January 2016, Matanzas vs Las Tunas. The stadium is very old and the utilities are not great. However the baseball and atmosphere were great. Our tour guide from the resort was awesome and gave us some background on both teams during the bus ride from Varadero to Matanzas. I was staying at Memories in Varadero. I definitely recommend going to... More

A short bus ride from resorts in Varadero, the spectacle of Cuban baseball is something to see. Thousands of rabid fans making a tremendous amount of noise (this can overwhelm some), cheering their team and jeering the opposition and the umpires. A great spot for people-watching. All tourists sit together in a reserved area: these are excellent seats. Note: the... More

As a baseball fan this was a must on our trip to Cuba. You cant compare the atmosphere to anything in North America. Everyone is in to every pitch. This is an extremely cheap outing. Tickets and food are very cheap. Beer in the stadium would be nice but that would be my only con with regards to this. Certainly... More

I've visited Cuba previously many times and the one thing I have always "struck out" on its seeing Cuba's official sport live. Well I finally got the chance, and I am extremely happy I did. Visiting this stadium is approximately 45 minutes from Centro Varadero. You can either go by taxi, or go through an excursion company. My experience through... More

After hearing my father and grandfather speaking so highly into the heritage of playing baseball. I was able to experience some true Cuban culture. It was awesome to see many good players and see why many American major league baseball players originated from Cuba. I loved every minute of my experience and truly plan on going back to explore my... More

If you want a great glimpse into a bit of Cuban culture, you should really try and see a baseball game in Cuba. We watch Havana Industriales take on the Matanzas Crocidilios. The quality of baseball is about the same as a triple A game in North America. Interesting to see some of the nuance differences to the North American... More

We did a bit of research before we left, so we knew the game times at Matanzas stadium. We could not book a tour from our resort. They passed us from one company to the next, so we ended up walking out to the taxi stand and asking "Who wants to go watch baseball with us?"... We booked a return... More

Went to see a National Baseball Game - Hoguin Vs Mantanzas. Sat right behind home plate, and watched a great game. Mantanzas won 6 -0 !

The aka Cocodrilos' home club is always a fun place to go. Matanzas has a very competitive team despite the many losses lately. Cheap admission fee and lots of food to buy and funny fans. Just do it.

As soon as we booked our vacation for Varadero, I was curious if going to a baseball game in the vicinity was a viable option. Online, I was able to confirm that there was a team in Matanzas and that they would be playing Pinar del Rio during our stay. When we arrived at our resort, I touched base with... More
