Varadero Travel Guide: 451 reviews and 1,013 photos
The most famous site in Matanzas is Varadero, the Blue Beach of Cuba, about 2 hours by road from Havana, or a few minutes by air. Green, white and blue are the main components of its beautiful landscape. Internationally known for its transparent seas, where you can walk for meters and meters in soothing shallow waters, it features 23 world-renowned diving areas as well as numerous restaurants, cabarets and nightclubs, bars, facilities for water and land sports, golf courses, and hotels for every taste. Varadero also is the focal point for more than 10 virgin islets and marine floors offering over 40 types of coral, a wide variety of fish, lobsters, shrimp, crabs, sea-tortoises and more than 70 types of mollusks. *
During the 19th century, seamen used to do repairing and caulking on its shores, and thus the beach became known as varadero, from the English careen. These ocean navigators discovered in Varadero a remote, quiet place created by indescribably beautiful beaches.
It was only during the 1950s that new construction projects began to spread, featuring vacation homes built for their owners so that they might rest during extended holiday periods. *
Now Varadero is the undisputed tourist capital of Cuba and its most sought-after beach site, featuring almost 20 kilometers of surprising sands and a hotel industry in full development. *
