We are planning a 10 day trip to Cuba in early April and are seeking advice on an itinerary. I guess we'll end up doing the usual touristy things in that time but would like to experience authentic Cuba too. Some questions:
1. How much time to spend in Havana? We arrive on a Monday evening and would like to experience some music - but do we have to be there at the weekend for that? Any recommendations/
2. We were also thinking of travelling to Cienfuegos, Trinidad, Santa Clara - anywhere else we should go? How much time in each?
3 We would also like to spend a few days on a beach, but don't fancy any of the beaches near Havana or Varadero? Wondered about Playa Ancon near Trinidad?
Would be grateful for any advice on how we can make best use of our 10 days, where to stay and in what order.
