No Cuba Vacation is complete without a visit to the charming UNESCO World Heritage town of Trinidad. Trinidad has narrow cobbled streets, views down to the the clear waters of the Caribbean, a vibrant and eclectic music scene that comes alive at dusk, and the nearby Escambray mountain range are well worth exloring.
What can you do in Trinidad, Cuba?
Many visit Trinidad for the day, but for those that stay a few nights, then you can get under the skin of this fantastic and historical city. During the day you may decide to trek to the waterfalls of Topes de Collantes in the nearby Escambray Mountains and take a dip in one of the natural pools, you could cycle down to the coast and find your own little private spot of paradise, charter a boat and fish, take a step back in time and visit a former slave centre that fuelled the sugar boom in the region during the 19th Century all before experiencing live music everynight in the local plaza where you can sip a Bucanero beer, listen to some exceptional music, and for the brave maybe even try a little salsa dancing!
Why we love Trinidad
Trinidad is very much on the tourist radar, and rightfully so. It is a gorgeous place. Narrow cobbled streets, brightly painted houses and terracota rooftops all pointing down towards the Caribbean sea. We advise leaving the city during the day when it can get busy and explore some of the loal quieter areas. At night you can't avoid the local musicians.
