    This is a good short trip to get a feel for Cuba. A little more emphasis on genuine culture and nightlife, more authentic and livelier food options would make a difference. You can't control the weather of course! Chilly beach resort was not fun!

    I felt that the beach extension could have been either a full two days or the last Havana day could have been earlier or another stop considered en route.

    Perhaps it would be worth checking with people each day as to food requirements as several of us would be happy to eat full meals less often

    Vinales would be well worth a longer stay, perhaps overnight.
