CASA ALBA CARIBENA
My review: We really enjoyed our stay (2 nights) at this casa!
They offer bikes to go to the beach. You can bike to Playa Ancon or just stop at any other beach you'll see along the way. The breakfast and the dinner were very good! Also the room was very nice, spacious and with a good bathroom with shower.
Really a recommendation!
How was your room?: Nice, big and with a good bathroom and shower.
How was the food they offer?: Very delicious!

Casa Alba Caribeña
spent a very relaxing couple of weeks on the outskirts of La Boca (more peaceful than in the town), an enchanting fishing village close to Trinidad, where the fishermen still employ the old established ways of rowing into the bay in the evening and fishing overnight, their lights twinkling across the water, the mountains silhouetted in the background. The snorkeling/scuba is out of this world (can be arranged through the locals), and the casa is close to great beaches and beachside bars/ restaurant. Bicycles are available to ride up and down the Ancon peninsular, as well as to ride into Trinidad. People are friendly, the cooking is good, and if you want to experience a fast disappearing magical time (in a world being overtaken with american homogeneity), in a area which hasn't change! d for years, this is the place for you.

How was your room?: Large and simply furnished
How was the food they offer?: three meals a day - locally grown (and organic) fruit and vegs, seafood if requested, excellent cook, juices and exquisite coffee.
Other services they offer: as above, they offer laundry, have bikes for rental, will arrange excursions into the local mountains, will arrange transportation to/from Varadero, will arrange scuba, etc.
Other comments: as this casa is on the outskirts, it is quieter late in the evening and early in the morning (unlike the village). also no street lighting which results in beautiful views of the night skies.
