  Moped Taxi in Cuba
by PremaMarie

The taxis are the best bet in Cuba. However, they pick up you and everyone along the way. Great way to meet people. The fare is the same no matter how many people are in the Taxi. I recommend seeing the City with a Cuban friend as they will know the proper fares. Cubans are some of the most friendly people I have ever met. The bus system seems a bit run down. But you can basically stand on any corner and a car or bus or someone will pick you up and take you where you want to go (or at least part of the way there). There are also bicycle and motorcycle drawn carriages which are a fun way to see the City. Here is a pic of one of those. I think it is drawn by a moped of some sort.
