Visited on a Sunday so the beach was packed with families, The tourist (hoponhopoff) bus is the best way to get there and back for just 5cuc. Get off at Tropicoco hotel (ghastly!).

We wanted a few days on the beach after a month travelling through Cuba before returning to Canada. We ended up in a good casa in Guanabo (the last playa heading east) but that was the only good thing about our time there. The beach was littered with dead jellyfish, the restaurants - although recommended - were not great and forget trying to access the internet in Guanabo. They won't let you through the door! We agreed we should have gone back to Varadaro for our beach relaxation time.

We visited Varadero and the famous beaches near Trinidad but Santa Clara beach in Playas de Este was our favourite; it's peaceful and beautiful. Would highly recommend it!

We stayed here at the Hotel Atlántico for 3 days at a Cuban Beach Resort. The beach area was beautiful and we walked for hours along the beach. Not a lot of people crowding the beach either which made it even nicer. We would come back here.
