If you are looking for information about a Taxi from Havana Airport to Varadero, you are probably not very happy with your trip to Cuba, since you think you have started with the left foot. Many things that don’t fit right here. First, your flight arrives at the Havana Airport and the place where you are staying is in Varadero, which is 150km away, and the worst thing is that in Varadero there is an International Airport also but surely your Travel Agency does not operate with any airline that flies to Juan G. Gómez (Varadero Airport) directly. The second is that you probably want to return to Havana to spend some days in the capital, so you will have to pay for another Taxi from Varadero to Havana, but wait! Do not despair !!! The good news is that you are going to visit one of the most emblematic capitals of the world as well as one of the most beautiful beaches and in this article, we will give you a wide range of options so that you can get the most out of everything. So we are going to divide this article into several sections to make it easier for each of the readers to find their specific case.
What is your case?
BOOK A TAXI FROM HAVANA AIRPORT TO VARADERO
If you only want to book a Taxi from Havana Airport to Varadero, there are basically two options. You can book online or you can take a taxi directly once you have arrived at the Havana airport.
Booking online a taxi from Havana to Varadero with us is very simple, you just have to indicate the information of your flight and the place where you want us to leave you in Varadero, our travel coordinator would contact you to confirm the cab. The price of a taxi from Havana Airport to Varadero is $130 CUC for a total of 3 passengers, you will not have to pay absolutely anything to make the reservation, it is free! The payment will be made the same day of the service once you have reached your destination.
Taking a Taxi directly at the Airport
If Online booking is not your style, then there are some tips that I would like to give you in case you plan to take a taxi directly at Havana Airport. The first thing is that only a few taxis in Cuba have a taxi-meter, and those who have it, have it “broken” That is why it is advisable to adjust the price with the taxi driver before getting into the taxi, since once at the destination the taxi driver can claim any price for the service. Usually, when you take a taxi from Havana Airport to Varadero the price ranges are between $150 CUC – $170 CUC, never agree to pay more than that. Do not appear to be desperate when talking to the taxi driver, whatever the price they propose, always request a discount, and finally… use the magic words! If their price offer doesn’t convince you, just tell them: “Well, I’m going to talk to another taxi driver” that always works!
I WANT TO RESERVE A TAXI BUT I AM ALSO INTERESTED TO KNOW A LITTLE VARADERO
For this particular case, you can send a request directly to the agency with which you have booked your taxi from Havana to Varadero. In our company: Havana 60 Classic Cars Tours, we do not charge any additional charges to show the city of Varadero to our clients, it is as simple as driving on the main street of Varadero instead of on the highway. Many drivers drive on the highway in order to reach their destination faster, but we have a commitment to our customers and it is to achieve their total satisfaction.
I WANT TO BOOK A TAXI AND GET THE MOST OUT OF THE TRIP
Here I would recommend doing the Varadero Tour from Havana instead of just a Transfer. This option is viable if your flight arrives before noon, as it gives time to know several places of interest such as Coral Beach, Saturn Cave and Josone Park, as well as spend some time to bathe in the beautiful beaches of Varadero, which was chosen in 2019 as the second-best beach in the world according to TripAdvisor. And this is where the true recommendation of this section comes from, and in this beach area where you will bathe, it is where the sand is finest and the most crystalline water, in fact, the best area of Varadero beach is located from the 10th street to the Sol Palmeras hotel, and the irony is that from Sol Palmeras onwards you will find most of the hotels, so, even if you do not take this offer but decide to take a tour to the center of Varadero from your hotel, do not miss the opportunity and bring a swimsuit.

I WANT TO BOOK A TAXI AND THEN ANOTHER FROM VARADERO TO HAVANA AIRPORT
Here are two possible options, the first is that you just want to return to the Havana Airport and you are not interested at all visiting Havana (which is very unlikely) or maybe, yes, you are interested in Havana, but your flight leaves early from the Airport and you have no room for anything else, and the other case is that your flight leaves in the afternoon and here we can take advantage out of the Transfer.
My flight leaves early
In case your flight leaves early and you have already booked another transfer with us, we invite you to book a new transfer from Varadero to Havana and you will have a 10% discount for reseating two services of the same category.
My flight leaves late
In case your flight leaves late and you have to do the “Check-In” at the airport after 4:00 pm, then our suggestion would be to book a Tour to Havana instead of a Transfer. Yes, I know that at this point you have many questions like. How much more for a tour? And what do we do with the luggage? And after the Tour, would you leave us at the Havana Airport? Now I’ll explain everything with a case study. Suppose you are a group of 2 adults and 1 child, and you also bring two large and two small suitcases, you are staying in Varadero and have to do the “Check-In” at the Havana Airport at 5:00 pm, but the “Check-Out ” in the hotel is at 12:00 pm !!, it doesn’t matter! You will lose only 4 hours without been at the beach but you will spend a full day touring in Havana! Instead of booking a Transfer for $ 130 CUC, we would suggest a Tour-Transfer for $ 160 CUC. Yes! that is correct! Only for $ 30 CUC more, we will send you a Classic car, with driver and guide, which will pick you up at 8:00 am in the lobby of your hotel, they will be with you all day touring the most beautiful places in Havana and at 4:30 pm they will leave you at the Jose Marti Airport. Your luggage will travel with you all the time in the trunk of the car.
I WANT TO BOOK A TAXI AND THEN ANOTHER FROM VARADERO TO HAVANA TO SPEND SOME DAYS IN HAVANA
Unlike the previous case, in this case, you do not need to lose 4 hours of beach the day of your Check-out at the Varadero hotel, although it is worth considering since if you do decide to leave at 8:00 am to do a Transfer-Tour to Havana, would have advanced many of the places you want to know in the Cuban capital since all our tours are personalized to what our clients want to do, you can simply choose which places to visit. Our guide and driver would leave you at your accommodation along with your luggage at 4:00 pm. If you plan to stay in Havana for more than 2 days, you may want to keep an eye on our post of a day trip from Havana to Vinales.
