    Parque Josone, Varadero.

    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 large birdcage with parakeets, budgies and other assorted birds but a shame that there's no info panels.
    A favourite place also for couples to come and do their pre-wedding photos. A good couple of hours can be spent here looking at the birds and curly-tailed lizards that roam.

    Entrance is free.

    Views of the lake. Getting married tomorrow...... Parakeet

    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 good food. This is a great place to come for ropa vieja.

    Best Mojito Maker - Wilfredo

    At La Gruta del Vino you will find Mojito's to live for. Made with the freshest of ingredients (may be seasonal), Wilfredo makes the very best.

    Enjoy while you are waiting for a fresh lobster tail dinner prepared by Chef Alfredo. Add a great bottle of wine - Wilfredo can offer a beauty.

    Nice and quiet

    If you need some time where you can just sit on a bench or have a little walk this park is the place. It´s really a nice place. There´s also some things for the children to do.
