After two days in Havana, we headed to Playa Larga which is a small village in the Bay of Pigs, south west of Havana.
The reason I wanted to go there was by recommendation from a friend on Facebook (thanks Øivind) to go scuba diving there. I have a license to go 18 meters deep, but Gino doesn’t- so this was the perfect opportunity!
We stayed in one part of a couple’s house there (casa particular), and they were just the sweetest people ever! Gino got really sick one night (he had eaten something funky, probably the crocodile…combined with scuba diving and changing pressures etc) and just had the worst fever and shivers ever- luckily it passed relatively fast, but the hosts were so nice and took care of us the best they could.
It truly was a great little gem there, and I am so happy we stopped by on the way down to Trinidad.
Such a cool car that brought us there 🙂 !
Arriving to this after a busy Havana was pure bliss!
The next place that awaited us was Trinidad, more on that soon 😉
