Things to do in Varadero
Even though the easiest selling point for Varadero is by far it’s amazing stretch of beaches, don’t be fooled into thinking that there isn’t a plethora of other attractions to visit during your stay in the Cuban resort. Nearby to Varadero Beach is Saturno Cave, one of the most interesting sites in the resort. This stunning cave is a must-see during your time here. After a slightly steep walk into it, you will see an amazingly pristine pool of freshwater inside the cave. Once in the water, slide on your goggles and make sure you get a good view of the amazing sights underwater as there is truly not much else like it.
When looking for something to do away from the beaches, why not try visiting Josone Park? Fondly known as the area’s ‘green lung’, this amazing park has a number of beautiful plants, flowers and trees to provide you with some well-needed shade to sit in as you admire the views. Grab one of the many bicycles on offer and ride around the lake. Or perhaps go one further and rent out a little boat and go out on the lake! Having a picnic here whilst watching the birds and natural scenery is an ideal way to spend an afternoon so make sure you pick up some sandwiches whilst visiting. Another popular attraction in Varadero is the House of Rum, where you can learn about the distillery’s rich history and of course sample some of its finest products.
Onto the main event! Varadero beach is known by many around the world as one of the best beaches on the planet, and with its endless white sands and crystal clear water you’d be daft not to agree. There are more than 45 hotels lining this amazing beach meaning that a walk to this wondrous patch of sand will never be a strenuous.
Varadero has many things to do while at the beach other than just your classic sunbathing and relaxation. There are 3 marinas where you can go fishing for billfish, as many locals do. There is a large area made for scuba diving where you can get all kinds of plans from 1 dive to 10 depending on your ability. You can even take a scuba diving course and get certified if you have enough time! You can swim with the dolphins and make some unforgettable memories. You can also visit the submarine park which has an incredible glass-bottomed boat so you can appreciate all the wonders underwater. And if water-sports are your bag then there a number of them to choose from jet-skiing and kayaking all the way to paragliding and kitesurfing, meaning you can always find something to do.
