Transport in Cuba

Five ways to travel to Cuba and arrive in Viñales:

Rent a car

We recommend that you book your car at the same time as your plane tickets. The Cuban car park is not massive, it is better to go early. We recommend the NovelaCuba agency.
Pros: being independent, flexible working hours.
Cons: Damaged road network, requires more time and attention.
