In addition to dreamy beaches, Varadero (VRA) offers a fascinating history still reflected in the cityscape. Originally the home of Native Americans, the peninsula served as both a port for Spaniards to repair ships and a pirate hideout. In the 19th century, Cuban hacienda owners and wealthy Americans began to construct stately beachside villas, and tourism began. The most famous villa owner in Varadero (VRA) was doubtlessly Al Capone, who only used his property to store smuggled goods. The building can be toured and now houses a restaurant as well. Now that Cuba has once again opened its doors to international tourism, foreigners have the chance to experience this unique blend of Cuban lifestyle and historical flair.
