Getting to the City Havana Jose Marti Airport HAV

If you don’t have a shuttle prearranged with your hotel, the best way to get to the city centre is by taxi or a car hire. Taxis can be found in front of the terminal building; a ride to downtown Havana takes around half an hour. Agree the fare with the driver before travelling as not all taxis have or use their meters.

Why Visit Havana?

Havana is a vibrant, artistic city that comes alive with festivals and cultural events all year round. It’s popular with British holidaymakers, often as a first or final stop on the way to Cuba’s beach resorts. If you love music and dance, you’ll be in your element in Havana. The city is home to dozens of salsa schools and hosts an international salsa festival with dance workshops, parties and shows in April. A visit to see the prestigious National Ballet of Cuba perform at the city’s Gran Teatro is a must. You can also enjoy jazz and traditional Cuban music at bars and cafes all over the city.
By day, explore the streets of historic Habana Viejo (Old Havana), where you can admire the city’s stunning baroque architecture and visit hip boutiques. The cobbled Calle Mercaderes is home to a number of quirky small museums, restored shops and restaurants. Later, wander along the Malecón, Havana’s atmospheric oceanfront boulevard, before heading up to the rooftop bar at La Flauta Mágica to relax with a mojito by the pool.

Don't Forget Before you Fly

You’ll need to get a tourist card before travelling to Cuba; for more information and advice, contact the Cuban Embassy. The local currency is the peso, and because it isn’t traded internationally, you can only exchange it when you arrive at the airport or at a bank. Keep in mind, too, that there are two different versions of the currency in Cuba: the Cuban National Pesos for locals (CUP) and the convertible peso for visitors (CUC). It’s best to bring British pounds to change into pesos. You should also check whether you need any immunisations before travelling to Cuba.
