A very pretty park to stop and have a drink and watch the ducks and swans in the large pond. Haven't tried the restaurants yet but will. It's a must-see to take a break from shopping or walking around town.

Enjoyed a lovely Pina Colada in a very quiet and beautiful setting. The park and lake were stunning.

Ona number of day trips to Varadero we stopped off at Josone Park for a pina colada at the bar. Nice and friendly with chickens roaming freely, sat by the lake. Go there for a bit of peace and quiet.!!

It's a nice bit of green space in the middle of a place with very little on show. Other than a couple of restaurants and some paddle boats, there really isn't much to do or see. Kids might enjoy the ducks and chickens, though. A word of warning: visiting the public washroom in this park was one of the biggest... More

Fantastic peaceful park set in the middle of Varadero. Several bars and eateries with probably the best piña colada in Cuba to be had at Bar 1920. Great photo opportunities in this wonderful tranquil setting.

not many people leave their all inclusive hotels but this place offers something different and you can meet more locals.

A free park to visit that was once home to some of Varadero's wealthiest families it was a nice place to walk around but this place also served creamy pina coladas made with milk and a powder instead of out of a coconut. Terrible drink! Too hot the day we were there to use the peddle boats in the very... More
