Enjoy Havana with its natural charm
Moving Around in Havana have many possibilities. However It is very pleasant If combine the view of the sea while enjoying a very attractive architecture, you can undertake the longest walk of the city, its Malecòn.
It extends from El Vedado to Old Havana.
Find several kinds of transport in Havana
Urban buses: these are usually difficult to approach in the schedules of entry and exit of the work centers which encourages us to take
Collective taxis “Almendrones”: modest prices, several people, mainly locals, jump on the same car
Private taxis: Our favorite, you shall ask beforehand for the rate
Coco Taxis: Is another option appreciated by those who visit us, they are tricycles covered with an open spherical structure on the front, it is fun and give
you the possibility to enjoy a panoramic view along the way.
Havana Bus Tour: Tour the tourist areas of the city
Horse-drawn cars: Excellent for a nice ride! even when I should mention I feel bad for the horses
Bicitaxi: made by craftsmen built under the principle of the bicycle, it is used for short stretches. Great for the environment
Bicycles: can be hired in small private businesses.
Car rental: There are several state agencies for car rental such as Rex, Havanautos, Cubacar, they are rented by tourism mostly.
Traveling in Cuba
Interprovincial bus: You can travel by “Viazul”, it is the bus line recommended for its seriousness, comfort, and good prices. It must be
reserved in advance.
What to do if there is no availability in the Viazul buses, very simple! The Island has a private system of collective taxis that are coordinated in the city where you are for the next destination.
We cannot stop commenting on the railway system which has not been able to achieve quality and we are working on reviving it.
Because of its historical character, we mention the Hershey Train, the only electric train in Cuba, a relic built a century ago. This museum train leaves from the neighborhood of Casa Blanca in Havana and ends
in Matanzas with a duration of almost four hours, as you might guess … sometimes it has been left in the middle of the road.
