Havana is heady and intoxicating with lively music, colonial history and rich culture to be fiercely proud of.
New York is one of the most important cities in the world from an economic and financial viewpoint. It is served by three airports. John F. Kennedy International Airport (JFK) handles over 56 million passengers and features four runways, six terminals and 125 aircraft gates. It is also a vital cargo centre. Parking spaces for more than 15,000 vehicles are available. The second airport serving the NYC area is La Guardia and it is capable of processing 28.4 million passengers through its four terminals. It offers over 150 shopping and dining facilities. Newark Liberty International Airport is the 3rd airport serving NYC and it has three each of runways and terminals.
JFK is served by a variety of transport options. From downtown, you can take the MTA bus, subway or the commuter rail to the airport. AirTrain JFK will transfer you between terminals at the airport. Taxi, car and van services are also available from the city to JFK. La Guardia, on the other hand, is reached by taking the MTA bus (Q47, Q48, Q72 or Q70 SBS). Taxis and shared ride services are other alternatives to get to La Guardia. To reach Newark Liberty, a practical way is to take the Amtrak train or NJ Transit Bus, in addition to taxis and rental cars.
A visit to Havana will probably change you forever. The city is beautiful despite decades of inattention because it is partly this desertion that makes it charming. Explore the city's delightful art culture at the Museo Nacional de Bellas Artes, relax at hipster cafes or join crowds at bohemian bars. Head over to the Malecon, the 7km long thoroughfare by the sea and enjoy its soulful character where all sorts of people meet, from artists to lovers. For action seekers, Havana will oblige with its lively bars and clubs as well as dancefloors pounded by the catchy salsa beat. Havana has an old world charm that must be enjoyed at a slow pace.
Jose Marti International Airport is where visitors on flights from New York to Havana will arrive; it is Cuba's biggest airport. Most travelers will be met by tour operators who have arranged their stays including hotels and transfers. Otherwise, there is a taxi rank outside of the terminal building. Before leaving the airport premises, make sure that you agree on a price to avoid unpleasant surprises. Buses don't serve the international arrivals terminal, but you will find the VIAZUL bus station in the Vedado district. Tickets are sold at the airport, but must take a taxi to get to the station. Another way to reach the centre include a car rental or private shuttle.
