Getting around in Cuba

Location: Cuba

OK, there are nice tourist buses in Cuba (cant call them good after what we had in Arg and Mex) but by far and away the most common forms of transport are much more interesting...

The ´Camello´ bus so called because it has two humps - it can hold 300+ people...in complete discomfort!

Old classics from the 50´s - most are held together by rope, but a few are actually in good shape.

Oxen and cart...

Another shot of the camello.

Hire cars, but beware the pot holes in the roads - sometimes safer to drive on the side of the road...

...Oxen and sled!

Horse and carriage.

oh and at regional borders you will get fumigated!

Coco-taxis.

Old trucks converted to hold passengers in the back...hopefully far enough away from the plumes of black smoke coming from the exhaust.

And the bike. The bike is the ´transport of the people´, and is so common that on the roads trucks and buses will slow to give way before overtaking!
