Traffic does and don’ts in Cuba
When driving take care to obey Cuban traffic regulations, which are largely similar to those in Europe. There is, however, one big exception: Cubans often stay in the overtaking lane because of the many carts, cyclists and pedestrians using the right lane.
Please bear in mind that in Cuba not many people own cars. In a hire car you will often have the road to yourself, but you should still be on the alert for potholes. Take special care to park your hire car only where there are parking attendants watching the cars or in garages with security. Modern petrol stations are open 24/7 on Cuba. So a hire car is a good way of getting around and from A to B.

If you are traveling to the Caribbean island of Cuba, you are probably going to arrive in one of the tourist centres. These include Playa Guardalavaca, Varadero, Cayo Coco, the Havana region and Valle de Viñales and are well distributed over the island. To get to know Cuba outside these popular destinations hire a car through TUI Cars.
Cuba has so much to offer: for example Santiago de Cuba, in the south of the island. It is not only the second-largest city in Cuba, but is also known as the second capital as it was the main town on the island until the middle of the 16th century. In a hire car you can easily drive the 180 kilometres that separate Playa Guardalavaca from Santiago de Cuba.
