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.

Now for a massive buffet diner and relaxing ...
... our weekend get-away with dinner at La Mina, a recommended restaurant in the old city. Even though they had run out of a couple of dishes, it was still the best meal we had on the entire trip. We finished our adventure with a walk of the old city where we stumbled on a fashion show in the Plaza de la Catedral.
It had been a memorable four days and we were sad to leave the next morning. Cuba beckons. We will return.
