Discover deserted island beaches

Found on the Punta Hicasos peninsular in the heart of the Caribbean Sea, Varadero is home to unspoilt scenery with caves and cays to explore, either by land or catamaran. If you can drag yourselves away from the beach for long enough then snorkelling and scuba diving are an absolute must. With twenty world class dive sites to discover and expert tuition, you’ll see an underwater world of fascinating formations, sponges and colourful fish. Above the surface enjoy water skiing, kayaking and sailing, try your luck at deep sea fishing, or relax as you cruise the waters discovering deserted island beaches.

Back on dry land there are various trips to some of the small traditional villages like Cardanos, Pinci del Rio, Matanzas and Trinidad with its fading colonial style villas set in the midst of a lush green hillside. Josone Park in the centre of Varadero opens up into an area of natural beauty with a lake, fabulous restaurants, swimming pool and sugar cane juice stand. A trip to a tobacco farm to see how the famous Cuban cigars start life or the Dolphin Aquarium will entertain the whole family during your holidays in Varadero.
