Driving Tips in Cuba.

If you have decided to rent a car in Cuba, there are some issues you should be aware of:

Roads are, for the most part, good, especially when compared with other nearby countries (only those in Puerto Rico would be of a similar quality), yet for many Europeans and US travellers, they can certainly seem lacking and poor.

The “Autovía Central” (Central Highway) crosses the country from one side to the other, being the most important communications link in Cuba. In the exit to La Havana, it features four lanes for each direction and is relatively well signalled. However, as we grow distant from the capital, signs and quality decrease, lanes are reduced to two, and potholes are common.

Despite all this, the flatness of the land and the lack of traffic make driving easy. High speeds may not be safe, as animals frequently cross the roads, also making night driving not recommended.

The rest of roads have varying qualities and can range from a very nice asphalt to dirt trails only fit for goats. Should you want to rent a car in La Havana or Varadero, we would advise you to stick to the traditional typical routes visiting spots such as Playa Girón, Trinidad, Cienfuegos, Soroa, Valle de Viñales, Pinar del Río, or ciénaga de Zapata (Zapata’s swamp). Any kind of car is fit for these tours, since roads are well preserved. If you want to visit locations such as Santiago de Cuba, Baracoa, or Guardalavaca, you should note that not all cars would be useful.

The roads between Santiago-Guantánamo-Baracoa and Santiago-Holguín-Bayamo are acceptable, but the rest of roads in the eastern region are poor, so an all-terrain is required.
