Cuba beaches for snorkeling?
it depends. if you want to do off shore snorkeling i would suggest staying at a resort which offers snorkelling directly off the beach without having to get in a boat such as Breezes Jibacoa 4* or the Chameleon Jibacoa 3* next door, or go to Blau Coste Verde or Playa Pesquero....tons more great cuban resorts there.
Right off the bat I will say Varadero isn't really great for snorkelling even though it's a popular vacation spot. I would try Jibacoa, Cayo Santa Maria, Cayo Ensenachos Cayo Coco, or Guardalavaca for snorkeling.
Best walk-in off the beach snorkeling is in Santa Cruz del Norte. Other all-inclusive resort areas with great snorkeling would be Santa Lucia (resort reviews under "Camaguey"), and Guardalavaca / Holguin.
