I did an 8 day group tour through Cuba, and then spent an extra two days in Havana. I would have liked to do it alone but it seemed too difficult to organise while still in Australia, and I didn't fancy turning up in a town alone, not speaking the language, without having a place to stay. This first post is mostly going to feature short stops we made in the first two days before and after Cienfuegos, and following will be posts on Trinidad, Viñales, and of course, Havana.
A small town we stopped in for lunch.
A stop at a cenote (a sinkhole).
Museo Giron, about the failed American-backed invasion of the Bay of Pigs.
We had one night in Cienfuegos and had a walking tour in the evening.
It has these amazing grand French style buildings. I would've liked to see it in daylight.
Throughout the trip we stayed in casa particulares, which are B&B accommodations people open out of their own homes. They were all really comfortable, and had private bathrooms, which I always appreciate.
Che Guevara mausoleum.
Santa Clara, where we visited a monument/museum about the capture of a supplies train led by Che Guevara during the revolution.
