Evening Taxi from airport to old Havana

Hi mates,

Some long questions but if you could reply just a few - I would be very grateful!

I would like to check if there are plenty of taxis at around 1030pm from airport to old Havana. How long is the journey? This may sound silly - but is there any recourse if we found that the driver has overcharged us (or taken a much longer route)? Are taxis metered? How do we identify"legal" taxis?

Also, are money changers at the airport open till late? Does using CAD or EUR provide better rates? Our flights arrive around 10pm.

Thanks!

If there is a flight arriving, there are plenty of taxis waiting and the cadeca (exchange bureau) will be open. The normal price for a taxi is 20-25CUC to get from the airport to the old Habana, the journey takes about 20-25 minutes. Negotiate the price before getting in. Because once you're in, you are stuck with the price they will want you charge you. Only legal taxis are at the airport, don't worry.

You can see the daily rates for money exchange in Cuba, so you can decide what currency is best for you. US is usually the worst currency since there is a 10% penalty for exchanging it in Cuba. Us always gets you 87CUC for 100$US.
