Plaza America

Varadero's first proper shopping mall still stands, and although the array of shops may seem underwhelming to an outsider, there are some rather useful tourist locales here, such as a bank, pharmacy, a few souvenir shops and stores selling anything a traveler may need.


Cigars, rum, coffee and honey are some of the items most sought-after by travellers to Cuba, and rightfully so - these locally-produced products make for perfect gifts and souvenirs, and are often a great bargain to purchase in their land of origin. Products of the non-edible variety include wood handicrafts, Cuban art, music paraphernalia and records. For serious antiques and vintage shopping, it might be worth to plan a trip to Havana, where finds range from rare jewellery to books and magazines.
