Matanzas is one of the glamorous cultural beacons of Cuba’s past. Situated on the shore of a large bay, the city has been called the Athens of Cuba when the cultural and economic life of the city outshone that of Havana back in the 19th century. Meeting with the city´s cultural wealth, snorkeling and swimming at Coral Beach or Saturno Cave, visiting Bellamar Caves, the first Cuban tourist attraction, and enjoying the scenic landscape of Canimar River Park and its creole cuisine are a must for any visitor who intends to taste our natural and cultural charms just 30 minutes from Varadero. We offer a personalized service, no jeep tour caravans!!!
