Las Tunas Memorial a los Martires de Barbados

Memorial a los Martires de Barbados

Las Tunas’s most evocative sight is at the former home of Carlos Leyva González, an Olympic fencer killed in the nation’s worst terrorist atrocity: the bombing of Cubana de Aviación Flight 455 in 1976. At this heroes home you can learn about the victims of the tragic Cubana Flight 455, which was destroyed by a terrorist bomb in mid flight in 1976. This museum is situated in the former home of Olympic fencer Carlos Leyva Gonzalez, who was aboard the ill-fated flight along with the rest of the 24 member Cuban national fencing team. Individual photos of victims of the attack, which included the entire 24-member Cuban Olympic fencing team, line the museum walls, providing poignant reminders of the fated airplane. In total all 78 people on board the Douglas DC-8 aircraft were killed, 57 were Cuban nationals.

Buses are new air-conditioned models with onboard WC, central TV and lower suitcase compartment. Unless you intend to take the bus the moment you arrive, in most cases there is no need to book in advance as extra buses are added to routes when a particular route becomes overbooked.

The Viazul ticketing service is quick and efficient so usually you can collect a ticket in minutes. Departure times are clearly shown outside each booth.

There is another bus service called Astro bus which visits Las Tunas, however although cheaper because it’s charged in Cuban pesos (approx 24 pesos to 1$), the buses are less comfortable and are used by Cubans so they tend to be full on most journeys.

It’s worth noting that if the Viazul bus service does not take you to your exact location, there are a plethora of Cuban peso and normal CUC taxis waiting at the bus stations to take you to your final destination in Las Tunas. For example;
