The resort of Varadero is easily the best bet when it comes to family fun in Cuba. The white sands and turquoise seas of Cuba’s finest beaches are bound to captivate children and adults alike, and ensure your Cuban family holiday is packed with sun and smiles. Parents may recline under the Caribbean sun while children can contently play on the sand. There are also various water sports widely available, including snorkelling and sailing. The Melia Varadero, Iberostar Varadero and Sol Palmers are all ideal for your family holiday to Cuba, while the Paradisus Varadero Resort is perfect for families after a little more luxury. All four hotels boast children’s swimming pools, kids’ clubs, and playgrounds, guaranteeing that children are kept well-entertained. While the babysitting services ensures parents are afforded plenty of free time to test their salsa skills or take in a music show.

Families looking for a more authentic Cuban holiday experience can combine their Varadero stay with a couple of nights in Cuba’s capital Havana. However a bus journey will take a couple of hours, so this may not be ideal for very restless children.
