Holguin (city) to Varadero is 653 kilometers.

Your travel options are really flying, bus or rental car. Depends on why you're going, for how long, one-way or return.

I don't know if it's the resorts you need to get to in Holguin Province but they are actually in Guardalavaca which is some 50 kilometres distant from Holguin City.

Thank you for the response.

We are staying at the Playa Pesquero hotel in Holguin and would like to visit friends in Varadero.

Sorry, and meaning no disrepect, but that's a 700 kilometer trip, ONE WAY which is at best a FULL DAY of travel.

I'd actually suggest that you dig out an atlas and look at just how long a distance that is.

Now if you still want to do that, then you have to consider the cost. Best would be to drive one day, visit the next, and drive home the third day. So that's ballpark, $200 for the car, two nights hotel at $100/night, plus meals plus 3 days time. Does this still fit your plans?

Steve is right. The only viable way to do your trip is by renting a car for three days. You will be able to rent a car from the Via desk at the Playa Pesquero.

If you were thinking you could do a return trip in a day, forget it.

It is a lot of time and money for a very short visit.....

You have been of great help, we will take advantage of our stay in Holguin and forget about Varadero.

Thank you very much for the info
