Intending to spend a few weeks in Cuba in March/April 2019, travelling from UK.
Hoping to hire a car and travel to Havana, Vinales, Cienfuegos, Trinidad, Sancti Spiritus, Camaguey, Santiago and Baracoa.

Not sure about flights but had intended to land in Havana and depart from Holguin. We had debated going out via Miami and getting over the time difference there before getting a short flight to Havana (which was actually cheaper than direct to Havana) but being put off by the complexity of being a guest of the USA and entering Cuba. Want to stay in nice hotels!!!

Nothing is fixed yet but keen to get any advice on car hire, driving, where to see, hotel recommendations, restaurants etc etc.

Thanks
David

I didn't get a response to this but we did the trip as planned, hiring a car and doing 1600 km. We had a fantastic time, seeing a lot of stuff you wouldn't see on a package.
Anybody after some tips on their tour please ask.
