The Best Cuba Travel Itinerary for 2015: Part 1

At this stage you’re either thinking about traveling to Cuba, or you’ve already booked! Either way, congratulations, you’ve come to the right spot! Cuba is a magical country, full of rich history and all the idealistic aspects of a country truly stuck in a time warp. But, things are beginning to change quickly, so now really is time to travel to Cuba! (If you’re an America and worried about getting how to travel to Cuba, we’ve got you covered for that as well in our Americans Traveling to Cuba Illegally Guide.)

One of the biggest questions we get about traveling to Cuba is “where should we go?” So with that being said, “how much time do you have?” 7 Days in Cuba Experiencing this incredible country within the week is a tight squeeze, but if you haven’t got a lot of time it’s definitely better than no time in Cuba. Honestly if we only had a week in Cuba we’d almost be tempted to just stay in Havana for the whole time.
