My wife and I made the mistake one wet day, of leaving Guanabo where we were staying, to visit Playas de Este. We got out of our taxi at a large blue hotel and looked at the adjacent shops. Then we made the mistake of going and sitting at a table at the bar to have an aperitif prior to lunch. A SECURITY MAN appeared to ask my wife if she was Cuban and upon her saying yes, demanded that she should leave immediately, saying that I was Canadian, I could stay. I pointed out that the lady was my partner and that I too would leave, taking my wallet and contents with me - never to return to Playas de Este. Guanabo is much preferable and truly Cuban.

Very clear sea, fresh water you could see the ocean botton . I love the beach and this is one of the best I have been in . It reminds me South Beach without the hotels and restaurants but you can enjoy the sun and the people is very friendly.

If Youre craving a nice day at the beach.Playas del este are a 20-30 minute Taxi ride from Havana. The beaches are usually clean and pleasant.Fairly quiet during the week,but a bit crowded on weekends.A good spot to Meet and mingle Cubans and their Families/friends
