 Unofficial Havana Airport Taxi Service or Hire Points


It is illegal for tourists to ride in anything other than the official government taxis. 


However, it is often easier to wave down one of the old Chevys or Ladas. When riding in an illegal taxi, negotiate the fare ahead of time. The fare in illegal taxis will be no cheaper than the official taxi fare. Around the city, taking illegal taxis should be no problem.

IHateTaxis.com has a mixed recommendation on the unofficial Havana Airport taxi service.

Taking an illegal taxi to or from the airport may attract the attention of the police.

 Pirate Havana Airport Taxi Serivce


Touts will often approach you in the Havana Airport offering Havana Airport taxi services using unlicensed cars.

IHateTaxis.com does not recommend the pirate Havana Airport taxi service.

We do not recommend using pirate taxis as you will be ripped off.
