I stayed at LaGoa on my way from Tofu to Maputo. While Tofu is almost nothing else but hotels at LaGoa you can be out of the main tourist areas and get a glimps of the local village life. I was there during low low season and I was the only guest. The manager was really nice and gave me a big discount. Since there was no one else there were no drinks and no food avaible for sell. The stuff was really nice, they showed me around, we went to the beach together and we cooked and ate dinner together.
There are only a few solar lights at night and no hot shower. But the place is really beautiful!
If you come with public transport: make sure you get to Quissico in the early afternoon. There is no transport in the morning and a taxi will be expensive.
