Cuba - Eastern loop – Havana to Havana 2-3 weeks
The start point of any trip through Cuba will probably be Havana. Start your trip by spending a 2 or 3 days in la Havana to discover Cuba’s wonderful capital and get used to the Cuban way of life.
From Havana take a bus to Trinidad. You could easily spend a couple of days here enjoying the lively city center, the massive and impressive colonial houses, and not to forget, some quality beach time on some of Cuba’s finest nearby beaches, like Playa Ancón, which are easily accessible by “Coco” Taxi.
Your next stop may be Sancti Spiritus, or if you want to hurry up, go straight to Camaguey. Both cities are very pleasant and very worth wile a visit. From Camaguey continue to Santiago de Cuba, the favorite destination of many travelers. Santiago is a great town, home town to many of Cuba’s native music styles. You may want to plan some time to stay here to experience everything that is here to see or do, plan around 3 or 4 days. From Santiago take a bus to Baracoa, which has a truly paradisiacal location in very eastern part of the country with some of the most phenomenal beaches you’ll ever see. It’s a true paradise and there are a lot of amazing sights in the near surroundings as well. After a couple of relaxing days it’s time to return. Given the restricted bus schedules you’ll probably head back to Santiago where you could spend another night (or two). If you have time left stop in Holguin and Santa Clara to see the monuments dedicated to Che Guevara on your way back to Havana.
