Varadero Beach is the second best beach in the world according to this year’s Tripadvisor survey of world travelers. It is the largest beach of 6 found in the Hicacos Peninsula in the province of Matanzas, Cuba. It stands out for its fine sands and turquoise blue waters.
The city of Varadero has spread around its beaches and the hotel zone has grown a lot in recent years with the rise of tourism in the region.
But what to do in Varadero? Besides the main attraction that are its beaches in Varadero there are many options for the enjoyment of the family.
One of the best attractions for family travel is the Varadero Dolphinarium. There you can enjoy a beautiful dolphin show, and for an extra cost your children can swim with the dolphins. They can enter with cameras to perpetuate the memory. On the outskirts there are shops where you can buy souvenirs and a small playground with mechanical devices so that your children can spend some time entertaining.
Another very visited place is Josone Park, a place for healthy recreation that has a small lake where you can take a boat ride, ideal gardens for a picnic as well as restaurants.
Other attractions in Varadero are the wonderful caves and caverns such as San Ambrosio, where you can enjoy a walk and learn about the rock formations and the history of the region.
I agree that Varadero is the second, but the first best beach in the world. We went as a family captivated by the comments of Tripadvisor, another place where we found enough information that motivated us I leave them in this link: Varadero.
We visited the dolphinarium, a fabulous show, my children loved it and I had no choice but to pay them the extra so they could swim with the dolphins, it was really worth it, it is a story that will remain in their memories forever.
