What to see in Varadero

Although this may come as a surprise, Varadero is much more than a coastal town. In fact, it is a place in which art and culture acquire a growing role.

Walking the streets of this city founded in the 1880s as a settlement, you can enjoy magnificent museums, libraries, art galleries and movie theaters. We must also mention the Ediciones Vigía workshop, a curious publishing house that, in the 21st century and for more than three decades, continues to produce books in an artisan way, illustrating them and numbering them by hand. In addition, it also organizes interesting exhibitions related to the literary universe. Take advantage of your stay at your Varadero hotel to visit them!

Another place that deserves the traveler’s attention is the Fondo de Bienes Culturales, which permanently exhibits the work of prestigious regional artists, as well as other Cuban painters: for example, Flora Fong, Roberto Fabelo, Raúl Mendive or Zaida del Río, among others. Don’t let others explain it to you!

What to do in Varadero

Without underestimating its cultural offer, the flagship of the area are the magnificent beaches of Varadero, made of fine white sand and bathed by permanently warm waters. Moreover, as they are generally quite shallow, they are an ideal option for all those people who would like to travel to Cuba with children. However, whatever your choice, we assure you that its magnificent landscapes will leave you speechless. Relax in any of these magical corners and discover in situ why Varadero is popularly known as the blue beach of Cuba.

Do you need more reasons to be seduced by this strip of the Cuban coast? Here is an important one: in 2018, the Travelers' Choice awards chose it as the third best beach in the world. It is quite understandable, as it deploys more than 20 km of paradisiacal beaches, fully equipped with hammocks, umbrellas or palapas, so that the days in the sun become unbeatable.

Do you like water sports? In that case, this destination will not disappoint you. The local sports offer is very broad, with a multitude of disciplines adapted to your tastes and needs. One of the most popular activities is diving in Varadero. In fact, this town has 23 areas suitable for practicing this sport and to observe all kinds of fish and marine fauna.

However, the sports options do not end here, as it is also possible to go horse riding, enjoy cycling, surfing, water skiing, parachuting, tennis or golf in a 63-hectare golf course.

And if you have an adventurous spirit: why not travel around the Caribbean coast on a sailboat or catamaran? In Varadero, you will find a dock that is perfectly prepared for navigation.

In terms of leisure opportunities, Varadero has everything you need. The restaurants and bars of the area organize live music performances, and the nightclubs of Varadero are open daily. There, salsa beats, and the best Latin rhythms await, so you can dance until your body tells you to stop.
