Josone Park, Varadero

4.1
#Nature / Park, #Must See
The 9 hectare (22 acre) Josone Park represents one of the most popular places in the city, attracting half a million people annually. The lake provides a backdrop for colorful birds and tropical plants, and you can hire pedal boats to explore it. The park also features a swimming pool, miniature golf, and a playground, plus lots of spots to find a bit of shade and watch the world go by. A few bars and restaurants on the outskirts provide a place in which to escape the heat and refuel. Sometimes live bands perform here.

  • It is a quiet and very nice, place for walking in couple or with children. It's relaxing and because of its size you don't have many people to your about at least compared to other places, is a park. I liked the bar beside the Lake.

  • Very nice Park, nice and quiet. A background, near the highway, one can find a pool that seems reserved for Cubans. There are several popular restaurants and do not miss the Pina Colada to Varadero 1920 Bar at the entrance to the Park!

  • The Park is how-to from two parts-lake water bicycles and birds, and a shaded part with beautiful trees. At the end of the Park is the Beatles bar with live music. Admission is free with a 14-00 to 2-00.

  • Great place. First time visit. Absolutely impressive
  • Ordinary park.. nothing special there..some restaurants that I didn't try. But night club/bar The Beatles is next to the park, it's my favorite bar in Varadero!
  • Nice park with multiple restaurants. Good options for food and drinks.
  • Beautiful park. Saw chickens and chicks. The bar is quite nice but was quite when we went. Do not sit on top of the huge trees. Our bottoms were burning from the red insects.
  • This tired park has seen better days and I expected a lot more given the way it was described in the 2015 edition of the Lonely Planet. Things must have gone downhill rapidly because there was a mini golf course that was overgrown and covered with leaves and no apparent place to hire balls or putters and a disused empty swimming pool and bar area towards the back that seems to be crumbling away too. The landscaped pond looks nice but given the lack of people, even in high season, this place feels like a shadow of what it probably once was.
