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.
We spent 6 days in Varadero and loved it. Stunning beaches, warm water, safe swimming, all inclusive resorts with endless food and drinks all day long. Read our own info on Varadero here
