In this video I show you how to take a cheap, communal taxi from the Vedado neighborhood of Havana, all the way to the Playas del Este beachs in Guanabo. The taxi fare is only about $2, so it’s really cheap and in my opinion, this is the best way to get tot he beach in Havana.
The Playas del Este are located in the eastern suburb of Havana, about 20 minutes away from downtown Havana. They are some of the most beautiful beaches in Cuba and locals flock to them by the thousands during the hot summer months. The sand is fine, the water is warm and calm. Very few tourists visit these beaches because there are no major resorts in the area and regular taxi service from Havana to the eastern beaches is relatively expensive. Follow the tips in this video and save tons of money on your next taxi ride to Guanabo beach!
