We were greeted at the José Martí International Airport by both a bright, sunny day and a reminder that we "are not in Kansas anymore":
a huge billboard of Comandante Ché.
Our itinerary consisted of:
Havana - 3 nights at the Hotel Saratoga in Old Havana
Cienfuegos - 2 nights at the Hotel La Unión
Trinidad - 3 nights at the Hotel Ronda
