Most visitors to this area take all their meals at their hotels. The few available alternatives include the restaurant at Boca de Guamá, and a couple of simple state-run roadside restaurants geared to tourists between Playa Larga and Playa Girón. The best of these is the Cueva de los Peces, Carretera Playa Larga a Girón Km 18 (tel. 45/98-4183), with good seafood and criolla cuisine.
