Learn More about Trinidad

If you are planning a trip to Cuba and are looking for which cities to visit, Trinidad should definitely be on your list. Trinidad is the best preserved colonial city in Cuba, with the old part of the city being a UNESCO World Heritage Site since 1988. Trinidad, like most colonial cities, is beautiful with brightly colored buildings and cobblestone streets: you can learn more about Trinidad's colonial houses on Douce Cahute.

The Plaza Mayor (main square) is the heart of Trinidad, Cuba. Like many Spanish colonial cities, the square is the center of the city with green spaces and amazing churches. There are many restaurants in the buildings surrounding the square, making it a great place to base yourself nearby.

For the best views of Trinidad, head to the top of the tower inside the Palacio Cantero Historical Museum. Make your way to the top of the tower via the spiral staircase. From there, you can take the quintessential photo of Trinidad and the beautiful yellow bell tower with the mountains in the background. On the first floor, there are a number of historical artifacts from the city's past. And the entrance is free!

Trinidad is a small town that would be hard to really get lost in, but walk through the side streets and enjoy all the charm of the city. The entire city is painted in bright yellow, blue and pink. Stroll through the small alleys to take great pictures of the old American cars surrounded by the beautiful colonial architecture of the city. 

Only fifteen minutes from Trinidad is a beautiful beach on the southern shores of Cuba. Day trips or local cabs (10-15€) can take you from the city to spend a day at Playa Ancon beach. If you like beaches, I also suggest you visit Playa Jibacoa on the other coast

Within an hour's drive of Trinidad, there are hundreds of waterfalls ready to be explored. The Salto del Caburni waterfall at 75 m is one of the most popular and is often highly recommended by locals and many visits take place here. The most impressive waterfalls are the El Nicho Falls, with several cascading waterfalls. However, El Nicho is difficult to reach and usually requires a 4×4. Vegas Grande is one of the most picturesque waterfalls in Trinidad, Cuba.

Trinidad is full of many other things to discover, so don't hesitate.
