Visions of Varadero : Cuba

The last stop on my trip to Havana, just before wrapping up the two weeks roaming around this fascinating land, was in expat mecca Varadero beach east of Havana on the northern coastline. It’s essentially a very long beach stretch with fluffy white sand and translucent blue waters. I was based a bit outside the tourist area across the bridge in the Santa Marta, which has the cheaper local accomodation and food options, rather than resorts and upscale restaurants. A 10 min walk to the north across the bridge, and that’s where you’ll have all the tourist options and the lovely beach.

Overall, I did just did an overnight, to give me a glimpse into beach and party life in that area, and taste some of the local cuisine. Which was enough, given that my next stops were Costa Rica and Nicaragua, with their own beach paradise options.

 

Here are a few shots from my beach walk around the  Varadero beach…

Perhaps one of the best beach destinations in Cuba, even if a bit over commercialized. Definitely worth a stopover, if not longer.
