El Parque de la Artesanía (The Handicrafts Park) is a huge venue, located in the Varadero Town, where you can find all sort of souvenirs, from Che Guevara and almendrones’ items to beautiful and comfortable handmade dresses or sculptures. The variety of handicrafts is really impressive, even when sometimes you will visit different stands and find out similar pieces. However, prices are disputable and, if it is your lucky day, you will get a nice discount from the artisan.
Be ready to walk at least 30 minutes, and that’s if you are really hurry and don’t stop too much to watch. But if you have time and are interested in the fair, it may take you a longer time, though you’ll enjoy it for sure. Remember that all kind of paintings, sculptures, clothes, percussion instruments, necklaces, and souvenirs in general are waiting for you at The Handicrafts Park.
