Owner description: If you travel to Cuba and visit Varadero, the best option we recommend you is snorkel or dive in Beach Coral, we have a group of highly experienced professionals every year we serve more than 2000 clients who had never done the activity. We wait for you on your vacation, you will not regret it I assure you. Snorkeling at Coral Beach or Coral Beach: The snorkeling at Coral Beach or Playa Coral is from the edge of the beach, where there have a depth of less than 1 meter, for beginners we impacted an initiation class where they are taught how to swim and the basics of the equipment . Beginners and inexperienced will have a life jacket, with this all the time they will be on the surface. You will swim approximately 80 meters from the edge until you are on the coral barrier. This activity is from about 45 minutes to 1 hour. Where you can feed the fish with your own hands and even touch them. This excursion if you want this split in 2 Parts. The second part is the Saturn Cave. Saturn Cave: It is a natural swimming pool where fresh water and salt water flows, with formations of stalactites and stalagmites. There is a lake and two galleries where you can find blind shrimp and fish. It has parts where its depth is of 1 meter to 2 meters, as also it has 22 meters of depth in its deepest part but it is so crystalline the water that can be seen to the bottom. You can only do the snorkeling activity as it is very small and deep which is not ideal for diving.

I loved this adventure, but take money because the all inclusive isn't available. Toilets are stinky and seatless but oh well!

There is 2 snorkle/ scuba beaches right next to each other .. Hint is to choose the least busiest cause its the same coral reef and just better one on one
Staff was great but I never met a Cuban that wasn't

Best snorkelling I have ever done. We went twice and it was wonderful. Next time in Varadero we will be doing it at least three times.

We went to Coral Beach and where not disappointed in any way the water was calm and very clear. We went as part of Barracuda snorkeling group and our guides where very helpful it is quite a swim even if you are in good shape.You should have a guide to go out as their are channels to swim in and if you miss them you could run into difficulty with scrapping against the coral. The sights are great and lots of fish:)

Avoid if the ocean is the least bit rough. For those that are first time snorkle people, it makes it very difficult to learn and do with water pushing you all over!!
