With tempting turquoise seas and some of the finest white-sand beaches in Cuba and the entire Caribbean, Varadero is bound to please.
Varadero, which is just two hours from sultry Havana, draws thousands of happy holidaymakers year after year.
The stunning beach is the resort's top asset; whether you want to increase your heart rate with water sports or simply lie back in the soft sand. For the adventurous, nearly all activities in Varadero revolve around the exquisite beach where you can have a go at just about any sport that involves water. And for those looking to escape the stresses and strains of everyday life, the incredible views and warm sea will help to wash away their cares.
Beyond the sands, however, the town works hard to live up to the valuable reputation of its main attraction, with a fine gathering of upmarket places to stay and eat. And if you don't fancy getting wet, there's always the option to tour a little bit of the region, and car hire is relatively inexpensive from Varadero Airport (VRA), which is only a 30km drive, or Havana Airport (HAV), which is approximately 150km (two hours) away.

*ATOL (Air Travel Organiser's Licence) is a financial protection scheme for package holidays: It provides support to consumers in the event their holiday provider collapses. Booking with an ATOL holder ensures that you won't be left out of pocket and you won't be left stranded abroad. All package holidays compared using TravelSupermarket are protected by ATOL.
ABTA (Association of British Travel Agents) offers similar cover for packages booked with its members. However, while ATOL predominantly covers flight-based packages, ABTA covers non-flight based holidays (such as rail and cruise) and linked travel arrangements. If you are unsure whether or not your trip is covered by ABTA, check with your provider.
