Very nice and clean city
Not as busy as Havana!!
In a nutshell
Great for taking some time out to meet some locals.
Every Saturday night, Camagueyans take to Maceo Street and party. There's salsa dancing and live music, and an added perk is that it's free! We checked it out earlier on in the night and had a good time watching the dancing and chatting with locals, but since it was starting to really rain we headed off a little earlier than we otherwise would have.
Things definitely picked up even more after we left, because when we got back to our casa, we could still hear the music and the people getting louder way into the morning.

"Viazul" is the tourist-oriented long distance bus service offering trips to and from many cities in Cuba. They're a pretty comfortable smooth ride, and we watched Bad Boys II in Spanish!! The buses we took also stopped now and then for food and bathroom breaks.
A trip from Havana to Camaguey is about 36.00 CUC and will take about 8 hours; Santiago de Cuba to Camaguey is about 20.00 CUC and will take 7 hours. You can check out the schedules and prices online on their website. The Viazul station in Camaguey is on the edge of town, and a taxi into the middle of the city will cost around 4.00 CUC.
