a resort near Holguin at the end.
The itinerary we have considered is this:
3 nights Havana
2 nights Vinales
3 nights Trinidad
1 night Camagüey
2 nights Santiago de Cuba
Final 4 nights resort near Holguin.
We are planning to travel by bus or taxi depending on the price we can get. We are keen to see as much of Cuba as possible but are aware this means a lot of time spent in transit. We are interested in historical and cultural sights and good beaches.
Our question is: Should we cut out the Camagüey and Santiago De Cuba leg of the journey to stay longer in the other places? In your opinions are they worth the extra travel?
Also any general comments on the itinerary are welcome!
