So, you’re finally getting down to Cuba, and plan on spending at least one day at the world-famous cities of Havana. Although technically not against the law if it’s part of a cultural exchange tour, going to Havana just for the sun and sand is “verboten” for visitors to the island. The drive from Varadero to Havana takes two-and-a-half-hours, give or take. Bus travel for tourists is not as fast as a private car, Varadero Taxi is going well over the posted speed limit. While the road between Havana and Varadero is probably the best long stretch of highway in Cuba, it is still a road, and not a highway, and excessive speed is ill-advised. Besides all the police checkpoints that require drivers to slow to 30 MPH, there are usually many Cuban motorcycle police units doing speed checks, and the number of officers on the road increases significantly in the summer months.
The other solution is to book a taxi with a driver who will drive you from Varadero to Havana. The trip is about 1 hour and half, so it’s going to be pretty light. If you travel with other people you can split the ride cost and enjoy the trip more “privately”.
A taxi from Varadero to Havana usually costs between 180 CUC and 250CUC for a sedan, and 280 CUC for a van. The bus ride on a government bus is 40 CUC per person, but It is not that much comfortable as much as a private taxi.
As you might know, internet connection in Cuba is not the best ever! It’s definitely improving but if you need to make reservations online and you already know your calendar it’s better if you book in advance your transfer from Varadero to Havana.
