A special atmosphere full of the revolutionary past, welcoming locals, exotic landscapes with magnificent beaches – you can find everything in Cuba, one of the most attractive destinations on the planet.

Our fellow citizens can benefit from the simplified rules of entry, and it's another reason to visit this blessed land.

The best choice for comfortable movement across the island is to rent a car.

Renting a car in Cuba

Rental companies have a large selection of vehicles. For the trip to Cuba, the best choice will be a comfortable SUV because country roads are usually bad. Renting a car like this is more expensive but you will be safe from any trouble.

The requirements for those who want to rent a car:

  • the driver must be 21 years old or more;
  • a passport and an international driving license;
  • the ability to leave a cash deposit for the car.

The road laws on the island are practically the same as in Russia and the routes between towns won't be complicated by busy roads.

Colonial and bright

We all associate Cuba with retro cars, cigars, and rum. But this isn't the only thing that the island can offer. The great part of its heritage is the colonial towns with their inspiring architecture. A car is what you need if you want to visit them.

Let the first point on the map be Cienfuegos, a cozy town named after the Cuban revolutionary. Here you can see the only arch of triumph of the country. But the main pride of Cienfuegos is its theatre. Knowing how much the Cubans love energetic and frivolous dances like salsa, it is difficult to imagine that classical art is so well developed here. Curious spectators may even get to go backstage.

Trinidad is a real museum town and a UNESCO World Heritage site. Without exaggeration, walking in this town will be a journey into the past, because the whole architecture has been preserved in its original form. The architecture is something that the locals like to highlight – Trinidad's buildings are painted with lots of different colours and shades.

After walking on cobblestone streets, let your eyes have a rest from all these bright colours. Not far from the central square, near the Historical Museum, there is a souvenir shop with a viewing platform on the roof. You will have a wonderful view of the Trinidad mountains.

When you're in Cuba with a rented car, you just have to see the memorial dedicated to Che Guevara. Santa Clara is the place commemorating the Argentinian who gave his life for the Cuban Revolution. This is where the decisive battle against the authoritarian regime of the President Batista occurred. And it is here that the ashes of the legendary revolutionary are kept now.
