It is a cool looking semi underground area, that some people call "the circles". it's like half park, half mall. They have clothing shops, an internet cafe, and a grocer selling eastern european stuff and alcohol. The beer is $0.90, so why not.

I have been to Varadero many times and this is first time visited this shopping area. I did not find it very interesting and would rather have gone to the markets. Strange setup and walked around in circles, Won't bother to go there again.

Convenient shopping mall located right downtown . One of the better perks of the place is that it has ATM machines and a CADECA . You'll get better rates than at the hotel lobby . I always check it out while I'm strolling around downtown...More
