Tourists on a Varadero vacation are often tempted just to sit by the resort swimming pool or laze on the long white-sand beach (probably the finest of all Cuba beaches). A visit to the Delfinario Varadero makes a great change of pace on a Varadero vacation.

The Delfinario (dolphinarium), is located close to Varadero, just along the Cuban coastline. It features a large pool surrounded by trees and other vegetation. There are four dolphin shows daily between the hours of 8 am and 5 pm, featuring aquatic and air acrobatics by the delfinario’s porpoise residents. For a price, visitors to the delfinario can also spend 15 minutes swimming with the captive dolphins: a one in a lifetime experience sure to be the highlight of any vacation.

Tours to the delfinario are available from most hotels and resorts in Varadero and other Cuban cities.

Other good Varadero attractions include the Xanadu Mansion, the Bellamar Caves, and the Museo Varadero. It is easy to combine a visit to the Delfinario Varadero with a visit to one or more of these other Varadero attractions. Further a field, many tour companies in Varadero offer trip to Havana, Trinidad, or other Cuban cities. With the opportunity for exciting day trips or visits to unique sites like the Delfinario, there is no reason to spend an entire Varadero vacation laying on the beach.
