There are many places to visit in Cuba with turistic attractions to offer. Each place has its own history and its own beauty to admire. Blue beaches, shining green countryside, the sunrise, the cockcrow, people's hospitality, diversity of flora and fauna, its own history, there are many reasons to visit Cuba.
Just as our discoverer Christopher Columbus said, “Cuba is the most beautiful land human eyes had ever seen”.
Therefore, I invite you to join me on this journey across the Country where I am sure you will enjoy each place you visit and everything you will do it will be a unique experience that you will never forget.
You can visit all those places using different ways:
1. Cuba4all Reizen offers the unique experience of renting a classic American car from the 50s with driver, who will be at your disposal to take you to all these places. This means you have the complete freedom of movement on the island and you can choose where to go and when to do it at your own pace. Besides being a much cheaper option than renting a modern car, you do not have the worry of driving in a completely unknown place and you will have a local driver with you with great knowledge of the destination that could help you with the language if needed.
2. Renting a modern car. This is the most expensive one (50 - 70 CUC daily + fuel, insurance etc). You should also know that sometimes it is very difficult to find available cars because the demand is usualy bigger than the offer. This is why we recommend you to rent the car with plenty of time in advance. It will be cheaper if you rent it during the low season: september, october, november, may and june. Just take in consideration that roads infrastructure in Cuba is limited and the signing is poor.
3. Using public transport:
♦ “Viazul” chain (http://www.viazul.com) has a bus fleet available with air conditioning and confort. It offers inter cities journeys and stops at convenience places for a brake and refreshments. I do not recommend taking the buses which are driving inside the cities. They are usually fully loaded, must be paid in the local curreny CUP, etc. Nevertheless if you try it surely you will be meeting the authentic Cuba and you should feel also like a real Cuban.
♦ There is also a fleet of Taxi's which belong to the “CUBATAXI” chain. They are quiet modern and could be found in the following colours: white, yellow or black and yellow. They are all very good choice to move inside the city. Usually working with taximeter and with prices a bit high.
4. Using private taxi's. They are most of the times old cars, mainly oldtimers from America and old cars from Russia. You can negotiate the price of your journey in advance. Their biggest advantage is that you can really save some money in comparison with the public taxi's. They are just much more economic.
There are lot of wonderful places to visit in Cuba but some of them you really should not miss. Here below you can find some of them shown by city:
