If you have a month or more to spare, then feel free to go with the wind, otherwise pre-book everything with an experienced travel company. You may “reserve” something and find it it’s not available when you arrive.
Havana obviously! Havana does not represent the entirety Cuba but if someone goes to Cuba without staying a few nights in Havana (an excursion does not count, I’m afraid!) I don’t believe he/she can claim to have been to Cuba … apologies to those spending two weeks in a resort! Full disclosure, I am a habanero.
I once drove from Holguin, in the east of Cuba, to Havana, in the west. My co-pilot was my pregnant wife, Sandra. It was a very odd but nevertheless interesting experience. We stopped in difference places impromptu but planned all our overnight stays. Having our own car allowed us to reach attractions really easily and gave us the freedom to travel at our own tempo.
