Aquamarine waters, azure skies, soft sandy beaches, and swaying palm trees attract tourists from around the world to this magnificent destination. However, it is the warmth of the locals, and the authentic hospitality that keeps them coming back. Considered by many as home to the world’s most beautiful beach, Varadero is ideal for sun-worshipers, water babies and golfers. After the sun sets, Varadero heats up with a festival of cabarets, fabulous nightclubs and outdoor amphitheaters, featuring a variety of shows such as Cabaret Tropicana - a super show with more than 200 dancers donned in sequin; feather costumes, and chandelier headdresses, swaying to Latin jazz and Afro-Cuban salsa beats and merengues. Taste a slice of paradise by sampling some tamales, one of the few indigenous foods that have remained a part of the modern Cuban diet.Read more
