Varadero's first proper shopping mall still stands, and although the array of shops may seem underwhelming to an outsider, there are some rather useful tourist locales here, such as a bank, pharmacy, a few souvenir shops and stores selling anything a traveler may need.

Cigars, rum, coffee and honey are some of the items most sought-after by travellers to Cuba, and rightfully so - these locally-produced products make for perfect gifts and souvenirs, and are often a great bargain to purchase in their land of origin. Products of the non-edible variety include wood handicrafts, Cuban art, music paraphernalia and records. For serious antiques and vintage shopping, it might be worth to plan a trip to Havana, where finds range from rare jewellery to books and magazines.
