I've just arrived home from my vacation in Varadero, Cuba early this morning, and had to add a review about this wonderful part of our trip. I've read quite a few of the reviews here about the Tropicana show, and I have to disagree with...More

The tropicana is over rated and over priced for what it is, but then everything for tourists in Cuba is over priced. By the time you change your money to US dollars, its better to stay close to where you are and see a show....More

A beautiful out door theater with talented dancers. Once again feeling ripped off my staff. The drinks with tickets were warm and came one minute before show. Cuba says it's not a tourist trap yet but that's just what It is. Wait staff was poor.

Other TA reviews say if you are in Havana, should go to Tropicana, a good experience, so we did it. Its $25 cucs taxi each way from old havana, about 25-30 minutes. It is outdoor in a jungle 3D settings. The dancers had beautiful costumes.

The ambiance was like no other. Outdoors with beautiful trees and lighting. The dancers were all very talented and their costumes (which they must have changed outfits about 10 times) was like nothing I’ve have ever seen. I’ve been to Vegas and this was just...More
