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.

... enjoyed seeing the reef and all the fish it was really cool, plus it helped that the water was a nice temperature, the guide said it was about 26°. We were snorkelling there for about an hour, and got to see an awesome array of tropical fish, our favourite one reminded us of the children's book, ‘The Rainbow Fish’ because it was blue with sparkley blue scales along the top of it, unfortunately the photos we tried to take of it didn't work out though. We got ...
... what point is it ok for adult men to throuw sand at passers by? Or are they free to do as they please if they've had a few shots of rum on the side? Again, I struggle to understand why two girls travelling on their own have to fight so hard for a pleasurable, unharrassing moment the minute they step out of their bedroom door!!!
