Varadero Holidays

Varadero
Overview

The most popular Cuban beach resort, Varadero is situated on the north coast of the island and comes complete with the gorgeous Varadero Beach, a 20km ribbon of soft white sand. The resort’s picture-perfect beach has warm waters that are ideal for swimming and snorkelling, with a dizzying array of watersports to enjoy, alongside sunloungers and umbrellas. Varadero holidays provide plenty of excitement with its stunning 18-hole golf course, spectacular salsa bars and vibrant clubs. The largest of the Caribbean islands, Cuba is the new tropical hotspot. Visit the capital of Havana and see its ornate colonial building, brightly coloured streets and iconic cars before returning to the idyllic beaches of Varadero. If you’re looking for somewhere to soak up some sun, rum and sights, holidays to Varadero are full of variety.

 

There’s lots to do in Varadero, such as visiting ecological reserve, near the Hicacos Peninsula and home to a giant 500-year-old cactus and nature trails that take you through caves where you can see prehistoric art. The ancient Bellamar Caves are also stunning, featuring stunning crystalline domes. Drop in at traditional restaurants to try out the local cuisine, such as tamale wraps and ropa vieja or shredded steak.

 

Varadero Airport is about 10 km from the city. You can also drive down two-and-a-half-hours from Havana Airport to Varadero, about 140 km away, taking you past the beachfront and crumbling mansions. Varadero, with its mild, tropical climate, sees a hot, dry season from November to April, with average temperatures from 24°C and a cooler 22°C in December and January.
