Josone Park, Varadero

4.1
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.

  • Gorgeous park right in the middle of the city. The peacock is beautiful and the restaurant is really nice. The day we were there the little train wasn't working. I would go back again for sure  more »
  • A beautiful and very quiet, perfect place to go for a picnic or enjoy the greenery of the landscape. It is a love story that few people know about and which makes the place a perfect place to be with the couple. The Dante Italian restaurant is delicious and has a beautiful view to the Lake. The Pina coladas in the bar near the Lake are the most delicious of Varadero.

  • 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.
  • Nice park for a walk or to go jogging in the morning. A couple of animals are running around and they have some nice restaurants and bars which open in the evening. The mini golf place is pretty messed up but I guess it is not active anymore, same for the pool at the back of the park.
  • An old park, but some decent restaurants in the middle of the park by the water.
  • Really enjoyed the italian restaurant and also the pina coladas are the best
  • Nice to place to relax and even a drink or something to eat
