Varadero beach is considered by many the best beach of Cuba. The first families established their summer houses at the end of the XIX century but it wasn’t until the late 1920’s when it became the gateway of the wealthiest Cuban families and foreigner millionaires. After the 1959 Revolution, all beaches were declared public, many of the owners of these houses fled to USA and the new government took control of the empty properties. Nowadays, the houses are occupied either by descendants of the original owners, government oficies or foreign companies.
In the 1990’s, with the opening and developing of Tourism, many foreign companies invested with the local government and build over hotels and resorts, transforming Varadero in the massive touristic center it is today.
