Getting around

By taxi: The best way to get around Cuba is in its state-run official taxis. They charge by distance rather than time, and a short trip will cost only a few dollars (make sure the driver has the meter running). Fees for longer trips are best negotiated up front.

By cocotaxi: A fun alternative to regular taxis are the state-run Cocotaxis, which are three-seat scooters. These aren’t metered, so ask the price before setting off.


Events

Gone fishing: In May, the Hemingway Fishing Tournament takes place. It’s named after author and Havana resident Ernest Hemingway, who enjoyed plenty of fishing trips aboard his boat.

Carnivals: No visit to the Caribbean would be complete without the sights and sounds of a carnival, and the Santiago de Cuba (July) and Havana (August) carnivals never disappoint. The streets explode with colour, music, food and dance well into the sultry summer evenings.
