Marina-Varadero

Photo Feature by Juan Suare

HAVANA TIMES – These pictures belong to the Varadero Marina complex where many yachts are docked at the end of the Hicacos peninsula. It is not a hotel; it is a fairly new place of recreation like the Plaza Las Americas also found in Varadero. There are shops, restaurants, cafes, bowling and a disco.

The only activity that is banned for Cubans are the water tours that are only for foreign tourists. More hotels are being built in this area.

I asked a waitress if there was WiFi and where I could pay for the service. She replied that it was free, so I connected with no problem. While there I could see many Cubans with their laptops and cell phones connected that day. Maybe it was just a promotion.

  • Well Griffin the way it works is that the USA is the only country in the world that offers refugees a prize if they put their lives at risk and cross the Florida Straights in a rubber tube – it’s called ‘putting foot on dry land’ in the USA – of course no other refugees are afforded the same generosity not even so call allies – Oh and did I mention that the refugees go on US social services when or if they get there? Who needs a yacht when you have a rubber tube to paradise?

  • No. I find it perfectly consistent with the situation that the country finds itself in due to 57 years of US embargo. They prepare for the day the worlds only super power allows them to make a living errr…. that is from them, by them and for the benefit of them – gee thanks guys

  • Get ready for the ‘Cuban women make great wives’ introduction services.

  • Sorry – cynicism doesn’t always come across well on the net – I do admire it though. Great line, hasta siempre, ganacias, btw. Yo mucho quiero aprender hablar espagnol!

  • Yes, I know about the Cuban balseros. That was what I was hinting at.
