“Free Samples!”
Reviewed October 29, 2013

This is a cute little stop on the Varadero tour. We were greeted with 7 different types of shots :) It is an interesting history lesson and the staff are very friendly. The prices are typical of most Rum sales in Cuba.

“Tasty treats.”
Reviewed October 14, 2013 via mobile

You are welcomed with open arms into this store. There are many varieties of RUM and cigars and coffee and the people in the store that serve you are so friendly they offer you free shots to taste different RUM and one of the best RUM that they sell there is the cream rum it looks like banana cream. We have been to Cayo Coco this August and they do not sell this type of cream rum there it's only sold in Varadero so if you enjoy it grab it there why you can.

“Great selection but watch the prices”
Reviewed October 14, 2013

Like other reviewers have said, you can sample different rums before purchasing. However, beware of the price - prices are cheaper at Plaza America.
