    To understand Cuba, Trinidad is a must see... It has no renovated colonial boutique hotels or restaurants; it has casa particulars & paladars to experience real cuban life... you don't see any class difference here as you see in Havana... It is mostly poor... You feel insecure for a few minutes because of the people trying to convince you to choose their casa to stay or paladar to eat... Then at night you notice the streets are all empty...
    You just turn the corner of Plaza de Armas, you start to hear music & there they are... all city is together in the square of the casa de la musica, making music & dancing all together until early hours of the morning...
    You drink & you dance... this is what keep this nation together... you realize in Trinidad...

    Probably the most beautifully preserved and artistic colonial city I have ever visited. The buildings are exceptional, great parties in the plaza every night, and huge crashing waterfalls right outside the city. A great contrast to Havana, and worth taking the time to visit. Also a great place to buy some paintings and other art.

    This 500-year-old Spanish colonial city is considered a museum in itself. Set against the dual backdrops of the Caribbean coast and the Escambray mountains, the city offers fantastic cultural and historical opportunities for visitors. Some of the best traditional music is on tap at the many music halls, and the cuisine is top notch. A must for any Cuba itinerary.

    The colonial town of Trinidad is located in the province of Sancti Spíritu. Trinidad offers a romantic atmosphere mixed with history and awe-inspiring architecture. Plaza Mayor, Municipal History Museum, Santísima Trinidad Cathedral are worthy stopovers. Trinidad's Cultural Week is organized in early January. In the last weekend of June, the Feast of Saint John takes place, which lasts for three days. A must-see for those who want to discover another side of Cuba.

Description

Trinidad is a small town in central Cuba and is a UNESCO World Heritage Site. The beautiful 500-year-old historic center is only a few square blocks in size, but is chock full of Spanish colonial architecture—pastel coloured houses, cobblestoned streets, palaces and plazas. A nice way to tour it is to rent a horse and carriage for a few hours. Make sure to check out the Valley of the Sugar Mills, ... read more
which boasts 70 historic mills, and if you want to relax, Topes de Collantes outside the city is one of Cuba’s main ecotourism centers. For beach lovers, Ancon Beach is a classic white sand paradise, and Casilda Bay is popular with snorkelers and divers.
