2. very brief

vinales: a must for the country

trinidad: stunning!

santiago: the musical capital

havana: maybe a week!

santa clara: if you are into revolutionary history

camaguey: if you want an interesting non-touristy city

that's a sample, make sure you get to at least santiago, trinidad, and vinales!!!!!

4. granma

i suggest going to santa clara trinidad and then on granma province and the sierra maestra. I just returned from 2 weeks and had no problem making it from havana to the above mentioned places mostly hitching rides.......but taking astro to manzanillo from havana and viazul back from santa clara to havana. by the way hiking up to pico turquino is possible from Villa Santo Domingo. I would call ahead to reserve a guide though. Have fun!

7. well...

...I just did 3 weeks in Cuba. I spent almost 2 weeks in Havana and the rest of the time in Trinidad and Vinales. Vinales is beautiful if you want to see the country side and Trinidad is lovely and has nice beaches. Havana is muy bonita. I just loved Havana.
