Photo Feature by Reynaldo La O

HAVANA TIMES – A new train, with twelve modern cars, of Chinese origin, will cover the Havana-Guantanamo route, every three days, completing a journey of more than 800 kilometers (500 miles) in approximately 18 hours.

As in the rest of the provinces, Guantanamo residents also came out to welcome the new train, saying goodbye to the old one which sometimes took three days to make the trip due to obsolete technologies.

Traveling by train in Cuba is slower than by bus, however it is considerably less expensive.

  • Wowzie!! Bonitaaa!! I would just love to ride in one of those new cars!! Very affordable and comfortable at the same time!! Super smart idea and just fantastic!! Looking forward to the train tour!!

    • Before long it will be all tore up! Sad but true.

  • Never too late. But look on Chanese. They travel now with speed of more then 400km/h.(proposed distance in 2 hour) Conclusion: for Cuba this one a great achievement, but sorry to say that you live in past century.

  • All of Cuba Should Be Proud it,s been a long time coming & Much Needed.
