La Habana botero


A collective taxi in Havana. follows a fixed route and the fee is close to nothing. Problem is that the Cubans often have less than that in their pocket.  January 30 2008.

Cuba Hey.

Collective taxi “botero” coming down Calzada San Miguel de Padron in Havana.

Sightseeing Havana!

If you feel like a different sightseeing tour in Havana I would recommend you to put out your hand when a “Botero” passes by!

This is a collective taxi, almost always an old US made prerevolutionary wreck that runs along a fixed route.  The price is next to nothing but the experience can be worth a lot.

The Boteros are not supposed to pick up tourists but they do anyway!!
