A resort town of many natural sights, Varadero is a far cry from the hustle and bustle of the more populous cities, favouring swaying palms, pristine sands and ebbing waves over historical structures and towering buildings.
Unlike many resort towns however, Varadero refuses to rely solely on its magnificent beach to carry its reputation and benefits from playing host to a variety of highlights peppered throughout the region that range from scenic parks, hidden caves, a dolphinarium and even its very own Rum House dedicated to the Cuban beverage of choice.
When all is said and done, Varadero is geared towards relaxation, and it accomplishes this in spades, and even when taking the time out to commit to visiting the local landmarks there’s a sense of ease in their nature, so whether you’re finding an intimate vantage point in the park, easing back into the waters of the caves or enjoying the fine art of rum, be sure not to underestimate the rejuvenating power of Varadero.
It’s no great secret that if you’re going to Cuba and it’s the soft sands of the beach you yearn for then Varadero is the place to be, with the Hicacos Peninsula home to Cuba’s one and only Varadero Beach. One of the most popular coasts around, Varadero Beach exudes a soothing ambiance like no other, and while other beaches try, they just can’t seem to compare to the sheer beauty that comes with the combination of white sands and aquamarine hues that make this such a stunning setting.
After feeling the sand between your toes why not embrace the feeling of landscaped grass underfoot with a visit to Josone Park, a place where the local wildlife shares the paths with you freely while you take in the views. Featuring a paddle boat rental and a number of eateries, this park is a great retreat both day and night.
Not all of Cuba’s wonders are found on the surface, some of its treasures are buried deep beneath the earth as Varadero can prove, and if nothing else, discovering these marvels are a great excuse to escape the sun for a few hours.
Saturno Cave is a stunning underground cavern whose yawning entrance leads down to a crystal clear pool surrounded by protruding stalactites and stalagmites where visitors can swim, snorkel and dive. A snack bar has conveniently been built into the steps leading down to the cave for your convenience, making this a great option for a day out.
Making up part of Varadero’s Ecological Reserve, Ambrosio Cave is a limestone grotto whose interiors feature pre-Columbian pictographs and amazing rock formations all well lit by small holes in the cave roof, and although the cave is inhabited by bats, we recommend you don’t let that put you off.

As a resort town renowned for its beach, Varadero is undoubtedly going to receive its fare share of Caribbean sunshine, therefore we recommend you pack your best beach wear and plenty of light clothing to accompany those warmer days, bring some evening wear in case you want to explore come sundown and one or two waterproof items may be necessary as Cuba does experience the occasional downpour of rain.
It’s recommended that any medicines you may need during your stay be brought with you as Cuba doesn’t have many large pharmacies. We also suggest you pack plenty of sunscreen if you plan on sunbathing or exploring along with some mosquito repellent.
A camera or phone with a camera utility goes without saying but is always recommended.

Located within the Caribbean which is known for its hot climate, humid temperatures and occasional downpour of rainfall, Varadero’s weather definitely falls under the tropical category.
The weather is split into two defining seasons; the dry season which is less susceptible to stormy weather lasts from November until April and a wet season that draws on from May all the way to October.
Varadero is best visited during the dry season when the hot climate best suits the resort setting, and though there will still be the occasional bout of rainfall it is much less frequent that the wet seasons unpredictable monsoons.
The duration of your stay is more than 60 days, but don't worry that's fine. We just want to make sure you get the best possible price.
