Varadero Beach, Cuba

Varadero beach has long been the pride of Cuba, with its wide expanse of white powder sand and beautiful blue water. Probably the most built up of the tourist zones in Cuba, Varadero offers a broad range of hotels and resorts with many different amenities and price points.

Varadero is part of a peninsula that stretches far out into the calm waters of the Atlantic. Its 21-kilometre stretch of beach is an ideal vacation spot for sun-lovers, water babies and golfers. Its location on a narrow peninsula ensures that’s always breezy. The little town of Varadero is a small strip of shops and restaurants, a market for handicrafts, as well as Plaza America – a few shops plus a supermarket where you can pick up milk, juice, and a small selection of baby supplies. Don’t miss Josone Park  with a couple of decent restaurants amidst the lovely little park in the centre of town. Apparently the pina coladas are amazing.

Currently, Have Baby Will Travel has 11 Trip Reports for Varadero, Cuba. We’ve also included Jibacoa, Cuba with the Varadero reviews, as it’s part of the Matanzas province and usually included as part of Varadero when booking packages. The hotels are listed alphabetically, and the most recent reports for each resort will appear first.  Each trip report has been provided to Have Baby Will Travel with the hope of giving other parents a clearer picture of what to expect when traveling to Cuba with a baby or toddler.

We also have a detailed Cuba destination page, and many find our Fast Facts For Families page on Cuba most helpful.
