Playa La Llanitas - Ma cabane à Cuba

Playa Las Bocas is a kind of beach suburb of Puerto Padre and serves as a pied-à-terre for its citizens and a very calma playa for travellers in the know and on the cheap.

Clean and modest casas with permits can be rented right by its small beach not quite on the open sea. You'll find that next door at
Las Llanitas (longer and more inviting, without casas).

At the mouth of the bay of Chaparra, hence its name (Bocas=mouths). Access on foot via Puerto Padre. By car from Puerto Padre, through Delicias, Jesus Menendez (Chaparra), turn left north at the rail line in Lora then past La Herradura, and towards the west along the coast past Punto Uvero, Las Llanitas and you're here, dear.

It's a dead-end. Are you taking notes ?

Swim, eat, sleep : bring books and wine as there is only the blue of the sea and sky and maybe of the eyes of your beloved... Rent a bike and ride along the coast past Las Llanitas, Punto Uvero and have a look at Playa La Herradura. Hardy types could consider biking to Jesus Menendez (Chaparra) to visit this interesting colonial town which was the economic centre of the area, with its sugar mill the largest in the East.

A small convenience counter about 2 mins. from the casas. Further, a snack and bar and further again a restaurant in Las Llanitas. Radio Victoria 1050AM, 94,5FM

You're on it ! La Boca is popular during el verano (summer) for the population of Puerto Padre and those travellers who have kept the secret. Playa Las Llanitas (photo pano on top of page) is much longer (some snacks and bars) and the site of a hotel and R&R centre of the Minint (Ministry of the Interior).

On this part of
Las Llanitas beach, the Minint (Ministry of the Interior, the "nosy bad guys") has a staff centre; so the fat guy laughing at you on the beach, you don't want to push around; it's a joke, Señor, por favor ! © sogestour
