Life is all about seizing the moment and being happy.



      This double-decker bus goes up and down the strip of hotels along Varadero
   beach all day,you can hop on and hop off around the town with the same
   It is a good deal if you decide to spend an entire day in downtown.



        The green train comes about every hour (one ticket per day gets you on
    and off as often as you like).

    BUT don’t be surprised, the driver could stop any time and go for a
    coffee break, and you just don’t know how long it will be.

    Well, if the thing is not on your expected time, just be patient and
    relax because you are on your VACATION.



          Coco Taxi — These are hollow, egg-shaped, 3 – wheeled vehicles and
     driven by women only.
     They are fast and fun.

         怕翻个当时没敢坐,现在想来有些后悔,可爱的"Lady Bug" 多少也算古巴的特色之一呵!


        Or rent a Scooter to get around Varadero . Someone said that the moped
    may not be well maintained, so we didn’t give a try.

    Horse carriages dominate the roadways of Varadero, the prices vary from
    driver to driver… 


      That day we were on the way back to our hotel, there was a horse Carriage
   in the same direction and a young driver asked us for a ride. 
   I told him that we prefer to explore city and town on foot and decided
   this wasn’t for us. 
   He followed us and kept dropping the price down, since he had already
   headed in that direction and something is always better than nothing he
   will usually snap up your money (even a little) and take you on your way.
   Plus, he is really a nice looking guy, all right, all right, we take it I
   said to the young guy


      Overall, we really like this option – rent a bicycle (or free) and it
   takes 15~20 minutes to bike to town , you will have more fun and at your
   own pace.   


       TIP#10: Bargain for the fare and be sure to ask all drivers how much
   BEFORE you get on.

    Very nice photos and travel tips.I was in Cuba two years ago, beautiful cities and great people. I\’d like to go there again. I should have mentioned that most of the taxis have meters, but of course the coco taxis do not.  For this reason you normally negotiate a rate up-front, or you hire one at an hourly rate (normally 3 USD’s minimum).

    Thanks for your big tip ^_^!
    But I don\’t think so the price is right at lest this year, coco-taxies charge 0.5 $/km , they are much cheaper than a cab.

    This small open vehicles, looks like an empty coconut , don\’t look very safe to me.
    Be patient and relax… I mean we should actually say it to ourself that we hear ourself saying those words.
     Sit back and relax on your vacation is the key point.
    Have a nice weekend!
