What to do in Varadero
Fun and sun are the order of the day here, with numerous water sports available on the beach and other activities such as swimming with dolphins and jungle tours by boat also available. Varadero also makes a great base for exploring the local area, and with Havana around two hours away and nearby Matanzas just down the road, there's plenty to do besides the glorious beaches!
Where to stay in Varadero
Most hotels in Varadero and Jibacoa operate on an All Inclusive basis, with most meals, drinks, snacks and activities included. Exact details vary from hotel to hotel, so check with us first. Hotel options in Jibacoa are more limited.
Holiday ideas to Varadero
Spend a week or two of pure relaxation in one of Varadero's or Jibacoa's great hotels, or combine either resort with other areas of Cuba. A few nights in Havana before your beach stay is straightforward and costs are similar - or less - to just a beach holiday. Alternatively, Varadero can be combined with one of our tours of Cuba, or with various Multi Centre or Self Drive itineraries in Western Cuba.
Cuba’s main resort, fun-filled Varadero occupies a narrow peninsula of white sand jutting out in to the warm waters of the ocean. The main town area offers numerous bars, shops and restaurants while hotels are dotted along the length of the glorious peninsula. Nearby Jibacoa is a much smaller resort, located half way to Havana, and perfect for a hotel-based holiday.
