We decided to pay the $5 CUC for the tour on the open topped double decker Habana Bus around Varadero. You can hop on and off at any of the popular stops on the bus tour in Varadero.
Wed seen these open topped double decker busses around Varadero a lot, they look really cool so we decided to give it a go.
You can start at any of the many stops which are mostly right outside your hotel. The bus is really easy to find, you cant miss it, just wait on the road side from your hotel and itll stop It will even wait for you if it sees you coming!
The bus tour continually circulates past all the big hotels and resorts plus the Marina and Varadero town, its super convenient and surprisingly good value at only $5 CUC each.
The tour takes around 1 hour 45mins and although the circuit doesnt appear to be exactly the same every single time its still a great trip.
We got off at the Marina right at the tip of Varadero, there are a few shops plus a lot of restaurants, apartments and hotels. It was pretty quiet during the day, might liven up a lot at night I think. They had the best supermarket weve seen so far in Cuba here. Day trips to the islands leave from here too.
Once you have bought your ticket on the bus this allows you a full day pass to get on and off at any of the bus stops along the way.
Buses run every 30mins.
Sit on the top for the best views, however its really hot in the sun.
This is the cheapest way to see Varadero. For only $5 CUC it’s great value.
