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.
