I have a couple of questions about activities we are interested in in Varadero:
My friend is mostly interested in snorkelling while we are in Cuba. I'm going to go as well so she isn't alone but I'm not the strongest swimmer - I can swim I just prefer to snorkel from the beach and not out in deep water. Has anyone done this excursion? Is the snorkelling difficult or far off-shore? Are their better places to snorkel?
Snorkeling Adventure - Pick up at your hotel by bus to go to Playa Coral. Swim to the coral by the beach. Snorkeling for approx 1 hour. Back to the beach by swim. Bus Ride the the Saturn Caves. Snorkeling in the Caves approx 30-45 min. Equipment included.
2. Tropicana Show
My parents recommended we go to the tropicana show in Havana but that excursion seems expensive and I've also heard it's a long/tiring day. Is the Tropicana show in Havana so much better than the one in Varadero that it is worth it, or should we just go to the show in Varadero? We also may just do the colonial Havana tour instead of going to the Tropicana show. I've been to the Tropicana show in Holguin and enjoyed it, but probably wouldn't go again. I've just heard that the one in Havana is so much better.
3. Any other suggestions for things to do? Are their any pubs/bars in Varadero that have good live music?
