There is a host of different taxi cars with modern fleets geared toward the tourist trade. They have all been reunited under Ministry of Transport management and, although they continue to carry the names of the previous companies such as Panataxi, Taxi OK, and Transgaviota, they are now all called Cubataxi or Havana Taxi and can be called on a central number (tel. 7/855-5555-59). All tourist taxis have meters. Rates vary somewhat, but most of the meters start at CUC$1,5 for the first kilometer and then charge between CUC$.50 and CUC$1.9for each additional kilometer.
Other options include horse-drawn carriages; the so-called Coco Taxis (tel. 7/873-1411), yellow, round, open-air two seaters powered by a motorcycle; and antique cars that range from a Ford Model T to a 1957 Chevy. Both the horse-drawn carriages and Coco Taxis cost from CUC$5 to CUC$10 per hour, with a minimum of around CUC$3. but be aware they’re pretty drafty and they drive fast.

All are illegal for tourists, although it's the driver, not the rider, who is at risk.
