Wow, it’s been a LONG time since I’ve posted to this forum. I’m sorry to see activity has dialed way down in recent years… maybe forums are passé now? Or maybe I’m just remembering 10 years ago wrong?
Anyway, I haven’t been to Cuba in… well, 10 years. Becoming a parent, changing jobs, etc. - we let life get in the way and our travel priority slipped. Now the missus and I are hoping to restart our yearly trips and introduce the new generation to Cuba. The plan is for February 2020 and the destination will be Varadero. I’m looking for resort recommendations in town or somewhere along the Avenida las Americas (meaning, preferably nowhere that requires travel along the autopista, we’re hoping to stay within walking/biking/scooter distance to town). We’ve stayed at Barceló Solymar and Bella Costa and both were great experiences, but we’d like to try somewhere different. The resort would have to be kid-friendly and accommodating for seniors (there will be a senior in our group). I 'm also looking for advice on places to stop/visit in Varadero (history, music, food, whatever). It’s been a while and I’m far out of the loop.
