How to Reach Havana - The Easiest Way to Reach Havana


  • By Air: The Jose Marti International Airport is the best way to reach and is well connected to most major airports. While getting from the airport to your hotel remember to use a Government Taxi. By rule, tourists are not allowed to use anything except for those.


  • By Taxi: The most convenient form of transport is Taxi. Tourists are only allowed to use government taxis so if you are going near a government building make sure to use one of those. It isnt a bad idea to use the illegal taxis otherwise (and many tourists do) but be aware of this rule.
  • By Public Transport: The Public Transport system while quite good is not extensive enough. So if you want to see a lot of places, it is better if you dont rely on the public transports.
  • On Foot: Most of the tourist sites in old Havana are very close together so it is best to walk in the area.
