VARADERO HOW TO GET THERE
Varadero Cuba is in the province of Matanzas. Varadero is the most famous beach resort in Cuba, and one of the largest resorts in the Caribbean. Also known as ‘Blue Beach' because of its clear, calm waters, Varadero was founded back in the 19th century by a group of rich families from Matanzas city. But it became famous after the millionaire Irenée du Pont de Nemours built his estate on the so-called Península de Hicacos, although hotels only started to be built later in the 1950s. Since the early 1990s most of the peninsula has been developed for international tourism and the majority of the 50 or so hotels are co-owned by a foreign business. Varadero is fronted by a 20km (12-mile) fine white sandy beach, which is bathed by the warm waters of the Gulf Stream.
Who goes there?
During most of December through to February, Varadero is mostly visited by European and Canadian tourists who come to relax and enjoy the warm sun. Locals visit Varadero during summer time, from June through to August, which means the beaches can be crowded during those months.
