The majority of Varadero’s hotels are all-inclusive so they offer a variety of day and evening entertainment and include all meals and drinks – though you’d be missing out on the real Cuban experience if you spent all your time in the hotel.
At the end of the peninsula is a nature reserve named Punta Hicacos with secluded beaches, scuba diving sites and caves, including one with pre-Columbian cave paintings. The most famous building in the area is the Villa Xanadu that once belonged to the wealthy American Dupont family. Villa Xanadu is now famous as a French restaurant with beautiful views of the surrounding area, and well worth visiting on a Varadero holiday.
