Varadero is the most famous area in Cuba for tourists and visitors who come in search of the best beaches on the island. It’s located on the Hicacos Peninsula in the province of Matanzas, about 130km east of Havana.
20km of fine white sandy beaches, exceptional lush vegetation, sunny climate, open landscape and crystal clear water are what make Varadero a major tourist destination.
Founded in 1887 by 10 families who built their holiday homes in the seaside resort, it wasn’t until the 1940s that it started to develop as a summer resort town.
Varadero offers perfect conditions for diving, fishing, yachting and all types of water sports.
In addition to its natural richness, Varadero also boasts other cultural and historic attractions close by in the cities of Matanzas and Cárdenas, Zapata Peninsula and the derelict Balneario de San Miguel de los Baños.
In addition to its great beaches, history and nature are definitely among the highlights of the many attractions Varadero has to offer.
The National Park, the Biosphere Reserve, and the Ramsar site, Ciénaga de Zapata, one of the largest wetlands in the insular Caribbean is a must-see for visitors with its vast, virgin landscape with its great diversity of plants and animals.
Josone Park (named after the lovebirds José and Onelia) in Varadero is a beautiful botanic garden full of rich and varied vegetation.
If your goal is to discover nature away from crowds of tourists then the uninhabited island of Cayo Blanco is the perfect spot. You can take a catamaran there and enjoy some snorkelling among the beautiful coral reef and dolphins.
The island is rich in important archaeological sites. San Ambrosio Cave and its paintings are a testament to the first settlers to arrive on these shores, the Musulmanes Caves, well-known for their important ceremonial relevance in the Siboney culture, and the Las Salinas salt mine, which was the basis of the regional economy during the colonial era are all worth a visit.
The Caves of Bellamar and Saturn (underground river) are also two interesting sites to visit.
And finally, Cárdenas municipality, just 10km from Varadero, with its classic architectural style is sure to surprise all who visit with its blend of sculpture works, museums, and the local traditions.
Varadero’s beaches are undoubtedly the most well known in Cuba. In fact, this area on the Hicacos Peninsula is the island’s number 1 sun and sand destination.
It offers 20km of top quality beaches that reach up to 1600m in width in the east and 200m in the west.
With a very good tourism infrastructure, visitors can enjoy a wider range of activities and attractions at the beach, and the BelleVue Puntarena**** hotel, with its BeachFun4Life concept, offers plenty of activities and water sports right at the hotel’s beach.
The climate, with sunshine during most of the year, is tropical and seasonally humid with semi-continental features.
The average temperature from October to April is about 20ºC and from June to September the average is 30ºC.
Given that Cuba sits across from the Gulf of Mexico, this makes it prone to seasonal cyclones and even hurricanes between June and November.
The local cuisine in Varadero is best known for using white rice with beans, roast pork, yucca, fried banana and grilled or fried chicken. One of the most typical dishes in the region is ajiaco criollo, a delicious stew made from a mix of vegetables and a variety of meat.
Other delicious dishes include picadillo (minced meat), which is prepared differently to many other places as it comes with pepper, red onion, garlic, tomato sauce, olives, raisins and served with black beans; congrí oriental, a typical dish cooked with fried rice, beans, onion and pieces of bacon; the famous moros & cristianos, a simple, yet flavoursome, dish prepared with just beans and rice.
For dessert, you have to try guenguel, a traditional dessert made from crushed corn, cinnamon and sugar; fried bananas or tostones, or the great tasting buñuelos (fritters), served with a sprinkling of sugar and cinnamon or honey.
Turning to Varadero’s famed drinks, we have to mention champola de guanábana, a traditional malted sweet milkshake with soursop (guanábana) ice cream, milk and sugar, la melaza, a mix of water and sugar extracted from sugar cane, and of course the delicious Cuban coffee.
And if you’re after something stronger, you should try the world famous daiquiri, unlike in other regions, in Varadero, it’s prepared with only white rum, lemon juice and a little sugar, or a tasty Cuba libre, made with rum and coke.
Varadero is full of bars, restaurants and clubs to enjoy a great night out. Music and live shows are on offer in many places, even right on the beach.
The Palacio de la Rumba, the Comparsita or the distinctive Cueva del Pirata are all recommended if you looking to dance non-stop all night long.
Varadero celebrates its most important parties in December (7th-24th) when shows, parades and performances from the comparsas fill the streets and beaches, providing lots of fun and entertainment for both locals and visitors alike.
Carnival is another of the most important cultural events on the calendar. The big event takes place in January, and then in August there is a second carnival for children in Matanzas just a few days before the main events for grown-ups.
Springtime is synonymous with gastronomy thanks to the Varadero Gourmet Festival. The event approaches Cuban cuisine from many different angles including, innovation, tradition, drinks and techniques, and also has an area for Havana cigars.
