Havana ©
Cuba's capital and major commercial center, Havana manages to be very old and very modern at the same time.
Eschew the tourist crowds and head to Palacio De Los Capitanes Generales and Castillo de la Real Fuerza. And it doesn't end there: don't miss a visit to El Malecon, take an in-depth tour of Museum of the Revolution (Museo de la Revolucion), steep yourself in history at El Morro, and appreciate the extensive heritage of Old Havana.

For photos, maps, more things to do, and more tourist information, go to the Havana custom trip planner.

Paris, France to Havana is an approximately 13-hour flight. You'll gain 6 hours traveling from Paris to Havana due to the time zone difference. Traveling from Paris in October, expect Havana to be warmer, temps between 35°C and 24°C. Wrap up your sightseeing by early afternoon on the 14th (Sat) to allow enough time to drive to Trinidad.

Built on sugar and seemingly preserved in molasses, the town of Trinidad attracts visitors with its well-aged 19th century architecture and rustic charm, showcasing the sounds, scents, and sights of days gone by.
Start off your visit on the 15th (Sun): admire the sheer force of Salto del Caburni, see the interesting displays at Romance Museum, make a trip to Trinidad de Cuba, then make a trip to Plaza Mayor, and finally pause for some serene contemplation at Iglesia Parroquial Mayor del Espiritu Santo. On the next day, examine the collection at Trinidad Architecture Museum, take a pleasant ride with a tour on horseback, then take in the spiritual surroundings of Convento de San Francisco de Asis, and finally take in the awesome beauty at Topes de Collantes.
