If you’re already a fan of TUI holidays to Cuba – including the likes of Havana (ooh na na) – then you’ll be pleased to hear that they’re expanding and bringing you another dreamy destination in this part of the world. Say hello to the stunning beach resort of Varadero!
If you’ve never ventured to Cuba before, then this is all the reason you need to jet off to the island. While Havana is known for its bustling city atmosphere featuring fascinating architecture and colourful Cadillacs, Varadero is the place to sit back with a Cuban rum (or two!) and soak up your surroundings of sky-high palm trees and a 13-mile white sand beach.
Getting there will be a breeze, as TUI are the only UK airline to offer direct flights to Varadero, with departures from Manchester weekly. You can already book for Summer 2020 now! This slice of sunshine is already incredibly popular with British holidaymakers, thanks to it’s stunning scenery and choice of luxury hotels.
And as it’s only a couple of hours drive from the bustling heart of Havana, you can always pop there for a day trip if you want to see what all the fuss is about.
If you really want to make the most out of your trip and experience both sides of Cuba, then TUI’s multi-centre offering will have you visiting both Havana and Varadero all in one getaway. The first half of your break can be spent in the culture-rich capital that blends in the old and the new, whilst the second half sees you slowing things down, basking on beaches and becoming acquainted with island life.
