Iberostar Varadero

The Iberostar Varadero might be right on the beach, but it’s also surrounded by the jungle, giving it a private and secluded feel.

This hotel pulls out all the stops. You’ll have three pools, five restaurants and a hefty list of activities for the whole family to enjoy, so you may never even want to leave the hotel.

By day, the kids have their own clubhouse and a children’s pool, but after the evening meal, the whole family can come together and enjoy the live music in the theatre bar. For adults, there’s a cigar lounge and a lobby bar.

Overview of Varadero

When you stay at the Iberostar Varadero, you’re a 20-minute taxi journey away from the popular Varadero. The beaches here are gorgeous, but that’s not the only draw. Away from the laidback beach vibes, you’ll find history, culture and plenty to explore.

The beaches back onto a town packed with culture. Take your walking shoes because its a town perfect for wandering at your own pace. There’s live music on the bill at any time of the day, as well as a host of traditional Cuban restaurants.

Things to do in Varadero

Varadero is the largest resort in the Caribbean, so if you’re looking for holidays to the Caribbean that have plenty for active families to do, this is the place to be.

So, when you stay at the Iberostar Varadero, you can grab yourself a bargain or two to remind you of your escape.

A holiday here really brings the whole family together. As traditional Cuban sounds waft through the air, and you enjoy the myriad of activities on offer, it will be impossible to tell whether the children or the adults have the largest smiles.

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.
