Iberostar Bella Vista

Colourful, contemporary and right on the beach, with inviting lagoon pools, the Iberostar Bella Vista is appropriately named and delightfully chic. The panoramic bar is a big highlight and makes for an idyllic spot to take in a sunset, cocktail in hand. The hotel is right on a stretch of soft white-sand beach, with tropical greenery making up the backdrop, and it’s also in a prime spot for exploring the local bars, shops and eateries. There are areas for families and some just for adults, with plenty of sports and activities for everyone – and a massive seven restaurants to choose from.

Overview of Varadero

It was good enough for Al Capone to get his groove on, so you know there’s something about this place. The gangsters might not be around these days, but the nightlife energy remains, and the live music scene is fantastic. Head to the beaches by day for stretches of perfect white sand which make this area the top pick for holidays to Cuba. The resorts are another big pull, and there are many fine choices to base yourself, including the Iberostar Bella Vista, which has a perfect beachfront location.

Things to do in Varadero

The beach is right there, with all sorts of water sports available. If you want to explore further, the local action in Varadero is only a 10-minute drive away – why not travel there in style in an old-school Cadillac from the Iberostar Bella Vista? There are several top diving spots in the area, too, with a world of marine life to explore. Music is a big deal here, as well, and every June the Varadero World Music Festival offers five days of jazz, pop, rumba, salsa and rock concerts, happening all around town. If you want to experience the unique energy of coastal Cuban life, Varadero is a great place to do it. The beach life is intoxicating, the views are majestic, and come nightfall, this town comes alive with music and dancing. Drink it in, it’s a world away from everyday life.


Resort Summary

Stashed up on a skinny peninsula jutting out along Cuba’s northern coast, Varadero is the total package when it comes to holidays in this neck of the woods. Not only are its shores coated in a dusting of white sand, but they back onto a delightfully vibrant town, complete with beach restaurants, outdoor activities and more snorkelling opportunities than you can shake a flipper at.

Varadero is a place for wandering. There are hidden caves, coral reefs and acres of forest that beg for hikes. Wining and dining are no trouble here, as the town is packed to the gills with Cuban restaurants and dance clubs that always have live music on the bill. And when it’s time for a change of scenery, Cuba‘s capital city isn’t far off.
