It is 140 km to the east of Havana, located on the Hicacos peninsula, a strip of land surrounded by the sea, 22 km long and on average 700 m wide.

Also known as Playa Azul, because the waters reflect all shades of blue, the sea, with up to 40% transparency between 25 and 30 m in depth, it offers 32 dive sites. At its most eastern point is the Varahicacos Ecological Reserve, an area of great archaeological value and with a wide variety of flora and fauna.


It is the most famous and most important resort in Cuba and the main tourist sun and sand destination. Its more than 20 kilometres welcome thousands of visitors who opt for a healthy type of tourism. The beautiful scenery, warm climate, crystal clear water, and fine white sand, make Varadero an unforgettable experience for anyone who enjoys its excellent benefits.

Varadero belongs to the province of Matanzas, also known as the Athens of Cuba. It was the first modern Cuban city and has a privileged location in the north of the island located between the mouths of the Yumurí, San Juan and Canímar rivers. Here, in different degrees of development, are the country’s four major tourist areas:

  • The beach of Varadero and other attractions belonging to the city of Varadero and areas close by.
  • The Peninsula of Zapata, ideal for nature tourism.
  • The city of Matanzas with its architectural monuments and religious and cultural traditions, as well as other cities of lesser importance but with certain attractions such as Cárdenas and Limonar.
