Taxis are readily available around Cienfuegos. Most rides will cost between CUC$1 and CUC$3. If you can't find one, call Cubataxi (tel. 43/51-8454). Tourists are technically not supposed to use the common horse-drawn taxis, as they are not licensed to carry foreigners, though some drivers will let you ride but will only accept CUC$1 or CUC$2. There are also plenty of bicycle-powered cabs around town; the same prohibitions will apply but they will risk taking you for a few CUC$s.

Car-rental agencies in Cienfuegos include Havanautos, Calle 37 at the corner of Avenida 18, Punta Gorda (tel. 43/55-1211), and Cubacar at the Hotel Jagua (tel. 43/55-2014) and at the Trade Center, Av 50 between Calles 35 and 37 (tel. 43/55-2166).
