La Boca Casa 6 km from Trinidad

Hostal "Vista al Mar"
Got out of the taxi(4cuc) from Trinidad, handed over my passport and in less than 5 minutes I was in one of the two hammocks with my book and a cold Crystal over looking the small beach at the mouth of the river and admiring the view of the mountains across the bay. Made use of one of the rocking chairs after the best lobster supper ever for rum and cigars. Went for 2 days stayed for 3. Beautiful spot to recharge the batteries after Havanna and close to the nightlife in Trinidad.
Manulo is a fantastic cook and loves rock and roll music and Sylvia is a gracious host.
Much of the food is grown in thier backyard. Two rooms, one with one double bed and bath, the other with twin beds and unshared bathroom across the hall.
Small one and two man fish boats go in and out of the river harbour 24/7.
