    Varadero Things to Do

    The most obvious thing to do in Varadero is to spend hours soaking up the sun on the sand in front of the turquoise sea. Certainly the widest and the longest beach I saw in Cuba, plenty of room for everyone except perhaps in front of the "all inclusive" hotels. Along the beach though there are plenty of sunshades and here and there are renters of...

  • 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...

  • Jeep Tours

    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

    There are around 32 diving sites-including one at the Piedras del Norte Cay Underwater Park-between the Bay of Matanzas and the western tip of the Jardines del Rey (Gardens of the King) Archipelago.

    4 out of 5 stars

    Varadero Things to Do

    This is a nice walk for anybody around the lake and mainly in the shade of the huge trees that are there. There's a few restaurants and bars if you need but mainly from 12h00 onwards. You can also take a pedalo out on the lake. Apparently there is a swimming pool right at the top of the park, but I didn't go and verify. In another corner there is a...

  • Cigars

    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.

  • 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...

  • Museum

    Varadero Things to Do

    In a lovely setting between the ocean and a garden full of palm trees the museum is a disappointement, at least it was for us. When we had paid our entry fee (1 CUC) a guide began showing some of the exhibits, photos etc of the Revolution when she was called to the telephone, not before telling us that we couldn't go upstairs as there was work...

  • 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.

  • Fruit stalls in the village of Crimea

    During a day trip from Varadero to Guama and the Bay of Pigs in November 2014, we stopped at a row of roadside fruit stalls, about 6km from the town of Jaguey Grande.The stalls were selling a variety of exotic fruits; limes, bananas, pineapples, papayas, guavas, watermelons, starfruit (carambola)...and several that I didn't recognise. One of these,...

  • 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...

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

  • CUEVAS DE BELLAMAR

    Bello lugar, en Matanzas, tu entras en una cueva, que por afuera, no parece gran cosa, pero este lugar esta debajo del mar, y adentro hay las cosas mas interesantes que hayas visto jamas, es como estar transportada a un lugar que no es de aaqui de la Tierra, con un pequeño arroyuelo lleno de agua, que le llaman la Fuente de la Juventud...........
