Day trip to Havana
Havana is the capital of Cuba and one of the most culturally impressive cities in the world. It’s only just under two hours away from Varadero, so it is definitely worth arranging a day trip through your hotel rep in order to experience this authentic Cuban city for yourself.
Havana is famous for its 16th century architecture and for being one of the world’s biggest distributors of cigars and rum. Walking through the streets of the capital you’ll immediately notice the 1950s American cars lining the streets. These classic oldtimers of the 50s are used for everyday life in Havana, with many taxi companies and residents driving them about the city. A truly iconic sight throughout Havana and the rest of Cuba.
Havana is a city rich in culture and offers you the chance to explore its history through its many museums. The Museum of the Revolution and El Morro Fortress, which formerly guarded the gateway to Havana, are just two that have become tourist hotspots.
