    4.5 out of 5 stars

    Varadero Things to Do

    This wasn't my first trip down south, but never before had I spent so much time at the beach! The beach in Varadero is absolutely beautiful, and so is the water. It also helps that from 10:00 am to 4:00 pm, our resort's animation staff was there to keep us entertained with dance lessons, aqua gym sessions and funny games, which made the time fly...

  • Catamaran

    Varadero Things to Do

    The catamaran tour can be booked from any hotel, just ask at the front desk. When we took the tour in Nov/10 the price was 60 CUC. It is well worth the money. Although the day we went was also the day that Hurricane Tomas hit land at Haiti, so our catamaran tour was a little exciting! I didn't get any photos on the catamaran, it was pouring rain...

    Varadero Things to Do

    Next stop on our tour was a river cruise on the Miramar River. While at this stop we also got to watch a traditional Cuban dance and do some more souvenir shopping. Lobster dinner was offered on the boat for 10CUC and it was very good - lobster tail, potatoes and salad. Drinks were served on the boat as well, for a fee. We left the Miramar River...

    Varadero Things to Do

    as in everthing you must know your stuff before buying,,whether a cigar or a purse. The writer pays 60 cents to a dollar for the best sticks in cuba.. best for the novice to stay away from montes #4 or cohibas unless from a shop as these are the ones faked the most.

  • Parque Retiro Josone

    4 out of 5 stars

    Varadero Things to Do

    Josone Park is a wonderful place to spend an afternoon. Stop by the outdoor patio bar and sample the best Pina Colada you have ever tasted! 3CUC is all it costs for this nectar of the gods. You can admire the views at the same time. Service in this patio bar is always fabulous. There are also several restaurants in the park, all of them serve very...

  • Horse Back Riding

    Varadero Things to Do

    To find stirrups that even came close to my feet it was suggested that I try a different horse! Sorry, no adjustments here. Comfort? I think not. I wish I could have found a way to enjoy it but I can truly say it was one of the worst experiences ever. Extremely good for a laugh when thinking back. However, the pleasure of sitting on a horse that...

  • Delfinario

    Varadero Things to Do

    The show and "swim with the dolphins" activity in the Delfinario in Varadero was great. It was especially good for kids. Just make sure you get the right video before you leave. We got the wrong one.

  • Museum

    Varadero Things to Do

    Its building, the beautiful blue-white chalet with earthenware tiles, is an excellent example of how popular the American style was in the beginning of the 20th century. On Saturdays it celebrates traditional Cuban music by presenting the Rincón Lírico band, and every third Saturday, hosts activities for children.

  • Taino Village

    The Taino Village is a life-sized sculpture garden depicting the everyday activities of Taino Indians in Villa Guama, which is located on small islands on Treasure Lake. It can only be reached by boat from Boca de Guama. It's an interesting concept, but the realisation is a bit tacky.

  • Crocodile

    Boca de Guama is a wetland area in the Zapata Peninsula where tourists can see crocodiles in a farm. It looks like most crocodile farms in the world and it's not difficult to feel sorry for the animals, but actually the farm's activities consist of a breeding program of the captive population and the management and protection of the wild population...

  • Cow

    A man riding a cow (and not a horse) was an unusual sight for me, but the animal was obviously used to it.
