An itinerary of a 1 week Cuba trip.

Here are two suggested itineraries for your tour to discover Cuba

Some advices

  • To travel around Cuba you use a Viazul bus or a shared taxi.
    Viazul is a public company that organizes tourist buses from one city to another. Search for more information, destinations and rates on their website. These buses usually need to be booked in advance.
    A shared taxi is a shared taxi. After booking a place, you will be redirected to your accommodation and taken with other tourists to your next destination. This form of transport is a bit less convenient, but faster and leaves you outside the door of your next accommodation. The price of a viazul bus and a collective taxi is about the same.
  • Do not try to visit too much and right away. The distances in Cuba are great and the roads are not always in optimal conditions. It is better to see a destination less than to see another place, but half.
  • Arrival and departure from Varadero. Flights to / from this destination are always cheaper.
  • VISA cards are the best option to get money from an ATM or a bank.
  • Upon arrival at Havana International Airport, you have no way of getting convertible pesos (CUC) from an ATM, since there are simply none.
    If you land in Varadero instead.
