Subjects : Nature is the master, the long beach, exotic plants, fauna (birds, animals in general) the flora, are everywhere, the small port with boats and wooden piers, the locals often willing to be portrayed (if you leave a tip with pesos you will be thanked for a long time) and the inevitable American Oldsmobile in Cuba.

Recommended equipment : Here you will be able to use all your equipment, from wide angle to zoom, so those who also have a jack of all trades can make good use of it. A lens for portraits is very useful if you are traveling with people or to portray the premises.

Best months : The climate allows the visit and the photographic performance throughout the sun. Playa Larga is the typical image of the Caribbean: crystal clear waters, white sand, palm trees and the exotic mantle of vegetation that covers the surrounding areas.

How to get there : The only means of transport are private cars that you will have to bargain for the price from wherever you come from on the island. And wherever you come from it will be a wonderful adventure, both for the journey with the views of the countryside and small villages crossed, and for the roads.

Visits : I have not had the opportunity to visit places for a fee and I could not provide further information. However, some elements give the beach its own identity: the Laguna de las Salinas, where birds take refuge from the harshness of winter and a fantastic coral reef that surrounds the bay and is characterized, compared to others, by the presence of the huge lady shark, which swims in its waters. It is not dangerous and you can touch it if you wish.

Notes : Playa Larga, located in Bahía de Cochinos in the Península de Zapata, the second most important tourist destination in the Cuban region of Matanzas.Si it is a beach of 4 km in length and shallow depth with the same crystal clear waters and white sands that make the península de Hicacos so famous, but the difference is that this place is located within a unique protected ecosystem where nature is the protagonist. Therefore, Playa Larga is an ideal place for those who, not wanting to give up the postcard paradisiacal beaches, seek a connection with the wild ecosystem of the peninsula away from mass tourism from other areas of Cuba.About 13 km from the Bay of Cochinos, is Playa Larga, famous, among other things, for being the scene of a conflict, in which a group of Americans, on April 17, 1961, tried to take control of the beach, but was rejected by the Cuban people.
