This is my first post on this forum and I definitely believe it won’t be my last!
We returned 2 weeks ago from yet another wonderful vacation at Playa Blanca. This was our 5th visit to “our” island.
Cayo Largo is a place where you go if you want to restore mind and soul. The uniqueness of the island does something to you. It’s not only the suroundings, the 10 star beach, the ocean that makes the difference, it’s the people you meet too that makes a difference between a good vacation and an unforgettable experience.
My review of Playa Blanca is biased. I’m not afraid to say that I toured the island by jeep one year and visited every resort. Sure, Sol Cayo Largo is impressive. It’s huge and may have more offerings but in the afternoon when I got back to Playa Blanca I felt like I was coming home. It’s just something about the rustic that appeals to me.
Food always seems to be a hot topic. The food is not gourment however it’s good Cuban food. I had some of the best roasted turkey, the lobster is to die for. Sometimes they might run out of a certain food. Move on! There’s lots of other variety!
My main reason I go to Playa Blanca is the beach. The first couple of days had high winds and the beach took a beating. Red Flag meant you went knee deep in the water and you will get knocked over by a wave. Then the winds died down and 10 star beach came back. Days are spent bobbing up and down the gentle waves and occasionally body surf the bigger waves that come by.
Life is a beach…
