    By air as it is the quickest. We flew by helicopter from outside our hotel in Guardalavaca. The journey took 45 minutes as opposed to a bus journey lasting about 4 hours. For more information please see my Santiago De Cuba travelogue.

    You can arrive to Santiago from Havana by plane... The fare is $100 one way, with both Cubana de Aviación or AeroCaribbean, and the flight takes 1 hour and 50 minutes. Another way from Havana is taking a Viazul bus... they are very comfortable, but the trip will last something like 16 hours ! Anyway there are night trips, so it will be not so bad. The price of the bus is $51 one way.
    Timetables are quite variable, so... please ask to the various companies.
    Someone told me: 'Train??? Forget it !!'
    Getting around, the cheapest way is by 'carro particular' (private 'old' car)... otherwise also taxis can be not so expensive if taken in few people.
