I had an amazing time in Varadero Cuba. The weather is perfect. The beach is the most beautiful I’ve seen. I went snorkeling as well. Fantastic!. The town has restaurants with great food

Beautiful beaches, life guarded, great fish dinners, lots of fresh fruit, If you are not a swimmer and don't enjoy sunning, you will not like Cuba. My husband and I loved it. We met some interesting people while visiting there.


You will see more of Germany than Cuba here: Varadero is Cuba's package holiday hotel hub. Everyone except for the staff at these hotels are foreigners. The beaches, however, are exquisite. I did enjoy them. There are some "casa particulares" (private houses) that foreigners are allowed to stay at these days which is a cheaper and more interesting way to experience Cuba if you wish to stay in this lovely coastal resort town.
