The colour and temperature of the water are two of the main draws of a trip to Varadero. Located on Cuba's Hicacos peninsula, 141 kilometres east of the capital of Havana, Varadero is separated from the mainland by an artificial navigation canal. It links the Florida Straits of the United States to the Bay of Caibarien, located in Cuba's western province of Matanzas.
During your all-inclusive stay in Varadero, discover the fabulous twenty-two kilometres of beach where the resorts are built. You will find a wide strip of fine white sand and a platform whose curve descends gently towards the Caribbean Sea. There, the warm, clear water shimmers under the bright rays of the sun just to delight you.
This all-inclusive trip to the south also provides an opportunity to participate in the local life of the city of Varadero, that developed as a vacation site in the 1940s. A small village with an international reputation, Varadero has greatly evolved, especially since the early 2000s. The greater interest in the region by tourists has led to a substantial increase in the number of hotels.
Consequently, Varadero offers many all-inclusive opportunities, such as the Blau Varadero Hotel, the Rio Varadero Hotel, the Allegro Varadero Hotel, the Kawama Caradero Hotel, or the Hotel Internacional. From these comfortable accommodations that include all the amenities, you can take the time to discover the landscapes and panoramas.
You will want to plan around the presence of many wonderful beaches. Relaxation is accompanied by water sports, sailing, and of course scuba diving. The North Atlantic seabed is renowned for its beauty and natural wealth. Some of the many other features that attract the attention of foreign visitors are the caves, cliffs, fauna, and flora. A sea trip towards a string of easily-accessible pristine islands is a perfect chance to imagine the life of Robinson Crusoe! Take the opportunity to breathe deeply the ocean air and, above all, leave back home the stresses of work and city living.
Because of its geographical configuration, Varadero has become a mecca for sea fishing and yachting, as well as the cast-off location for a sea safari. The city is the perfect destination for a golf vacation. The clubhouse of the local golf course was once the family home of the Dupont family. There is also an international skydiving centre. There are just a few ideas for active, interested people!
All-inclusive vacations in Varadero also include visits to the surrounding areas. You can put two cities on the top of your list: Matanzas and Cardenas. The first recalls the history of the island as the first theatre of war of the Spanish-American War of 1898. A museum of the history of the region explores that event. The second city is nicknamed after the crabs that are found in abundance in the Bay of Cardenas. Twenty kilometres from Varadero, you will want to visit to taste the best of the area's seafood.
