Trinidad Main plaza high angle view from the Bell Tower of the Saint Francis of Assisi Convent

Grab a torta cubana and a mojito and sway to the Caribbean rhythms of beautiful Trinidad. This former Spanish colonial settlement found its fortune in the early 19th century thanks to the sugar fields of nearby Valle de los Ingenios, creating the wonderfully preserved colonial-style mansions which line Trinidad’s cobbled streets today. A UNESCO world heritage site known for its excellent live music scene, Trinidad has plenty to offer visitors, and is the perfect base from which to explore the pristine Playa Ancón or lush Escambray Mountains.
