taxi from vinales to Trinidad

Hi all

I have heard of people organising a taxi or private transfer from Vinales to Trinidad.

I was wondering if this is possible and if so what is a price estimate for this?

Thanks for your help

The price will vary depending on how you want to do it. If you take a metered taxi it is going to cost you quite a bit.

You will almost certainly be able to negotiate a better price with a privately operated taxi. While I have never taken a taxi that distance, I have hired one for the day, approx 12 hour duration for 80 CUC.

If you are at a resort talk to one of the staff members that works front of house (main lobby). I found my taxi driver through the front door security guard. Your mileage may vary with this advice.

Basically, ask around and negotiate with a driver, I am positive you can get a price that will be somewhere between 100-140 CUC for that drive, possibly cheaper, prices change daily! ;)

At just over 1000 km round trip as per #1, the fuel consumed alone would be not less than 100 litres. I don't know what the cost per litre is but even if it's only $1CUC/litre, the driver surely wouldn't charge less than double his fuel cost would he? Even if the op is only looking for a one way trip, the driver isn't likely to get a return fare to Vinales so the cost of the trip to Trinidad is probably going to be calculated as if a round trip.

Louise - Vinales direct to Trinidad is 37CUC per person using Conectando Bus.

Car/van would cost 80 -100CUC.

Last year we paid 80CUC for a very good vehicle for the 2 of us.

For the past 6 years of substantial travel all around Cuba we have found that the rule of thumb for legal private or government taxi fare approximates 3-4 times either Viazul or Conectando single fare.

Ignore speculative posts or those from persons with a vested interest in talking up such prices.

Also see Martian's reports re similar question on other thread.
