I would like to visit San Miguel de los Banos in February but, so far, I haven't found any public transportation that could take me there from Cienfuegos or Santa Clara. Is there any way to get there if you don't rent a car in Cuba?

    Have you looked on Rome2Rio.com? My search showed bus routes from both. – Giorgio Jan 17 '17 at 15:20
  • My search showed bus combined with a taxi. No direct bus was shown. – Michał Urbaniak Jan 18 '17 at 9:12

Go to the nearest Astro Bus station (the inter-provincial buses for cubans) and you are very likely to find a private taxi waiting for desperate customers nearby. These taxis are usually shared with other customers, but since you are a tourist they will probably try to keep you alone and charge you a different (higher) price.

By the way Astro Buses are meant to be used by Cubans only, but from time to time they have allowed tourists to get in. I am not sure which situation you will encounter on your arrival, but taxis I am sure will be available, and it will always be way cheaper than renting a car.


There are many ways to get to San Miguel. There are bus, train available frequently, you can always rent a car or hitchhike on your way. Cubans love gringos so there is fairly a feasible chance available.

    "There are bus, train available frequently" - can you give me a hint? I already made my search with Viazul and didn't find anything. – Michał Urbaniak Jan 18 '17 at 13:54
