A particularly beautiful neighbourhood of Matanzas, Playa is developing by the minute. House construction, reconstruction, new businesses, new restaurants, lots of street activity, tons of wonderful casa particulars to chose from.
If you are a new visitor to Varadero and want to "venture" out a little, I would highly recommend a trip to Matanzas. You can take a taxi, or the Viazul bus (less than $10 each way - make a reservation at the terminal in Varadero). For 20-25 CUC per night, stay at a casa particular and get to know a little of real life Cuba and be hosted by gracious, friendly, helpful people. For a small fee, you can receive a lovely home cooked meal (much better than the resort fare).

- In a nutshell:My home away from home!
