When the Varadero head this way today, you will find here more than half of all hotels in Cuba, the international airport, dolphinarium, 18 of holes golf course, lots of restaurants, shops and bars. In addition to all tourist amenities but there still remained a good old Cuban base: 20 km long sandy beach, which even today is one of the most beautiful in the world.

The greatest treasure of Varadero is still perfect nature and beautiful azure sea. Among coral reefs here, "anchored" wrecks of ships or aircraft in a gentle ride to the lagoon dolphins and schools of colourful fish and the surrounding forests still live crocodiles and snakes.
