Travelling from Old Havana to Varadero

1 month ago

Hi, everyone. I'm going to be in Cuba in September. On the 14th of that month, I need to be transported from Havana to Varadero. But I want transportation advice that isn't expensive because I've seen that some are very expensive.
And it would be excellent if you know if there's like online shopping, what are the timetables and seasons in case of existence and prices.
Thank you very much if you have that information.

Hi, I was in April and I tell you my experience. I went to the bus station, there is indeed a company called viazul and the price is cheaper than if you go by private car or taxi. Without EMBARGO, these buses were in bad shape and took longer to arrive. What I did was get out of the terminal and out front negotiate with a taxi driver (yellow taxi) and in the end I ended up paying just a little more but it was private and obvious more comfortable, i.e. it was totally worth the number of people. Back I was picked up by the same cab driver, very punctual and kind. Greetings

Carlos I thank you for your info, I hope I have good luck as you did, I have one question left. How much you paid back and forth, I'm consulting you because I'd like more or less to have a reference to what I could reach or get close to the negotiating moment.

For three people if I'm not bad... like 60 CUC a way, something like that I don't remember... what I did was go out and ask several people, and ask and ask for a discount...They live off tourism basically and in the end you can have a little advantage, in fact transport to the boathouse is offered by many private cars, taxis...the latter option is a little better considering that some of these cars are more "new." By bus, if you add the taxi to the terminal and the terminal to the hotel by boat, in the end it comes out almost the same and more uncomfortable.
