“Love the City of Matanzas”
Reviewed February 19, 2011

Matanzas is about 40 km from Varadero and about 25 km from the Varadero Airport. It is a city of about 125,000 and is the real Cuba. Our favourite 2 spots are Monserrate and Parque de Libertad (Liberty Park). We just love sitting on a park bench and watch all of the action. It is the centre of the city. There are Theatres, Churches, a Pharmaceutical and other museums, Bellamare Caves and several beaches. Monserrate is the highest point of the city and you get a beautiful view of the bay. There are lots of bridges in Matanzas as it is built on 3 rivers. There are lots of inexpensive restaurants ( a meal for less than 3 CUCs). There is the Tropicana Caberet show and you can also do kereoke there as well. There is a baseball stadium, a Zoo and Hershey train station. Its a great place to visit and see the real Cuba.
