Havana Airport Guide to Jose Marti International Havana Airport - HAV

Havana Airport Taxi

Taxi, along with buses, turns to be a wise decision to transfer between Havana Airport and downtown. A single trip takes between 20 to 30 minutes according to traffic conditions since Havana Airport is located in Boyeros, which is located 15 km away from Havana.

Official touristic taxis are yellow (there are 4 kinds of taxis in Cuba, but this is the only one that can pick up tourists).


At your arrival in Havana Airport, some people will approach you asking if you need a taxi. Don’t ride any taxi unless it is an official one to avoid scams. 


Find taxi ranks outside the Arrivals Hall of any of the airport terminals. 


The following taxi companies are available in Havana Airport:

- Taxi OK: +53 7 2049518
- Panataxi: +53 7 555555

Service hours: 24 hours. 


The estimated fare to get to downtown Havana from the airport is  20.00 – 25.00 CUC one way. Pantaxi turns to be the most affordable option, although fares need to be negotiated before departing.

In order to take a taxi, you should approach the taxi dispatcher and tell him / her your destination and you will get a price. Present it to the driver. Before departing, make sure the price is arranged, you can negotiate it there is no problem, and that the meter is switched on (just to avoid possible scams). 

Fixed prices:

- Havana Vieja (city centre): 25.00 to 30.00 CUC
- Vedado: 25.00 to 30.00 CUC
- Viñales: 110.00 CUC

Bici-taxi & coco-taxi

Although Bici-taxis are not allowed to pick up tourists, you can try to ride in any of them. You can negotiate fares and travel through Havana’s city center for just 2.00 CUC. 

Regarding Coco-taxis, they are a three-seat yellow scooter especially for tourists and fares are obviously just for tourists. You will have a really fun time riding one, just try it!
