Have you checked out the list of excursions available from Varadero which you can find on the top right hand side of the Varadero home page under Top questions about Varadero.

The park (sorry forgot the name) is a wonderful place to spend hours wandering around enjoying the swans and the sun. It's easy to rent a scooter and see the sights.

how cheap is cheap ... you take the local bus into Havana and do a self walking tour in old Havana if you do your research .... the hop on hop off 5 CUC bus into Varadero (pass good for the day providing you use the same colour bus all day Red or green bus)

Diving in Cuba is beautiful and reasonably cheap.

2 dives, $90 CUC if you are not certified. Includes everything.

that park is probably Josone park /with swans and such/

i would do jeep tour /73 CUC per adult/ - whole day of activities

we did it just last week for the first time /in our 5th time in varadero/ and it was a day and CUC's well spent... /and no - we didn't "feed" any "poor" cubans that were standing along our roads...- that varadero forum opened our eyes to some "problems" that we were blind to before/...

Check out La Arboleda on the Canimar River, closer to Matanzas city. Trip advisor has reviews. Also see dolphins within walking distance of Be Live Turquesa and Ibo Taines. Also, toward the east end of the peninsula is an area of natural flora-gate fee, walk about. Also reasonable are the small sail catamarans out to a bit of reef for snorkeling-also off the stretch along the two above resorts.

Is the hop on hop off still available for Matanzas? 10 CUC or something?

Edit..Forgot that I'd kept the website..appears to still be available.
