You’ve arrived in Cuba! Now, how do you get to Havana City? Do you take a risk and look for a taxi when you arrive or do you play it smart and save money?
I’m a fan of saving money the smart way, so I took the Shuttle Transfer hosted by Cuba Travel Services. It’s the best way to get into the city. They speak English (thank god) and are super friendly. They also allow you to take a free checked bag on the shuttle (a lot of taxis or buses will charge extra for this). For $30.00 they meet and greet you at the airport and drop you off at your hotel or casa particular.
The best part is that you can order your shuttle pick up on-line and pay in US dollars. This will save you from having to exchange USD in the long line at the airport. In most cases you can get a better exchange rate at your hotel or an exchange center. As a bonus they gave me a free bottle of cold water! Don’t under estimate how hot it is in Cuba, a cold water was just the thing I needed to cool me down.
