Varadero is considered the most important sun and beach destination in Cuba. Its main natural heritage can be appreciated in the paradisiacal coastline of more than twenty kilometers along its coast, where a strip of fine white sand combines in a fascinating way with the spectacular turquoise waters of the Caribbean.

Its warm climate, the transparency of its waters and its tropical landscape make Varadero a Caribbean destination like no other.

Varadero is located on the Hicacos Peninsula, part of the province of Matanzas, just 130 km east of the city of Havana. This Cuban town was founded in 1887, as a village in which a group of ten families decided to settle, where currently is located Playa Azul, on the north coast of Matanzas.

Varadero's tourist development began in the early 1990s, when a group of hotels was built to welcome international tourism.

Currently, Varadero has a hotel infrastructure that has 20,000 rooms and has the largest number of all-inclusive resorts in the country, including important hotel chains such as Sol Meliá, Barceló, H10, Husa, Iberostar, Gran Caribe, Gaviota and Grupo Cubanacán.
