We stayed in a little apartment we found on airbnb https://www.airbnb.com/rooms/
7679359?guests=2&adults=2&s= B4Q0W8by that was conveniently located right across the street from the beach and walking distance to restaurants and shopping. I wish I grabbed the name of the restaurant we ate at our final night here because the food was soooo good! The bakery in town was awesome too. One thing that we thought was different was the supermarket. It wasn't very big and there was a whole isle of alcohol, another isle of juice and cookies, one isle with pasta and that was pretty much it. No produce or water. I'm not sure if that is due to an importation thing but it was a good thing restaurants were reasonably priced and close by. We stayed here for two nights which felt like enough time for us. I personally could have stayed another day but Tanner prefers to be a little more busy. We were there in January and it was pretty sleepy while we were there. I liked it that way and after dinner, we would go back to our apartment and watch movies on our laptop. It was quiet when we went to bed which was different than our stay in Havana. One thing to note was that the beds were NOT comfortable at all. They were hard and you could feel the springs. I would wake up sore from sleeping on my sides. Varadero is a two in a half hour drive from Havana and we took a classic taxi which was around $120 one way. We stopped at a pina colada "tourist trap" along the way but they were honestly the best pina coladas we've ever had! We caught a ride back to the Havana airport for $60 since it was a rental car that needed to go back to the airport. You just need to ask around for this option.
