This chapter seeks to capture the ambiance of the pre-revolutionary Cuba in which the author of this book grew up. For Matanzas, one of the main civic issues of the day was the nature of the city's relationship to the emerging Havana–Varadero tourist corridor. The development of Varadero is examined in detail, as is that of San Miguel de los Baños, the other regional star tourist attraction. Urban design in Varadero and San Miguel de los Baños is discussed in some detail, as is the Liceo Club in the 1950s.

Keywords:   Varadero, Liceo Club, pre-revolutionary Cuba
