We spent 3 weeks in Cuba this January/February. While we were super excited and happy that we were able to visit Cuba there are definitely some logistical issues with visiting for three weeks.

Havana – 3 Days, 3 Nights
Vinales – 3 Days, 3 Nights
Trinidad – 7 Days, 7 Nights
Havana – 5 Days, 4 Nights
Personally, we think that 7 days is about 4 too many in Trinidad. In hindsight, we probably could have cut our trip down to save money by staying less time in Trinidad. Or we could have opted to go to some of the beautiful Caribbean beaches that we missed. (At least we saw them in Tulum!)
To get to Cuba we flew in and out of Cancun. This was fairly straightforward and economical and we definitely would suggest it.
