Just love this team even though we have come in second place in the last couple of years. The stadium is alive with spirit and it is always a pleasure to cheer the team on. I was a bit disappointed when they stopped allowing alcohol (a cold, cold beer in the heat of the day was refreshing), and unless I... More

So much fun! What a great experience. I try and get a few playoff games in a year! The popcorn is amazing, bathrooms are around, typical baseball stadium.

We had been to Cuba 4 times before but never had the opportunity to take in a game. Last year the only home game was the day we had to leave. This year however, they were playing at home the week we were in Varadero. Finally we had the chance to make it to a game and we were not... More

This place was absolutely nuts! Went to a game between Matanzas and Villa Clara in February 2014. The atmosphere was wild, you could really tell the fans were into it. There was a lot of street vendors selling some food/drinks outside the stadium since there were rules against alcohol inside the stadium itself. The game cost us 3 CUC each,... More

We were fortunate to be able to attend the final game of the first half of the season of the Cuban baseball league in December. The Matanzas Cocodrilos had already clinched first place and would be playing in the second half of the season, but their opponent, the Santiago Bees needed to win to make it to the final 8....

This past December was the second time I've seen a Cuban league game live in Matanzas. I highly recommend it to anyone who wants to experience a real part of Cuban life and for those that enjoy baseball. The games can be quite entertaining and the fans really get into the game. The quality of baseball is quite high and... More

If you love baseball you know the Caribbean pumps out it's fair share of all-stars. While if you're visiting Cuba make a day trip to catch a Matanzas game. The atmosphere is intoxicating, the ticket price is cheap and the stands are always full. We came to take in a game while staying in Varadero and it was one of... More

Was very exciting! The Cuban people certainly enjoy their ball games! Felt very safe. Bathrooms were not very nice, and avoided the food being sold. Beer sold outside, but none allowed inside.
