Cuba - last minute itinerary tweeks.

Jump to last reply

We fly into Havana on Monday, and have 4 nights there before we plan to set off to explore the rest of the island, for which we have 17 more nights. This is our first trip to Cuba, hopefully not our last but there's a lot of the world to see so we want to make the most of it.

We have considered flying straight down to Santiago de Cuba, but can't get flights until the following Tuesday, which leaves us with the problem of what to do with the intervening days, and splits up the trip too much. We have also considered not trying to get down to Santiago at all, and just restrict ourselves to using Viazul buses and taxis to explore the western half of the island but that seems a waste when we have [I think] long enough to get to Santiago and back.

Though I would prefer to go to Santiago straight after we leave Havana, I've found flights back a couple of days before we are due to fly out, which I think gives us enough time if things go wrong so make alternative arrangements. This would give us 15 nights to get from Havana to Santiago. does this sound worthwhile? or are we attempting too much?

Any suggestions?
