- Cuba is a wonderful, fascinating country; beautifully lush, lovely colonial architecture, colourful buildings and old cars; music everywhere and wonderfully cheap cocktails. It's great to see a place not very commercial and none of the shopping brands you see wherever you go in the world. Signs of the revolution and it's history still very much around. Catch it before it gets too touristy.
Tips would be that the walking on the trip in the Sierra Maestra is strenous not moderate and it is hard to get out of the whole thing at that point in the trip so you need to give it proper consideration. The food in that part for the two days, especially breakfast is very minimal. You do need to take things to eat up with you. Also go prepared for mosquitos.
