VARADERO DIARY

I always wanted to spend the big 3 0 at a place I had never been before but had been dreaming of for ever!  For me that place was Cuba, a country that my late grandpa had visited and told me about on many occasions and had captured his heart!  After visiting La Habana and spending every possible moment exploring the crumbling colonial beauty, for my big day I wanted to be somwhere relaxing and chilled, Varadero was the perfect spot!

Siempre había querido pasar los grandes 3 0 en un lugar que nunca había estado pero con el que siempre había sonado!  Para mi ese lugar era Cuba, un lugar que mi difunto abuelo había visitado y del cual se había enamorado!  Después de visitar La Habana y pasar cada posible momento explorando la bella ciudad colonial, para el gran día real quería algo relajante y relajado, Varadero era el lugar perfecto!

My first impression was simply wow!  The impossibly soft white sand was the consistency of 00 flour, the three-toned turquoise ocean was like a shimmering painting made real, the clear water allowed us to seek out and hold starfish (for just a second!), the soft breeze…  The most beautiful beach I have seen in my life so far.  A true vision of paradise!

Mi primera impresión fue simplemente wow!  La arena blanca no podía ser mas suave, su consistencia como la harina 00, el océano turquesa de tres tonos parecía una pintura, el agua clara nos permitió buscar y tocar estrellas de mar (por sólo un segundo!), la brisa suave… La playa más hermosa que he visto en mi vida hasta ahora.  Una verdadera visión del paraíso!

Beachfront resorts in Caribbean Varadero tend to be all-inclusive, which I’m not a huge fan of as food is normally  hit and miss (often more miss!).  However, we were in the Royal Service section in a beach front suite in Paradisus Varadero which was absolutely stunning!  The beautiful bath, outdoor shower, giant bed, and breakfast on the terrace while looking at the heavenly beach rolling into the picturesque ocean was everything I had dreamed of and more!  Our wonderfully friendly and charming butler made everything effortless and the food at the restaurant was really delicious too, and I managed to keep to my portion-control as the sizes kept me satisfied but not over full.  Favourite dishes included the Cuban soup and garlic lobster both super yum!

Los hoteles frente al mar en el Caribe Varadero tienden a ser todo incluido, algo de lo cual no soy gran fan ya que la comida es normalmente impredecible (a menudo no muy buena!).  Sin embargo, estábamos en la sección de Servicio Real en una suite frente al mar en Paradisus Varadero, que era absolutamente impresionante!  La espectacular tina, la ducha al aire libre, una cama gigante, y el desayuno en la terraza mientras contemplaba la playa celestial rodando en el pintoresco océano era todo lo que había soñado y más!  Nuestro maravilloso, amable y encantador mayordomo hizo todo lo necesario para complacernos y la comida en el restaurante fue realmente deliciosa.  Me las arreglé para mantener mi control de porciones ya que los tamaños de los platillos me mantuvieron satisfecha pero no demasiado lleno.  Mis platillos favoritos incluyeron la sopa cubana y la langosta de ajo, una delicia!

Another huge attraction of this magical beach are its multiple small caves and hollows. This one, right in front of our hotel, looks like a natural sea-water swimming pool, but when the tide is high, it almost becomes a gushing fountain!  There are many rocky formations that I enjoyed photographing and then laughing when they made me completely soaked as a water rushed in and came spurting up like and exploding salty volcano, it looked almost from another world!

Otra gran atracción de esta mágica playa son sus múltiples pequeñas cuevas y huecos.  Este, justo en frente de nuestro hotel, parece una piscina natural de agua de mar, pero cuando la marea es alta, casi se convierte en una fuente que fluye!  Hay muchas formaciones rocosas que me disfruté fotografiando y luego me reí muchísimo cuando me dejaron completamente empapada cuando las olas se precipitaron y salieron a chorros como si el hoyo fuese un volcán, parecía casi otro planeta!

    This literally looks like paradise. Happy birthday Whitney! I’m so happy Cuba has become accessible to the world more, because it looks like such a beautiful place. These photographs are beautiful and you can tell they were taken by someone who knows you well. Also, that breakfast looks amazing. xx

    Your photos are really lovely, looks like you had a great time. What a super idea to spend your 30th birthday in such a cool place (FYI; 30s are SO the new 20s 😉 ).
    I honestly did not like Varadero that much, too touristic and not as nice of a city as e.g. Trinidad, Havana or Viñales but the beach was ABSOLUTE HEAVEN though…

      Hahaha thanks Bibi! 30 feels just as great as beig 15 or 20 or whatever to be fair! I totally get you on Varadero, but I looooved the beach so much, and for a place to just chill and walk about is perfect.
