A few last minute Cuba questions! (two week trip)

Jump to last reply

Hi all :) I've been a lurker for the past couple weeks in preparation for a three week trip to Cuba. There is a lot of incredible question and answer content on this forum so I've found most of my answers in previous posts already

That said, I had a couple of my own before heading off in a few weeks.

- I'm thinking of booking a room in Mylena y Otto private rooms in vedado (www.privateroomsmylenayotto.com). Based on the reviews I've read online this place sounds incredible (hosts, location). It almost sounds too good to be true, is this a legitimate class particular like any other I would find on CubaJunky?

-I'm going to keep my schedule flexible and only plan a bit of my jumping off point in Havana. Is it fairly easy for a tourist to show up at a Viazul bus station and hop on a bus to another city or should I plan much further in advance?

- For now my itinerary includes Havana, Viñales, and Trinidad. I'm a bit concerned that this is the normal first-time-visitor itinerary. I'd like to add one lesser traveled destination to my itinerary. Would Cienfuegos offer a differentiated experience from Trinidad?

- Are there any neat cultural experiences this forum would recommend? I'm not asking for an exhaustive list, but if there was one amazing event you went to or cultural experience you had, I'd love to hear about it. A friend told me about chicken fighting in Havana which I will likely look into.

Thanks so much!
