During our stay at Santiago we will work in the city and we may visit surrounding places like Guantanamo and Baracoa (the roads may be difficult due to hurricane Mathew).

Some important notes:

1) This is a basic itinerary but keep in mind that it can and will be flexible. If we find that one of the areas is not interesting enough we will not stay there for 2 nights but we will move on to the next one. Due to this flexibility it is not possible to reserve our casas beforehand, so we will book rooms upon arrival. March usually is not a very busy season for Cuba. Casas and restaurants will have already been scouted in each place to minimise searching time.
2) The distances we cover between places are not more than 3 hours. Since the worst light for photography is between 11:30 and 3:00, we will be traveling during these hours so that we don’t lose the morning and afternoon working hours.
3) We will either travel by rented car or minivan and the cost will be shared by the participants. We will try our best to get good rates and minimise the cost. Besides that you should know that an average cost for a room in a casa is about 30-35 euros per night.
4) Until the date of the workshop we will be doing extensive research regarding interesting points and happenings in every destination to make sure that all of us have a productive and rewarding trip.
