Get in

Viazul provides several buses a day from Camagüey, Havana, Santa Clara and Santiago de Cuba. There is also service to Trinidad and Varadero.

There is an overnight train to/from Havana on alternate days, and there may be a (very) early morning train to Santa Clara and Cienfuegos that returns in the afternoon. Sancti Spiritus is not on the main line. Check that the trains are running in advance.

Get around

There are very few taxis in Sancti Spiritus, but horse carts and bicycle-taxis are all over. Horse carts wait outside the bus terminal and leave when full to the Parque Serafin Sanchez in the historical centre of the city.
