Getting from the airport to Husa hotel

Hello,

We have an airplane to Santa Clara booked and the hotel in Cayo Santa Maria (Hiusa). The company does not include transportation from one to the other. (well,,, they could,,, but they want to charge us 100$ each!)

How much can we expect to pay for a taxi between the airport and the resort? Are there other alternatives?

Thanks

I assume you have booked the hotel directly and have an air only ticket on the plane? All of the packages usually include transfers between the airport and the hotel. There may be a bus going there that will take you for a small fee if it isn't full. Worth checking. Otherwise, try bargaining with the taxi driver.

Thanks - did you have to bargain to get this price or is it pretty standard?

Thanks again eeefarm

We had to buy à la carte because my husband is going for 2 weeks and me only one...

It is very annoying that Sunwing does not include transport to hotel, when à la carte is already way more expensive. I will follow your advice and see if a bus would take us for a fee.

If there is a space on the bus, just talk to the driver (or the Rep ) and they might help you out. I took the bus (going to Santa Clara from CSM) few times .

Like Diva said, taxi $65/70 CUC , one way. It's a standard fee.

Thanks all - we will talk to the Rep and try to get a space on that bus when we are there… otherwise I am sure a taxi will be happy for the business :)

That is the best way to make someone happy on New Year's Eve! --- Great idea.

Tips are sometimes difficult to figure out.

Is 10 cuc tip acceptable in this case? 20?

(+ the cuc s/he charged)
