We went from Jaruco to Hershey and even though its a rough ride we loved it. It stops in different small towns with locals getting on and off. Great way to discover Cuba.

You can go directly in to the station and get your tickets there, no necessary a reservation. I have been going there and I am giving free walking tours to there. Visit guruwalk
