Real Life in: Cuba – Part 2 (Varadero)

Real Life in: Cuba – Part 2 (Varadero)

I bet you guys thought I forgot about the rest of the Cuba series! (If you have no idea what I’m talking about, check out the first part of the Real Life in Cuba series here).

Our stay in Cuba wouldn’t be complete without a trip to Varadero, so we bundled ourselves into a taxi and set off on the two-hour journey for a day at the beach.

We made a pit stop about an hour into the journey to stretch our legs and take in the sights – and what a gorgeous sight it was. Lush is the word that keeps coming to mind when I think of Cuba – the greenery was so…well…green!

We got to Varadero and tbh were a bit at a loss because we expected to just rock up at the beach, but actually you (ideally) need to get a day pass to one of the hotels and that gives you access to their amenities, food and private stretch of beach. There are other options but this was the best one for us.

We strolled around the (massive) resort, had some lunch and made our way to the beach.

I don’t know if you’re the same, but I absolutely love being near the water – not necessarily in it, mind you – just near it! This beach was so stunning and serene…

…Well, not for long by the time we arrived – I mean did you even go to the beach if you didn’t leave with a picture of yourself jumping?!

That’s all for now, but there’s one more part to come – featuring more of our adventures in Havana. There may even be a cheeky salsa video…
