          Hi , We are arriving next week. How much will a taxi cost from the resort to Havana airport? If I am not a diamond club member and want to scuba dive on a Tuesday, can I pay a fee to dive that day? it is the only day that works for our schedule. Thanks

          Dear Olivia, A taxi from the hotel to Havana airport is approximately 100CUC. Regarding your question, you could always go to the Diving center on site and ask for their additional services. Regards,
