I think it would be very difficult to see so much of Cuba in 2 weeks by any other means. Of course, this implies a lot of travelling and living out of a suitcase which may not suit everybody. I really felt we had seen a lot of the "real" Cuba , both positive and negative. I was shocked by the living conditions in Baracoa, for example, but impressed by the way people dealt with their conditions, with beautifully turned out schoolchildren, and the pleasantness and welcome displayed by the people. Our guide was fantastic, good humoured, kind and always at hand ..by no means a 9 to 5 job. He was so enthusiastic and clearly loved his country.
