Great little spot to stop in and have a drink and take some pictures

There is a great little bar really close to the water that serves the best Pina Colada. You can also rent paddle boats and it's a very nice place to take a leisurely walk and take... read more

Very nice park, beware if you need the washroom it's hidden way around behind the restaurant at the edge of the parking lot and is very creepy. There is a man at the entrance with the doors locked and wants a 1.00 to use the bathroom. I refused to pay for what should be free and he called me back... More

Great park with a boating lake, 4 good restaurants and 2 bars. Well worth spending an hour or 2 here.

There is almost nothing to see or do in Varadero except snoozing on the beach. But you can easily spend an hour or two in Parque Josone, the area's charming green lung. Stroll around, relax on a bench in the shadow, watch life (birds and funny looking tourists) pass by, pedal the lake on the water cycles, try a wine... More

This was an interesting find as we walked Varadero main street having alighted from the open top double deck bus. Entrance is free. The lake is large and has pedalos and row boats that you can hire - a bit pricey though at 5 CUC per hour - or you can just walk and enjoy the larger garden area behind,... More

This park was the former house of Batista. It has a restaurant and bar where you can go to grab something to drink and eat. Is pretty big and there is a lake that you can go through it on a beautiful long bridge.

Lovely area of Varadero to walk around and enjoy the lovely scenery the park has to offer. There are some nice looking restaurants in the park with lovely views. AVOID the public toilets in this park ... they are beyond hygienic, barely usable and desperately need to be sorted.

After shopping at the mall and markets we relaxed at the park. It was a nice walk. Food was available and pedal boats for the pond.
