Lots of touristy items to choose from, good prices and plenty of selection, after an hour of viewing them you've probably seen everything there is to offer though, there are a lot... read more

Get there early. Hot, hot, hot. Yup cold beer available 2 CUC's each, and very worth the cost. Tents can get full quickly. Bus for 5 CUC's each- all day, every 30" or a bumble bee pending your location on the strip, it's claimed a flat rate, this is negotiable and a fair option. Loads of local goodies. Open 10:00...

There are several markets along the Hoho bus route in Varadero. The largest one, further towards the end of the street has lots of stands selling leathers, clothing, small handcrafts, jewellery and art work. There is plenty of choice, but can be repetitious after visiting dozens of stalls. The other smaller markets sell similar goods. It's a nice way to... More

Many deals to be had here and don't be afraid to haggle with the merchants. Experience taught us that they expect to play the "name your price" game.

Very touristy, nothing unique. A perfect place to get a t-shirt, flag,cuban hat or cheap jewery. The art at the Havana market was better. Still worth going. I was on the hunt for the holy grail of t-shirts, one with Camilo Cienfuegos on it. Could only be found in Havana.

We bought plenty of souvenirs at the markets. A lot of handmade items and great variety. From t-shirts, wood carvings, rings, jewelry crafts and sandles. We went to the main market, other smaller markets had the same items. Prices can vary, one shop wanted 25 for our rum hugger and we got it for 12. So it pays to barter... More

Wonderful vendors and a beautiful place to buy homemade products that you can't get in stores. I never went to mall, this was so much nicer and possibly cheaper... I recommend this, you can grab a Hop on Hop off bus for $5 and ride it the whole day.

Taking the bus to downtown Varadero was easy although at times the buses were over loaded. Prices are basically the same all over so if you see something you like buy it.
