Experience Cuba’s Paradise in Varadero

Seductive beaches, Cuba’s only golf course and five star accommodations – Varadero has it all!

Thatched umbrellas on a beautiful summer day

Ready to relax and experience paradise in Cuba? Varadero’s warm Caribbean waters, gentle breezes, and soft sand allow you to let go of it all. With all-inclusive five star resorts such as Meliá Marina Varadero, Royalton Hibacos Resort and Spa, and luxurious boutique hotels like Mansion Xanadu, pack your bags, but leave your watch at home. It’s time to succumb to “Island Time” and just be.

Start your island vacation with a walk along the soft, white sands to find your ideal lounging spot beneath an umbrella or palm tree. Request a chilled coconut, a refreshing Cristal or a light Cuban beer and kick back. Without a doubt, the gentle waves will wash all your worries away and perhaps lullaby you into a siesta state.

Warm all year round, don’t miss a dip in Varadero’s tranquil waters. If you’re more adventurous, grab snorkel gear, paddle a kayak, or take the plunge with a SCUBA diving course. Cuba has some of the best diving in the world.


For golfers, you are in luck. Varadero Golf Club is the only eighteen-hole golf course on the island. Not even Havana has a full course; it only has nine holes. Enjoy an unforgettable round of golf worth writing home about – regardless of your score – because the backdrop is gorgeous. For animal lovers, there is a Delfinario (Dolphinarium) where you can watch one of two shows daily or get up-close-and-personal swimming with the dolphins.

For a touch of romance, visit the Mirador Bar (Lookout Bar) in the Mansion Xanadu, formerly the Dupont Mansion. Overlooking the Caribbean, watch the sun go down while indulging in a Cuban mojito or a blended daiquiri. With the freshest seafood and excellent service, prepare yourself for a delectable meal not to be forgotten. If you fancy wine, you can even select your favorite wine from their cellar. For a nightcap or a little dancing, Varadero has a bit of everything from live music venues like Café Benny Moré, caberet shows, and discotheques like Casa de la Música.
