There are several types of taxis found in Cuba. Official taxis for
tourists include a meter. It is not uncommon to encounter tourist taxis
without meters. If no meters, get a quoted rate before taking a taxi to
your destination.
There is also a type of taxi used only by Cubans, and it comes at a
reduced rate, payable only in Cuban pesos. Yellow coco taxis are other
fun, short distance modes of transportation. Both can be found
throughout Havana and are cheaper than traditional taxis. Negotiate
the fare with your driver before accepting a ride.
