I did several years ago. It was a very fun and very humbling experience.
Unless it’s changed, you can’t use your American credit cards there so get cash ahead of time. I just went to my bank here and got it exchanged. No internet so print out addresses, directions, itinerary, etc.
You can do Havana in ~4 days and if you’re traveling outside Havana, a week should do it

Don’t drink tap water and ice there. Food options aren’t the best, very limited internet, know how to bargain for everything. Beautiful country and very nice people, but be careful of street scammers and prostitutes
