In Santiago de Cuba, a city in the eastern part of the country, old American cars are not predominant in the taxi business like in Havana. Instead, people use motorcycles to get from place to place sitting behind the driver, who carries an extra helmet for clients.
Rides can cost between 10 and 20 pesos (50 cents to 1 dollar), depending on the distance, and sometimes on the time of day; night rides could be a little more expensive.
People are so used to getting around like this that some even claim that it is not possible to get to know the city in depth any other way.
