We always make it a point to stop my for a stroll around and a drink or two. Nice restaurants in the park as well.

We didn't go into the parque this time, but it is a large, attractive, scenic garden area, a welcome break from the busy village, market area.

This is very dry and not really worth making an effort to see. It seemed to be a place for the locals to meet but had nothing else to recommend it.

This was more of just a green space in the centre of Varadero, and rather sparse. There were a few interesting trees, and some chickens wandering about, but it wasn't nearly as nice to visit as Josone Park was.

Great pina coladas. Small but a nice walk. There is a small lake, a patio bar that serves great drinks with super staff. A pleasant change from walking the strip.

We discovered this park whilst walking through Varadero.As the name suggests it is pretty much in the centre of town.There are some shaded areas ,a couple of shops,bars and restaurants and plenty of seating.A good place to take a break whilst exploring the town.

We hired a guide who took us to all of Havanas attractions. This area was great. Lots of history so go to travel tourism and ask them for a guide for the day. He was brilliant

These comments pertain to the actual Parque Central in Veradero, not the hotel of the same name in Havana. I can see how there may be confusion. This is a pretty little park; it's clean and there is plenty of sitting. We were not there...More
