Cooking in the Kitchen in Cuba!
Be a Part of
 Pickleball History! 
September 10-15, 2024

All Inclusive from Miami including R/T Air
5 Nights/6 Days in Varadero!

History will be made on September 10 when we travel to Varadero, Cuba to be the first Americans to play Pickleball in this Island Nation! Two years in the making for this opportunity and we will bring 16 Players to kick off the future of Pickleball in Cuba!

This is an all inclusive adventure that includes Round Trip Air from Miami and deluxe rooms at Hotel Sol Caribe located on the beaches of Varadero. Here we will find 4 Pickleball courts for the first time ever affiliated with a resort in Cuba. Working with a local Pickleball trainer and former Tennis Champion, Kevin Hernandez will manage our play and courts during our stay. Kevin has been working with locals to teach them a new game and, just like us, they are hooked! We will put together a friendly tournament of Cubans against Americans that will lead to a respect between our citizens and theirs! Detente, anyone? 

The Itinerary
Day 1
Starting on our arrival in Varadero from Miami on September 10, we will check into Hotel Sol Caribe with a welcome cocktail and get ready for free play the rest of the day. This evening, we will get together around the pool for a Welcome Party hosted by Centerline Adventures and Varadero Pickleball Center where we will drink mojitos, enjoy a traditional Cuban dinner and play the Cuban national game of Dominos while smoking great Cuban cigars!

Day 2
Enjoy breakfast in the hotel before venturing out to the courts. Here, Kevin will join us to help and play with us! After lunch you have the option of continuing your play on the courts, hanging out on the magnificent beach or taking a taxi into the town of Varadero. This area of Cuba is known for its resorts and fabulous beaches. You will see classic cars, horse-drawn carriages and various forms of transportation! In Varadero you will find souvenir shops for those gifts you want to take back!

Tonight, we will go to a fun restaurant with a name we will recognize – The Beatles Barestaurant!! With bronze statues of the Fab Four, it provides for a great photo op! The only place in Varadero where we will hear American Classic Rock songs! The Beatles never visited Cuba because of the Embargo but Paul McCartney came in 2000 while in the Caribbean on a family vacation. He visited music places and joined in with the local artists. Some big named artists have been to Cuba including Jimmy Buffet and The Rolling Stones who drew over 500,000 people to their massive concert!

Day 3
Let’s hit the Courts! Another day of enjoying the tropical weather and our favorite pastime! There are 2 beautiful pools that were restored two years ago along with the entire hotel. Owned by the Melia International Corporation, their hospitality is like what you would expect in Spain! The afternoon is yours to enjoy!

Tonight, we will dine at Terraza Café, a combination of courtyard and inside seating, the food is fantastic and the music is Cuban traditional!

Day 4
Today we will enjoy a friendly Pickleball tournament with some locals that have grown to love the sport! They play every day on courts leased by our partner, Kevin Hernandez. He has taken a parking lot and painted 4 courts for the locals to play. Centerline Adventures is working with him to have those courts resurfaced and add a few more on an area adjacent to the courts he currently leases. This will be an experience for all of us that has never been done in Cuba. The exchange of cultures and personalities will be forever held in our hearts!  An afternoon on the beach will complete this day.

This evening, we are headed to Xanadu! A historic building overlooking the Florida Straits at the far end of Varadero which was built for the Dupont family. This is the exact spot that is 90 miles from Key West. Wear your Guayabera shirts and lovely sundresses for tonight’s dinner!

Day 5
Our last full day in Varadero so let’s hit those courts for as long as we want today! A great day for exploring the town of Varadero if you choose…plenty of taxis to get you there and back!

Tonight, we will have our Farewell Fiesta! We will start on the beach and head back to the Hotel for dinner and a live band! We will have some Salsa lessons tonight so you can take that talent back to the States and teach all your friends! The waxing moon will appear around 5:30pm so it will give way to beautiful skies over Cuba and the Atlantic Ocean!
