There is a large concrete plant 3/4 way out the spit on the bay side. About 5Km beyond the Internacional.

Thanks for the update :)

And yes, the travel websites are projecting an opening date in 2018 which really isnt too long from now.

We have been to Cuba 20 times between 2004 and now. 16 times to Varadero. Have watched lots of construction in progress during various trips to the awesome country of Cuba.. I will continue to watch the construction of this hotel .

Cant wait to check-in to stay at the NEW Hotel Internacional :) and see whats new and different between the old hotel and the new one.

Thanks for the update!

Loved that old place, you walked right out of the main lobby and onto the sandy beach.

Looks like the new hotel is set back a bit from the beach......as are most of the newer constructions. The closest thing to the old Internacional beach front is Cuatro Palmas, I think. But, really, the old Internacional was unique, even in its rather ''run down'' days ( faded glory ? )

I didn't think it was that much further back from the beach than the old one...I walked there in Sept to check it out...the beach area there is huge and goes quite a ways back. But not a lot was done then construction wise.

I loved the old one..the charm....the price....the location......

I am scared to see what the pricing will be for this when it opens....prime beach and close to town location....top dollar I am sure!

We were there just before it closed and the fences across the street were already up. I understood that they would be rebuilding but never got a date of reopening - hopefully this will happen but it will be bigger and further to walk to the beautiful sand.
