If you stay a couple of days in one of the resorts in Varadero, maybe you would like to do more things and visit more places than only in Varadero (described here). In this case you can rent a car and drive to Havana, Trinidad, Santiago de Cuba or other well known spots in Cuba. But in case you would like to something in the vicinity of Varadero, I can recommend you to visit the town called Matanzas and the pharmaceutical museum, called “Museo Farmacéutico de Matanzas”. If you ask me, this museum is an absolute highlight and if you like historical things, this will be the right place for you.
When you travel to Cuba and decide to book a suite in one of the resorts, you maybe choose Varadero. Varadero is a resort town and it is located in the northern area of the Cuban Island on the Hicacos Peninsula (see the marking on the map below). If you want to go to Varadero, you need to book your trip at one of the travelling agencies. When you arrive in Cuba, you will be brought there by a resort bus waiting for you either at the airport in Havana or directly at the airport of Varadero (depending on the airport you choose). In this article I will share my experience with you and tell about some things you can do in Varadero.
