    Water Sports

    3.5 out of 5 starsHelpfulness

    The waters off the Varadero beaches are generally so calm and clear that it is an ideal place for most water sports that you might desire with the exception, perhaps, of surfing. That saying, there are times when the seas get very rough (during storms) so brave surfers might venture out then.

    Most of the hotels are all inclusive and offer non-motorised water sports as part of the package. Some of them even include beginners diving classes free for introductory lessons.

    In our hotel I noted that canoeing, kayaking, pedaloes, catamarans etc were all provided free of charge. There never seemed to be a shortage of equipment, or of hunky males to show you how it's done.

    There are coral reefs of Varadero that are said to be a snorkelers paradise.

    Be wary of winds that spring up suddenly and turn a calm sea to turmoil.

    Equipment: For most sports the equipment is already there on the beach of your hotel, waiting for you to use it.

  • Sky dive

    by Scotty2dope Written Sep 26, 2006

    I would highly recommend the skydive during your visit in Varadero. The price is 150 CUC and it is worth every penny. The jumpers are all very nice guys and highly experienced, they certainly put my mind at ease before the jump.

    The plane that you jump out of is a beaten up plane that the Soviets gave to Cuba as a gift after WWII - not exactly safe but don't let that put you off!

    The view when you are up in the air is second to none, Varadero looks so small when you are 10'000 feet in the air. The staff ask where you want to land just say your hotel and they land you on your hotels spot on the beach, fantastic! I would totally do it again!
