Stayed there with my husband in March 2014 and loved it so much that returned there after the trip around the country to spend the last days of our vacations. By all means the best decision of our trip was to stay in Playa Larga at Costa Azul.
First of all, the hosts are a very nice and adorable couple, it was a pleasure spending time with them. They were also very helpful with organizing trips and excursions around the Baya de Cocinas, as well as finding casas in other cities of Cuba.
Rooms: are very clean and comfortable, with cosy terraces, good air conditioning and all the facilities.
Food: amazing, better than anywhere in Cuba. I suspect that Oriol is a professional chef. Try lobster in sauce and grilled pork. And shrimps. And pina colada. And many more :) Plus, breakfasts were outstanding, as well as the view from the terrace, where you enjoy you meal.
Playa Larga: is a small village, but there's a bank, a cadeca, shops - evrything you need. The place is safe and - unlike Varadero - real.
Beaches: there's a small clean beach with palm trees practically just around the corner and a bigger one in 7-minutes drive.
Activities: there are lots of things to do in Baya de Cocinas. There's a national park Cienaga de Zapata where you can go fishing, birdwatching or visit a crocodile farm and many more (ask Mayelin and Oriol, they have all the information you need). Best diving and snorkeling spots are Punta Perdiz and Cueva de Las Peces (there's also a cnote there!). And of course, Playa Giron is an interesting place.
