Thanks for posting your review of the Camino de Cuba trip on the website - I'm sure the information you have given will be a great help to those who are planning to do the trip, and it's also great for us to receive this feedback as it means we can monitor and improve our trips.
I agree that Havana is a wonderful place, and that while we do include the first night of the trip in Havana, extra time in the city is definitely a good idea if you can stay on for a couple of nights at the end of the trip. Our sales team will happily book these additional nights so that you can explore the city at a leisurely pace and also relax after what is quite a busy itinerary.
Your point about flexibility is also valid - unfortunately overbooking of hotels is rife in Cuba, and this can lead to last-minute changes of accommodation. We always try our hardest to confirm the itinerary exactly as it is featured in the trip notes, but sometimes having to switch hotels is unavoidable, especially during busy seasons such as over the Christmas / New Year period when you travelled.
I'm glad that you enjoyed the holiday and found Cuba to be a wonderful country. If you don't fancy the walking though, we also have more conventional bus-based trips, as well as two great cycling itineraries which allow us to see the country from another perspective.
Thanks again for your comments, and I hope you enjoy your future trips with Exodus.
