This blog is for all those travellers interested in visiting Cuba and particularly Varadero. This was the first tourist resort in Cuba and it still keeps intact some of the natural and historical values that have made tourists, journalists and historians call it "The most beautiful beach of the world" for over a century. Through all these years, celebrities like Christian Dior (who made the colour 'Varadero Blue' fashionable), the kings of Belgium and Spain, Federico Garcia Lorca, and many other well-known Cuban and foreign personalities have stayed there. Its proximity to Havana and its natural beauties attract thousands of tourists every year.

It is aimed at those who want to get something more than sand, sun and beach out of their holidays in Varadero. It makes suggestions of tours and attractions to see in these cities such as museums, restaurants, bars, hotels, local and national monuments, theme parks, recreational centres and natural attractions.
