Alexis really wants to take care of his guest, always smiley, talkative, and ready to support you for all your needs. You will enjoy his company.
The room was clean and comfortable and has wifi; as in the rest of Cuba you'll need Tarjeta Etecsa for internet, but once you have one you can connect from your bed. Breakfast is not included in the rent and cost 5CUC/each per day as in the rest of Cuba. The hostel is 1' walk from a white sandy beach where there are oth. people at night and you can have cocktails.
Playa Larga is a very small village of fishermans and landlors w/ a couple of roads and a couple of white beaches surrounding Bahia de Cochinos (the Bahia itself is not properly a swimming area due to the presence of mangrovias that color the water of brown, but right around, depending on the seasons and the stream, youl find natural crystal water). If you expect to find the common activities of western Countries you won't in Cuba, nor at all in Playa Larga; here you can scooba dive, snorkeling (10CUC an all day excursion to a Cyenote and a shipreck in Cueva de los Peces...very nice!), hunt Coconut on the beach (a nice beach w/ crystal water is right in front to the hotel...don't worry there's only one hotel in Playa Larga right after the scooba center), or as we did stay on the beach at night watching stars, having mojito and dancing in the dark. All hostels here serve fish of the day for dinner, so also Alexis; despite oth.guest where eating at the hostel we had our dinner (a 2kilos fish) at Tiki restaurant, 2' walk from the hostel w/ a faboulous view of the bay and for a ridiculous amount.
In our 15dys trip in Cuba, after Trinidad, the simplicity of Playa Larga makes this place our second favourite, more than Viñales (must visit), Cinefuegos (the french town), Havana (smog and decadent buildings), Santa Clara (you can avoid this).
