Hello...U've two options:
1- by plane: Cubana, the cuban air company have daily flights from Havana to Santiago and viceversa.
2- by bus: Via Azul bus company have daily departures to the main touristical places all around cuba. Havana-Santiago ticket is about 45 cuc and takes around 10h to get from one place to the other.

Forget about trains, they are really bad and U can be up to 24 hours stuck in a train to get from Havana to Santiago.... good luck!

one more option: share a taxi..maybe when you at the bus-station you find other people who want to may cost faster..and sure u can stop where you want too.I did it that way from Trinidad..Good luck and have fun:)

There are some hotel with helicopter. it cost about140 canadian. And it takes about 20 minutes to go to Havana...or Santiago...or Holguin.
I have seen it in the hotel: Lunas Y Mares in Holguin.
Never took it. Because it is a Russian helicopter..made in 1950. But they say it goes well..
