From the airport to Costa Morena is about a 40 minute drive. From Parque Cepedes (city square) is about a 30 minute drive. Expect to pay about 30CUC's one way.

It'll be around 40 minutes by cab to Santiago de Cuba. This year we were only paying 30 CUC's with a local taxi to go to Los Corales which is 6 kms. further up the road. Now a CubaTaxi may be about 5 CUC's more. CQ :))))

hi there - you can also jump on the staff bus if there is room for just a few pesos, but the trip will be a little longer - count on about an hour. I took a cab into the city a few years back and the driver picked his nose for the whole trip - YUCK !!!!...lol.

"and the driver picked his nose for the whole trip"

++++++++++++++++++++++

The whole way there??? That's a long drive!!!!!

Yes, taking a staff bus is an easy and cheap alternative for going to Santiago and taking a taxi from Santiago back to Costa Morena is much easier as there will be quite a few taxis to chose from and barter with. The newer and better shape of the taxi the faster and more comfortable the ride will probably be. From Costa Morena and even Los Corales/Carisol you sometimes have to order a taxi from Santiago an hour in advance. A bit of a pain as taxis around these resorts are not always readily available when you need one.
