Varadero and the Solymar Resort

As you can see this was a huge all-inclusive resort. I’ve marked where our suites are. They were top floor overlooking the pool with an ocean view.
Both units were beautiful, but we ended up with this end unit with a huge balcony.

Nice deck.
A smaller balcony next to our bed overlooking the pool; there were two of them.
A spacious bath with his and her sinks, a jacuzzi tub, shower, walk-in closet and a separate area with toilet and bidet. There was also a second half bath off the great room.

Our view of the resort grounds.

And the ocean.
Our deck from out on the roof looking back. Yes, that’s my Bucanero beer!
The lobby was equally beautiful with these enormous vines hanging down!

More close-ups of the grounds.

One of the numerous bars available.
And of course, the white sandy beach!

We did venture into town for some shopping and sightseeing. We took this carriage for our return trip to the resort.

On our trip back we suffered a “flat tire”; the rubber slipped off the steel rim and our driver had to stop and re-attach it.

But alas, our vacation is over, back to the grind 😎

Goodbye, Cuba. Until next time! We would love to return and see even more of this fascinating, beautiful country !
