Cuban beach paradise

Situated in the northeast of Cuba, Varadero is famous for its palm-fringed white-sand beaches and turquoise waters. Varadero Beach –referred to as Playa Azul by the locals– is one of the nicest in the Caribbean, and so is the Playa Larga in the Bay of Pigs. The picturesque village of La Conchita is near Playa Camacho, which, in turn, is next to Playa del Muerto that has some appealing rocky sections for snorkeler and scuba divers to explore.

Those who want a change from all that beach life can either practice their back- and downswing on the eighteen-hole golf course of the Varadero Golf Club, spend some time in the local park Centro Comercial Hicacos or enjoy a stroll around the Varahicacos Ecological Reserve, with its giant cactus that is more than 500 years old.
