One of the first sites we saw. A beautiful place to spend the afternoon strolling around the lake, paddling in the paddle boats and relaxing at the bar to have a drink and listen to a mariachi band!!

Josone Park was a part of Varadero classic car ride tour. We had a great time at the park, although we did not spend a lot of time there. Our guide drove the car inside the park and we stoped for a quick photoshooting. It was very romantic! We loved it!

We attended Bar Varadero 1920
We had a few drinks and there was some entertainment (singer)

Before we entered, I asked the method of payment. He said no credit card but pesis, Canadian or US dollars.

The bill came back at 1380 pesos which was a fair price but was asking $27 canadian.
So his exchange rate was 50 pesos for $1. Anywhere on the street they will exchange at 100 pesos for $1 Canadian.

So I left the bar and walked on the street and exchange at 100 /1$.

Beware of this , if you're short of pesos.

Josone Park is one of favourite places in Varadero and we were pleasantly surprised to see it was open as there were rumours it was closed during our trip. We were sad to note that many of the old tall palm trees have been cut down for what reason I can’t say and they make the entrance area off of Avenue 1 almost naked. However the views especially of the pond are worth the visit.

A great place to escape the heat is the small bar at the pond edge which claims to serve the best pina coladas in Varadero. Not sure if they’re the best but they’re the perfect thing to deal with the afternoon heat, especially as like so many other places in town post Covid there is no beer available.

I can attest that they can either be the most expensive pina coladas in town or the cheapest depending on how you pay. Our first visit here this trip we ordered two and after confirming we could pay in CUPs (Cuban Pesos) paid just under 400 CUPs, at official exchange this was about $11.00 Canadian, a fair price. At the rate I managed to get they cost us $5.00 Canadian which is a real deal.

We went back a couple of days later and ordered the same drinks from the same waiter. He even remembered us. I’d accidentally left most of my Pesos in the room but had some Canadian Dollars on me, which he was more than willing to take them, more willing I noted than the Pesos earlier I noticed. Price this time for the same two drinks $16.00 Canadian.

Sadly after that we found other nearby places to enjoy our pina coladas and I never forgot my stash of CUPs again.

I went to this park on a Monday and a Wednesday. We saw online open 24 hours but when we went to find an entrance we opened a door and the workers came over and said closed. Well we couldn’t under them except they said No. There was other people trying to get in. There should be signs to let people know.
