Hotel Herradura is a run down, charming, eclectic, funky, unpretentious soviet style hotel on the Cuba side of Varadero. it has lots of warts, but a lovely staff and the most fantastic stretch of beach right outside. We loved it, even though our door knob fell off.

Cara y Alan,
Our time here in Cuba is going so quickly! It's hard to believe that we will be back in Mexico next week.
After Playa Larga we decided to go to Varadero – the "Miami Beach" of Cuba. I don’t know quite what I expected, but I certainly did not expect what I found.
Varadero is …
... ve spent 3 days having a fabulous time, our 3rd floor room has a side view of the Ocean, just spoilt by the dozens of palm trees that surround this corner of Cuban paradise. Its a 2 minute walk to the powder soft sandy beach. Oh God its a hard life, but we're coping pretty well! We meander to the huge breakfast buffet around 9 every morning, enjoy freshly squeezed juices, pastries of every type, eggs done however you ...
... Taxi to an impending Police speed patrol, but the vision of at least 500 head of White large horned Steers coming towards us on the opposite carriageway with an entourage of Gauchos very reminiscent of Rawhide (for those of you who remember that Cowboy programme and the hero, Rowdy Yates from the early 60s) it was just an unbelievable thing to see. I still have thoughts that cattle herding on this scale just couldnt happen on any motorway in England, there isnt enough room!
... and be able to visit it every few months. Cuba is loosing out on many who would love to go for the health bennefits of the natural organic non gmo foods, the fresh unpolluted air, avoidance of toxic chemicals, the beach and the weather. I loved the people and thought I had found my second home at memories. I left early never to return unless something like this would not happen again. Most in my community will NOT go there and warn others not to go. ...
We had to wake up early this morning to go snorkelling. The bus was supposed to meet met us at about 8:30 but typical Cuba time, it arrived closer to 9, from there we had about a 20min ride to the beach. We got briefed then received all our gear that we needed to do the swim. Katie was very nervous at this point as she's not very much of a water person, but a I have to say I'm proud of her as she did it with a little bit of hesitation at first but loosened up at the end. I think ...
