The most sophisticated city after Havana

Get lost in the city of maze.

Camagüey, Cuba’s third largest city is one of the most sophisticated place in Cuba.
It is a small port town founded in 1514. You will find that the streets of this city have many twists and turns, and intersect each other at odd angles, making it very easy to get lost like a maze. According to a legend, when Camagüey was settled in the 1500s, the citizens were frequently attacked by pirates and bandits, so they built the streets to make it difficult for outsiders to navigate the city.

How to get to Camagüey

Camagüey is located on a plain in the middle of its province, eastern part of Cuba, about 7 hours drive from Havana.

  • Approximately 2 hours by airplane from Havana
  • Approximately 9 hours by bus from Havana
  • Approximately 4 hours by car from Trinidad

 

By airplane:  From Havana, it takes about 1 hours and 30 minutes and there are 6 flights per week.

By bus:  From Havana, it takes about 8 hours and 30 minutes by bus and costs approximately $33 USD/CUC.

Víazul (www.viazul.com) has two daily buses from Havana to Camagüey and three buses to be back to Havana.

Make sure to book your bus ticket at least a day in advance, the buses frequently sell out a day in advance. You can book your tickets here, but prices are cheaper at the bus stations.

Renting a car is another option. Booking a car rental in Cuba is not easy, so make sure to book a car several weeks, if not months, in advance online.
