It is a part of the Matanzas province in Cuba and is located at the northern shores of the island country. It is a long narrow peninsula stretching into the water body of the Gulf of Mexico. From high above, the resort town looks like a long hockey stick with an inverted heel and toe pointing south.Varadero, with its beach and other natural attractions draws over a million tourists every year. The biggest attraction of Varadero is its beach which, to many loyalists, is the ‘best beach in the world’. Swanky hotels attract visitors from Europe and Canada.
Just like in the early 1950s before the revolution, the locals are not allowed as patrons in the resorts, but are only allowed as workers. Natural attractions in the area have also made Varadero a center for cultural activities.Table of Contents:Introduction to VaraderoOverviewCultureLocation & OrientationClimate & When to VisitSightseeing HighlightsVaradero BeachMatanzas TownVaradero Golf ClubDay Trip to HavanaMunicipal de Varadero MuseumSaturno CavesGran Parque Natural MontemarTeatro Sauto (Sauto Theater)Jeep Safari – Yumuri Day TourCasa del Ron (House of Rum)Recommendations for the Budget TravelerPlaces to StayOcean Varadero El PatriarcaHotel Varadero InternacionalBreezes Bella CostaHotel BarloventoBlau Marina Varadero ResortPlaces to Eat & DrinkLa GrutaBarracudaKiki’s ClubEl MojitoWaco’s ClubPlaces to ShopConvention Center Plaza AmericaBazar CubaLa Casa Del HabanoCentro Comercial HicacosGaleria de Arte Varadero
