Here are the ground transportation options available at the HOLGUIN Frank Pais International Airport (HOG) in Cuba:
Chartered Shuttle bus:
Most tourists arriving in Holguin by air already have the transfers included in their flight-hotel package. If it's the case, then when you exit the terminal you are greeted by your Tour Operater representative who will show you on which shuttle bus (or minibus) to board for the transfer to your hotel.
Taxis are always available from the taxi ranks in front of the terminal building. A taxi ride from the airport to the resort area of Guardalavaca takes aproximately 45 minutes and costs 35-40 CUC one-way (equivalent to $35-40 USD). Always agree the fare first, some taxis have meters but they are rarely switched on.
