The Good, the Bad and the Ugly
I was in Cuba (Havana, Cienfuegos, Trinidad, Vinales, Pinar del Rio Sorora Feb 1-13, 2013.
Good - weather, nature, architechture.
Bad - food, shopping.
Ugly - poverty, diesal fumes.

Re. The land that time forgot
You might also wish to visit the Old Square. Don't be put off by its name in Spanish, which literally translates as 'New Square' as this is the title that was given to it shortly after being unveiled!

The land that time forgot
I was interested in Old Havana the most compared to other parts of the Cuban capital and I hope it never changes. The guide I had said that things have stayed the same as they were in the late 1950s with old buildings, cars, and other items from that era. Time has stopped here and anyone with an interest in Cuban history should head here. Also a great scenic walking area.

Re. The finest collections of Cuban art
I don't think you would have been overcharged. Did you notice that there were two buildings? It's 8 CUC to visit both and 5 CUC to visit just one of them.

The finest collections of Cuban art
Even though I'm not particularly a fan of art or museums, I loved the National Museum of Beautiful Arts of Cuba. There were a lot of new pieces but I particularly enjoyed the glimpse at colonial Cuba that was offered by some of the older work. Not sure if I was overcharged for entrance though.

The home of a genius
We are literature lovers, so the visit to Ernest Hemingway was a must for us. It's known as the Fincia Vigia if you're going to ask the locals or a taxi driver about it and this is where some of the best novels and novellas of all time were penned. Just wish we could have gone inside!
