looking for feedback on 10 day itinery

by derekglynn »

been reading up on vinales and looks like it might be worthwhile having a least 1 full day there, 2 nights, especially if you are into trekking and and cycling as we are. Yes?

Can yo get private taxis from havanna to vinales, and from vinales - cuenfugos?..that might be fsater than the busses?


thanks

RE: looking for feedback on 10 day itinery

Hi all,
we are heading to cuba for 10 days in two weeks and would appreciate feedback on our proposed itinerary.

Fri May 22; arrive noon Havana
Sat; Havana
Sun; Havana
Mon; organized coach tour of vinales, return to Havana
Tues; bus to cienfuegos, stay somewhere where there's diving, such as Guajimico or in cienfuegos
Wed; 2nd night in diving location
Thurs;  bus to Trinidad, stay in town
Fri;  Trinidad
Sat; bus to Havana
Sun, 6am flight home

Some questions/thoughts
-We would prefer to spend close to a full day in vinales cycling the region but I think this would require 2 nights (cycling on day 2), which would eat into the Trinidad time, and would also mean we'd have to go all the way from vinales to Triniday in one day. Would you agree?...bus tour seems to be a good compromise, while not out favorite way to see a place
-Is cienfuegos worth 2 nights, in order to facilitate the diving, or should we just go to Trinidad, and do it from there, possibly visit cienfuegos by taxi. We will only do 1 or 2 dives.
-we also wanted to spend 2-3 days in a resort, probably in Trinidad, and get both beach and cultural options but we read that the Trinidad resorts a pretty poor and would be better off to stay in town, would you agree?

Thanks for any feedback
derek
