Varadero is on the Hicacos peninsula between the Straights of Florida and the Bay of Cardenas on the Cuban island. The peninsula is 20 km long and is the northernmost point of Cuba. At its widest, the peninsula is 1.2 km wide. The channel “Kawama” separates the peninsula from the mainland. On the tip of the peninsula is a carefully kept nature reserve that houses 31 species birds and 24 species reptiles. It also houses the cave of Ambroso, a 250 m cave, a lake and the first salt works established on the island. Varadero has exceptionally good conditions for deep sea fishing, scuba diving, yachting and other water sport activities.
Even though Varadero is only a small town, its airport is the second busiest in the country thanks to the constant flow of tourists traveling to Varadero, mostly from Canada and Europe. The airport is not very big, but it’s filled with small souvenir and duty-free shops. Cuban currency cannot be exchanged outside of Cuba unless you plan on going back. You will need to pay a 25 CUC departure tax when you leave (to be paid in cash). Security isn’t very tight when you leave because several people have reported leaving with bottles of liquid.

It averages about 8 pesos about 10 km, which is the distance between the area with the resorts and downtown Varadero.
