Havana Region

While technically a town, Varadero is mainly made up of hotels and dive shops which are stretched out along the Peninsular de Hicacos with enough room for everyone to claim a stretch of sand.

For those looking for all-inclusive luxury, those wanting to take advantage of Cuba's clear waters, and those who need little more than a sun lounger to be happy, there's a place for you in Varadero. If it's good enough for the likes of Al Capone and Irénée Du Pont, who once owned beachside mansions here, then we are sure you'll love it too.

Central Cuba

You approach these two islands from the south, across a causeway that runs along the ocean between vibrant mangroves. The beaches are on the opposite side of the island, facing the North Atlantic which here takes on a bright turquoise hue from powdery white sands. In fact, all colors seem to take on a shimmering rainbow quality on these paradise islands.

Once you've chosen to travel to Cayo Coco and Cayo Guillermo, the only other step is to pick one of the many beachside hotels to reside in during your stay. With onsite restaurants and options for all-inclusive activities, you'll probably only leave your resort to check out the sand on the beaches nearby.
