If you have an entire week to spend in the wonderful Caribbean country, Cuba, I suggest you not to stay only in Havana or lie on one of the beaches. Yes, I know what you are thinking about: Havana is a fantastic city and there are dozens of attractions here. In spite of it, I suggest you to make a great one-week-tour in Cuba. You should start your trip in Havana and return there after a week full of memorable experiences. Of course, one week isn’t enough to see and try everything in this spectacular country, but you can still see dozens of outstanding attractions, cities and towns, beaches, monuments and others. Read the following article which will help you organizing a one-week-tour in Cuba.

Days 1 and 2

You should start your great one-week-tour in the fascinating capital city. Havana is a vibrant city, being home to dozens of amazing visitor attractions, colonial buildings, museums, theatres, restaurants, bars and so on. Dedicate your first and second days to Havana. Visit as many attractions as you can in this magnificent city: the World Heritage Site, Old Havana with its attractions: the Capitolio Nacional, the Morro Castle, the Great Theatre of Havana, the Cathedral of Havana, the Museum of Fine Arts, the Castillo de la Real Fuerza, the El Floridita bar and so on. Visit the squares of Havana, get out on the Malecon (the city’s most popular avenue, along the north coast). In the afternoon head towards Trinidad.

Days 3 and 4

Start your third day by visiting Trinidad, the fascinating town which was inscribed (together with the adjacent Valle de los Ingenios) on the list of UNESCO’s World Heritage Sites in 1988. These two World Heritage Sites are extremely popular among visitors of Cuba. I suggest you not to miss them either. Dedicate your third day to visit Trinidad’s fantastic museums and other attractions: its cathedral, the Plaza Mayor and take a rest on its fantastic beach, the Playa Ancon. Your fourth day should be dedicated to the spectacular Valle de los Ingenios (Valley of the Sugar Mills). The valley is well-known for its still standing sugar mills, natural beauty, the Manaca Iznaga estate with its tower and so on. These two World Heritage Sites will surely make your third and fourth days remarkable.

Days 5, 6 and 7

On the fifth day of your one-week-tour you should visit Santa Clara with its monuments dedicated to the Cuban Revolution, such as the Mausoleum of Che Guevara. You should also visit the Teatro La Caridad and the Parque Vidal. From this tiny town head towards La Cayería del Norte. You will find here fine beaches and fantastic resorts. Get some rest by the end of the fifth day and dedicate your sixth day to the beaches. You can also opt for visiting Remedios and practice some outstanding activities, such as scuba diving or watersports. By the end of this amazing one-week-tour go back to Havana and get out on the airport. You will surely return home with some unforgettable experiences.
