    I come from There.The article fall short far of saying that
    Varadero is One of the top 5 beaches in the World Acapulco,
    Copacabana,Cancun have nothing more better than Varadero.I
    know Cancun and it is marvelous,but for me,Varadero is better,
    However many things,pivotal ones,have to change in the code
    of cuban tourism,and the first is Nationals come first,tourist
    come after and by no means,that means neglected tourist service,very professional in all of aspects of Tourism,but
    stressing the concept Nationals aqre the first,foreigners the
    second,In Cuba is The opposite.
