“Such a lovely place to stay”
Reviewed January 14, 2014

This was a wonderful place to stay, thoroughly recommended. La Boca is a quiet, very friendly village not far from Trinidad. We were made to feel so “at home” and relaxed here; it was great. The hosts were perfect – nothing was ever a problem. And as for the food, so much and so fresh. The fish was amazing. You should count yourself lucky if you end up staying there.

Five nights at hostal Vista al Mar was the highlight of our trip to Cuba. Completely "off the grid" - no T.V. , phones or internet for me to have to deal with - pure heaven! Manolo and Sylvia made us feel so welcome in their well maintained hostal. The room was nice with A/C and a nice ensuite bathroom. Meals taken on the veranda were excellent. Fresh mangos from their tree along with so much more fresh fruit and vegetables along with fresh fish that we watched being caught daily right across the road from us. Sylvia's cooking was great and her friendly service was much appreciated. Manolo is a classic rock fan so we enjoyed listening to lots of old favorites from our past while enjoying the sunset on the wrap around veranda.

We enjoyed wandering around the little village of Playa la Boca. Not much there but in the main square you can get a small cheese pizza for $1.00 CUC or if you want sit down service pop into the Galleon Restaraunt and for $2.00 CUC they will serve you a small Hawaiian (Ham & Pineapple) or if you're a big spender you can get a Shrimp pizza for $3.00 CUC along with your ice cold Cristal or Buccaneer for $1.50 CUC.

If you want to stay with Manolo & Sylvia I recommend that you book via internet through Marcos in Montreal info@particuba.net

Very nice casa particular close to Trinidad. We went there for a few days and everything was awesome. The rooms are standart, clean. The owners are a very nice and kind family, they will help you for anything you need. The food is good and fresh, the place is quiet and beautiful. The owners also have a big, funny and playful dog - a german shepherd. The best thing is that the casa is NOT in the city Trinidad, but it's very close, so if you like walking , you can be there in less than 1 hour. You are between the city and the beach Ancón, but there is few nice, pure and lone beaches, just in a distance from 2 to 5 km from the house, you can do some diving or snorkeling there, that's gonna be really awesome! One of the best places for snorkeling! The beach close to the house is nice, but not that nice like the other beaches. Manolo can give you some advices about eveything you need. If you are going to Trinidad, you should really stay in "Vista al mar" :) Good people, good food and a very good place! There is a big and nice terrace where you can wath the sunset or just relax with a cuban cigar and a nice company!
* Of course, you can notice some common things for Cuba here (no hot water daylong or some lizards running around you and so on) , but that's what makes it different from all the luxury hotels, you can feel the real Cuba, you can taste it with the food, the burning rum or a cold mojito, the cuban cigar.... you can see it in the eyes of the ppl and smell it in the pure sea breeze...
So, in conclusion I highly recommend this place! You will really enjoy everything and leave it relaxed and "loaded" with energy :)

Casa Vista al Mar is a nice house at La Boca Beach, which is a wonderful small beach with an amazing sunset and warm calm water. Manolo and Silvia are great hosts. Manolo is an excellent chef and everything is cosy, clean, easygoing. Only 8 Km from Trinidad, we went there every night by taxi (C.U.C $5,00). It's also easy to go to Cayo Blanco for a short diving experience. I hope I can go there again just to say hello to Manolo and Silvia.

Casa is about ten paces from an amazing beach which gradually slopes into the sea. Beach was either empty or had one or two Cubans on it. Casa grows their own fresh fruit or supply fish fresh from the sea on request. La Boca is ten minutes drive from Trinidad and so relaxed. Couple who run the casa are some of the nicest people we met in Cuba. Absolutely stunning sunsets that have to be seen to be believed. Can be taken in with a glass of rum on the wooden porch from one of the families rocking chairs! Very friendly and very quiet.
