    Hi everybody. I am going to Varadero with a wide range of ages. 18 months to 73 years old. I wanted to plan an excursion for evryone to enjoy. We will be hoping to rent a tour bus to take us to Havana for a day. But I was thinks of doing something else too. And am at a loss as to what to suggest. I have heard the Catamran is great, but other than that are there any ther eco type tours that anybody could suggest? I don't expect everyone we are traveling with to go but I want to interest most. There are two that I was looking at, but am unsure of which is better. If anybody out there has tried these could you please tell about them or any others that might be of interest. We have no issues with renting a vehicle to take ourselves.
    This excursion is planned for the first week.

    The Cuban Safari....ride a jeep thru jungle and go snokeling in a cave, horseback riding.
    The snorkelling adventure.... snokel in different location
    Cayo Blanco... Catamaran, snorkeling, dolphin show

    We are planning on doing our own version of the Rambo Tour. So we will be driving to Guanayara National Park, Trinidad, Cienfuegos, and Santa Clara before returning to Varadero. ( For this we will rent vehicle and probably be gone 2 or 3 days). This excursion is planned for people who are staying the second week.

      I went to Varadero last year for a wedding, and the couple chose to do the catamaran tour to Cayo Blanco. About half the group went and we had a fabulous time!! It was for sure one of the highlights of our trip.

      You get picked up around 9ish and it is a really fun day...they serve drinks on the catamaran and at the island Cayo Blanco (that made the day even more fun lol) and there is a full buffet as well. They offer a lobster tail on the catamaran for 10 pesos which was THE BEST I have ever had....totally worth it and my fiance and I still talk about it!
      The guide for the day was so full of energy and on the way home we had a dance party on the boat. When we go down next May this is 100% on our list to do with our guests.
