    Varadero Beach is one of the most beautiful beaches in Mexico. Its fine white sand and clear water attract countless tourists to enjoy the sun and waves.
    First of all, the natural beauty of the beach is breathtaking. Strolling on the stretch of white sandy beach, overlooking the blue sea and sky, and the refreshing sea breeze blowing by, you can feel the tranquility and beauty of nature.
    Secondly, the facilities around the beach are complete and provide tourists with various entertainment and leisure activities. Whether it's beach volleyball, surfing or diving, visitors can enjoy the fun of the beach. In addition, there are various restaurants, cafes and shopping malls near the beach, providing tourists with a wide variety of choices.
    Overall, Varadero Beach is a charming resort. It not only has beautiful natural landscapes and rich entertainment facilities, but also makes people feel the warm and hospitable cultural atmosphere of Mexico. Whether it's a couple's honeymoon or a family vacation, it's an ideal choice.

    The tour guide was lovely and the caves were interesting. He was very informative and took the time to explain various features about the cave.

    Trip to Cayo Blanco was great. Victor did good job. All Catamaran team was great. We was lucky as we had beautiful weather. Just must go. Left 4 stars as on our way to resort my wife left in bus bvlgari Sunglasses.. Jennifer from our resort called to him just maybe after 5 minutes when we left bus and driver said no sunglasses in bus.. Really sad as most of Cubans are really honest and always returning finding items.. But driver transtur company should be fired... So Cayo blanco trip OK.. Highly recomend but do not leave personal items in transtur buses as will be never returned.

    I think it was 5 dollars a person, and of course for the experience, if it was here in the US it would be 75 and people would pay it.

    The water temp was awesome!

    Good spot to pick up some rum that may not be available at home - better selection than at the resort store. They offer free samples so you can decide what you would like to buy. Canadian credit card was accepted without any issues. Staff were friendly and helpful and seemed to know their products well.

    Good snorkling trip! We thought our smartphone was lost but we found it later in the bag... They tried to find it and went to every place we've been to. Honest people, very good snorkling instructor.
    We recommend this activity! Thanks for having us :)

    It was interesting to walk through - Its a nice sized street market - some vendors post their prices - others do not - that may be good or bad depending on how much they like you. Like you'll read another review about them charging a lady 20 pounds for a baby shirt - they did not like her. Probably because she paid in pounds and you get the best deals in Pesos or USD - They will take other currencies but they will chisel you a little on the conversion

    The little drink bar in the center will definitely overcharge you if you arent in Pesos and even then its still high

    We walked to the Eco reserve in 15 minutes from our hotel the Royalton Hicacos. The entrance was $5 each. We were given a map of the "Muslims Trail" which had points of interest which were marked with a corresponding number, all in English. I found it informative and probably wouldn't have noticed things with out the numbers. We enjoyed seeing the bats in the caves. It was all very dry and brown when we were there in March, apparently there has been no rain since October. I would have liked to have seen the reserve in a greener month but enjoyed the trip. You need good soled shoes though.

    There is something for everyone. Several very good restaurants such as a Tapas Bar, Italian and Seafood and International restaurant. The International Restaurant was excellent and reasonably priced. Coffee Roasting Cafe, ice cream parlour, small grocery store, liquor store, bank and money exchange, clothing stores and even a Perfumeria.
    As it is right on the water there is a beautiful Marina with Private pleasure boats and catamarans for the all day trips.

    nice setting for a walk through a scenic park, rental boats available, a nice waterfront bar with the best pina coladas, although they are no longer served in a pineapple. Choice of 3 restaurants within the park. On a previous trip (2018) we chose the more traditional Cuban restaurant (La Campana) tucked away in the back, great food and excellent service. A nice setting for a relaxing meal off the beaten path.
