Varadero is one of the main Sun and Beach destinations in Cuba. We are talking about a peninsula located at the North coast of the country. Not only it has been branded as “the most beautiful beach” in the island, but it also offers 20 kilometers of white sand and warm water. Indeed, it is a good option to walk throughout the beach and admire its beauty.
The city is a rather small village, which gives you the chance to discover it on board of a double decker bus, or in a more stylish way getting a ride in a cabriolet. To be honest, Varadero is one of the safest places to visit in Cuba. Consequently, you can go around interacting with its local people.
Considering lodgment, there are quite a few possibilities. Varadero is home of over 50 all-inclusive hotels that provide clients with great comfort. There is a wide range of opportunities regarding prices or services. Concerning location, we should note that some resorts are built downtown, while others are quite apart. However, most of them are really close to the beach.
On the other hand, it is also possible to rent a room in a “casa particular” at a walkable distance from the sea shore. While the city has relatively few inhabitants, these “bed and breakfast” facilities have become a popular alternative. Additionally, you will be in touch with people and closer to most services.
