Afer 9 H of flight, we arrive in end according to midday with Havana by the flight of AIR FRANCE. We change the euros brought directly to the exchange office of the air terminal of arrival.

One says it immediately to you, if you want to really see country in Cuba, forget the train, the bus and even more the stop. There is almost no public transport national in Cuba if in fact tourist buses connect the principal cities with Havana. Therefore you will see Cubans everywhere making stop during hours on the roadside.
The best of the solutions is to rent a car (45 $CUC/day, insurance included/understood). Personally, we rented Peugeot 307 with agency MICAR in Havana to launch us to the adventure in the country. Very good agency.
