Less than a 2 hour drive from Havana is the world-famous Varadero beach stretches along a narrow peninsula on the north coast of the island.
Varadero is really growing in popularity and the resorts food and service are all getting better and better. Wherever you stay, access to what is one of the top ten beaches in the world is guaranteed.
Cubans are known for their hospitality - so you always feel welcome!
If you are looking to relax in the sun Varadero is a great choice. And, I always recommend to anyone heading there on vacation, especially to Cuba to pack some things to leave with the locals.
The people in Cuba have very little so things like baseball caps, kids shoes, toys, basic medical supplies and toiletries go a long way.
