It is a very small town, but it is off the main tourist areas. The local people were very friendly. It is not far from the Corcodile farms.

We only stayed 1 night and that was enough. Quiet town but nothing to do except walk along the beach and watch the beautiful sunset. Locals are friendly.

I've been there many times and stayed at a number of the private homes, there is lots to see and do in the area. Rent a bike or car or just walk the little town. A true gem, off the grid

Playa Larga or rather Caletan is a bit ramshackle and unfinished . Don’t expect perfect white beaches etc. BUT you do get a pretty beach with a few nice bars and restaurants and a great traveller atmosphere. The water is affected by the river so...More

Playa Larga itself doesn't really have much to offer, but it's definitely a good stop in between other places like Cienfuegos and Viňales or Havana. Also it is a good starting point for going to National Park Ciénaga de Zapata Right in the Playa Larga...More

Water is brown due to soil but with 20 minute drive you can be in coral beach. Best casa's are not on internet, and only available on walk-in basis. If you reserve through airbnb or any other middle-man sites you will be paying double.

I would ask one of the locals when you get into town. In Cuba, everyone knows someone that knows someone that'll know the answer or help you do what you want to do!
