The person guiding you inside speaks many languages, making the visit very enjoyable. A small walk from the Blau Varadero hotel and many visit using transport from Varadero

This is a bat cave on the main drag to Varadero. It has amazing history inside and hundreds of different species of bats. Loved it

Too far to walk. Your best bet is the hop on/hop off Beachtur bus. Your hotel can direct you to bus stop just outside hotel gates. The cost is 5 CUC per person and the ticket is good all day so you can combine with bus trip... More
